REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Tue., April 9, 2002

The Toxic Avenger series is the franchise that built the house of camp/schlock horror house of Troma Entertainment. In this fourth installment in the adventures of a mop boy turned into a deformed monster, the Toxic Avenger must deal with an evil doppelganger. For more info on Troma see Director and Troma founder Lloyd Kaufman had so much fun in Austin during his SXSW Film appearance last month that he is returning this weekend for the Saturday night screening of his newest film.
