The Toxic Avenger


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

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.

For the ultimate cheese flick, you need look no further than this seminal 1986 film from Troma, the New Jersey film studio that specializes in [weak]cinema. Lloyd Kaufman and gang take deep pleasure in producing only the worst films money cannot buy, films loaded with gore, ..., and hammy acting. "The Toxic Avenger" is a bit different from the other garbage that Troma churns out, mainly due to its "so bad it's good" status. I first saw this film when it came out on video, in 1986 or 1987, and the gore scenes were my first real introduction into the grindhouse cinema world. When a DVD player appeared under the tree at Christmas this year, this was one of the first films I picked up. If anything, I actually thought the movie was better than when I first watched it, an upsetting revelation if there ever was one.
Poor, poor Melvin. He is a nerd who gets absolutely no respect from anyone in Tromaville. Our lovable geek spends most of his time mopping the floor at the local gym, where he inadvertently knocks people into the pool, slaps people with his mop, and horrifies the local ladies with his shlocky grin. Melvin really gets into trouble when he angers four of the local "beautiful" people. For nothing more than a few laughs, these four [people] decide to play a little joke on Melvin, a gag that takes a decidedly terrible turn for the worse when Melvin falls into a barrel of toxic waste. The result of this weird baptism is the Toxic Avenger, a muscle bound, tutu-wearing [strange guy] that decides to battle [the world] in Tromaville.
As Superman, Batman, and other superheroes know, battling [the world] can be a thankless job. The hours stink, someone in charge always thinks you are up to no good, and you have to hide your identity from loved ones.

This is definitely a DVD movie worth owning if your a fan of B-Movies and Horror, the DVD is awesome with lots of good extras including some missing scenes from " The Toxic Avenger" including an Audio Commentary by it's creator Lloyd Kaufman and other goodies.
This is a classic 1986 Horror Comedy parody set in a Urban town near New York City called " Tromaville" ( the Toxic waste capital of the world), a local Janitor Nerd named " Melvin" is picked on constantly and then one day when a Prank backfires on him, he falls into a Barrell of Chemicals that turn him into a powerful Hulk-like Mutant with an instinct only to kill bad guys and be kind to innocient folks, but he becomes the first superhero from New Jersey and must stop the bad guys.
A very entertaining and excellent movie, yeh i know the acting can be laughable but this is a leave your brain at the door and have a good time kind of movie. But be warned, this is definitely a Superhero movie not for kids but for adults cause there are some nudity and graphic gore including the Scene where a Child gets his head crushed by a Car that is not for the faint of the Heart and is a true video nasty that would have been banned in some countries.
