Troma Announces “NUKE ‘EM”, “TOXIC AVENGER” Sequel Blu-rays!Movies/TV,News Christopher La Vigna
For Troma fans, the digital age has been quite fruitful: most of their catalog can be found on streaming websites, RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH VOLUME 1 features their slickest looking film to date and the advent of Blu-ray has brought titles such as THE TOXIC AVENGER and CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH to high definition. And now, the maestros of mutation and gore over at Troma Entertainment have announced two new Blu-ray releases for the month of April, featuring two of their more popular splatter sequels.
First up is a Blu-ray/DVD combo of THE TOXIC AVENGER PART II (a/k/a TOXIE IN JAPAN). It includes brand new introduction by the madman himself, Lloyd Kaufman (something Troma fans have come to expect with any of their home video releases), as well as a bevy of other special features, and is notable for being the first hi-def release of the film in North America. Now you can gawk at Toxie’s halfmelted mug in all of its radioactive glory! In addition, Troma has unleashed another infamous sequel to one of its most popular franchises, CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH PART II: SUBHUMANOID MELTDOWN.
A handy trailer provided by Troma (which can viewed below) shows just how far the quality of NUKE ‘EM HIGH PART II has come for its brand new HD release. And how can you resist the offer of crisp, fresh images of chainsmoking bellybuttons and giant rat monsters? The answer is that you can’t, so don’t even try; these two releases would be gems in any exploitation fan’s collection, and both titles are now available for presale over at Amazon.com.
