Product Description

Amazon.ca

The most widely known of Troma Films' stable of low-budget exploitation, The Toxic Avenger is an exuberantly crude poke at superheroes and monster movies, delivered with a healthy dose of cheap gags, splattery special effects, and T&A. It's also a genuinely funny film, and its no-holds-barred attitude has a grubby charm that eludes most gross-out comedies. The Toxic Avenger opens with an absurdly vicious crew preying upon Melvin, a nebbishy janitor. Their pranks land him in a vat of chemical waste, which transforms him into a lumpy monster that deals out gruesome revenge. Directors (and Troma company heads) Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz aim low in detailing "Toxie's" vengeance spree, and the subsequent carnage should please gorehounds. But they're also savvy enough recognize the film's limitations, and wisely camp things with plenty of slapstick. The result is a frantic and funny mess that should amuse even the most dour cult movie fan. --Paul Gaita

Special Features

As with most Troma DVDs, The Toxic Avenger is loaded with extras that were either shot specifically for the release or culled from their vaults. Codirector Lloyd Kaufman provides a very amusing (and loud!) commentary track that repeats and occasionally supplements many of the stories he told about the film in his terrific 1998 autobiography, All I Need to Know About Filmmaking I Learned from the Toxic Avenger. A collection of missing footage, production stills, and trailers for other Troma titles fill out the archival material; the disc is rounded out by commentary by actor Mark Torgl (who played Melvin), a short "interview" with the Toxic Avenger, and clips from the animated series Toxic Crusaders. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh Troma you are just so perfect March 17 2013
Format:DVD
Troma has got to be the best studio out there. Pretty much all their movies (that have Lloyd/micheal working on them) are just perfectly hilarious. This movie is cheap, bad acting, bad effects, cheesy plot, and the most enjoyable movie out there. GET IT NOW! P.S if you ever get the chance to meet Lloyd I recommend it, he's an insanely cool guy!

The Toxic Avenger is one of the most important films in independent cinema, and without it there would have been no Lord Of The Rings as we know it. Peter Jackson (only one of Hollywood's major directors who admits to be influenced by Toxie, filmstudio Troma and director Lloyd Kaufman) would never have made his earlier horror-flicks which made him famous enough to be chosen to direct this much too expensive series. The Toxic Avenger may have influenced many directors, it has never quite been surpassed in its originality and brilliance, which is even more surprising if you take into account that it was made for the price of Christopher Lee's breakfast on the set of LotR.
Lloyd Kaufman is a genius, and his films are trendsetting, innovative and completely original. The Toxic Avenger is the one that put his (and Michael Herz's) filmcompany Troma on the map and 30 years later they still survive as a truly independent studio, in spite of increasingly below-the-belt practices of the Major Conglomerates who don't really like to have any competition of someone who actually has ORIGINAL IDEAS. Besides Disney, Troma is the only filmcompany in the world that has a legion of fans who follow the Brand in itself. And such a thing can only happen if that brand has proven to be responsible for a continuous string of very special, innovating and high-quality products.
This release is a deserved tribute to one of Horrorfilm's icons. The Toxic Avenger turns 21 this month, and with three sequels to his name he is still more alive than he has ever been. Besides a wonderful TROMAMORPHIC widescreen presentation of the film (that has never looked better) this set offers hours of very interesting bonus-material which makes it quite difficult to turn off the TV set. There is a brand new Audio Commentary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh my god!!! It's the Toxic Avenger... April 5 2004
By Alex
Format:DVD
It all started with a Mop Boy...
His name was Melvin...
Hated by just about everyone, they tortured him. After being cruelly humiliated, the hapless Melvin plunges head first into a barrel of some kind of toxic waste, to emerge the next day transformed into: The Toxic Avenger!!!
One of the Troma Greats, the Toxic Avenger is a classic movie in which good seeks out evil, and finds true love... It is a shame that there are only five stars, because this movie breaks the limit. Go for it, you won't regret it at all!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Troma's best Jan. 24 2004

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yeah. What a relief. Oct. 13 2003
Format:DVD
A Horror-Comedy comparable to Dead Alive, Army of Darkness, Return of the Living Dead, and Re-Animator. The Toxic Avenger is a cheezy super hero movie, and that's the point. Toxie's erly days, were humble, he was the school nerd who was picked on and teased alot, then one day he falls into some toxic waste and it deforms him, but it gives him superhuman strength, and thus he becomes The Toxic Avenger! If you don't like this film, consider yourself ignorant and in desperate need of therapy. This movie is just flat out funny. Smart people will get it, but the stuck up squares will not. This movie was made this way intentionally. This is the only Trama film worth your time. It's so funny. I haven't laughed so hard in forever. This is a 5 star comedy. Definately a must see for people with taste.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's just excellent fun! July 4 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I fell in love with "Toxic Avenger" the very first time I saw it when it first came out. Wanted the DVD version and found it here on Amazon. They say this version is digitally remastered...??? The video was somewhat dirty in parts...and the sound was not excellent. But I'll have to tell you...you'll have to pry this copy out of my cold dead hands...! Love it!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars So atrociously bad, it's almost good. Almost... May 24 2003
Format:DVD
From the production value, the acting, the direction, the annoying way in which the production company treats itself and it's audience, "The Toxic Avenger" may very well be the worst movie in the history of the Universe. Which is a rather dubious distinction considering "The Thin Red Line", and "Keeping the Faith" have been released in this time continuum.
The plot is fairly simple...Some dweeb works at a gym. People at the gym are mean to him. People at the gym pull practical joke on dweeb. Joke goes horribly wrong, and the dweeb is disfigured. Disfigured, the dweeb gets his revenge on the "mean people", and ends up with a girl (I'd say "the girl", but the girl, in this movie, was just some contrived plot device). The only plot twist is that the people who are deservedly mean to the dweeb (the dweeb is the sort of person anyone would pick on), are sadistic murders, who wantonly commit vehicular homicide during the evening, and are so blatantly bigoted, the Republican party will inevitably adopt them as their mascots in the not-too-distant-future.
But stangely enough, this film, which for all intents and purposes should never have been made, actually turns out almost watchable. The gratuitous sex draws in the teenage viewer with their raging hormones, and the very explicit violence draws in the conissuer's of violence, such as myself, who are always looking for the next "Evil Dead." While this movie is nowhere near as good as the "Evil dead", it is a comedy in the same vein as the ED. While bigoted hipster's, murdering defenseless children may seem repugnant, the way it is filmed, just seems so absurd, it actually becomes rather comical (the "head crushing" scene for instance).
