The Toxic Avenger: The Unrated Director's Cut

Directed by Lloyd Kaufman, Michael Herz. Starring Gary Schneider, Robert Prichard, Jennifer Babtist, Andree Maranda, Mitchell Cohen. (1985, NR, 101 min.)

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Wed., May 30, 2001

This is the main movie that built the house of Troma, Lloyd Kaufman's production company devoted to low-budget camp. The Toxic Avenger tells the humorous story of a geeky weakling who is turned into a superhero when he is slimed by some toxic waste. The Director's Cut reportedly shows more gore than the original, but it's, no doubt, just as funny.

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead
Lloyd Kaufman's Poultrygeist is a campy zombie comedy that's full of jokes, chicken suits, spewing geysers of various bodily fluids, and barbs flung in the direction of the fast-food industry.
