Here is a link to the “Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1” theatrical trailer:

When first released in theaters in 1986, “Class of Nuke’Em High” became an instant sensation. Its unique blend of horror and humor was cheered by audiences and celebrated by critics. The film spawned two sequels and legions of fans. At Tromaville High School, located a stone’s throw from the local Nuclear Power Plant, the students are getting brighter. In fact, they’re beginning to develop a Troma-green glow. Innocent students mutate into sex-crazed psychos, the Honor Society’s turned into carnivorous, kinky cretins, and the slimy monster stalking the hallways isn’t the principal!

MORE ON TROMA’S “RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH: VOLUMES 1 & 2”

Quentin Tarantino has been a fan and friend of Troma Entertainment for years. When he made “Kill Bill” in two volumes to create an ‘Event Film,’ Lloyd Kaufman took note: “Michael Herz and I decided that to mark Troma’s upcoming 40th year we, too, would produce an ‘Event Film’ in two volumes just like Quentin did,” said Kaufman, “except slightly less lavish in the budget department.”

“Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volume 1 & 2”, directed by Lloyd Kaufman, is a hilarious, thoughtful sci-fi Event Film with themes ripped straight from today’s headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world’s food supply, rampant bullying and LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence. The film, a revisiting of Troma’s 1986 Class of Nuke ‘Em High, is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School and Carrie, but seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team.

Welcome to Tromaville High School where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lesbian lovers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters, but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs conglomerate. Can they and Kevin the Wonder Duck save Tromaville High School and the world?
