Presented in all its director-approved, unrated glory, Director Lloyd Kaufman’s Return To Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1 arrives on Blu-ray and DVD March 18th from Anchor Bay Films.
The film’s cast includes Catherine Corcoran (The Lovely Bones), Asta Paredes (Occupy Cannes!), Debbie Rochon (Tromeo and Juliet), Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister and introducing Kevin the Wonder Duck!
Welcome to Tromaville High School. Your typical high school populated with your basic football jocks, wannabe prom queens and glee club hopefuls. Did I say “typical?” After all, this is Tromaville High, where the glee club has mutated into the hideous Cretins after eating tainted tacos courtesy of the Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lovers/bloggers, must not only fight the adolescent beasts and freaks, they must also defeat the evil Conglomerate.
Will they, along with their mutant pet duck, save Tromaville High and the rest of society? Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1 has it all – satire, sci-fi, plenty of Troma’s world famous green goo, themes of anti-bullying and LGBT rights. If that isn’t enough, how about death by glee club, high falls, meltdowns and fiery explosions? Wait there’s more! There’s plenty of exposed teen viscera (and breasts!) and love triumphing over prejudice. Just like The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and “Glee” – only 100% Troma style!
Return to Nuke’Em High, Vol. 1 was selected by the Museum of Modern Art as part of their prestigious 2013 “Contenders Series,” an annual collection of visionary cinema, selecting influential, innovative films made and released during the year. 2014 also marks the 40th anniversary of Troma Entertainment, the longest surviving independent film label.
