The Troma Team is proud to announce their return to Portsmouth, New Hampshire and the Seacoast Repertory Theatre for the 2nd Annual Troma-Fest in February 2014. Troma-Fest will feature three different Tro-Masterpieces on three exciting nights, including the New Hampshire Premiere of “Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1” on February 28th.

Troma-Fest begins on Feb. 12th with an “Anti-Valentines Day” screening of “Tromeo and Juliet” featuring a live music pre-show provided by local noise rockers The Erotic City Electric Blues Band covering the worst love songs of all time and hosted by the hilarious Timothy Fife and the “Queen of B’s”, Bunny Wonderland. “Tromeo and Juliet” screens at 7:30pm.

On Feb. 21st Troma-Fest continues with “Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead.” Star of the film, Jason Yachanin will be in attendance for an onstage Q&A. Live music from Portland Maine’s punk rock gods Covered In Bees (who also happen to be featured on the Poultrygeist soundtrack) opens the show. “Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead” will screen at 8pm.

Then on Feb. 28th, legendary director and creator of the “Toxic Avenger”, Lloyd Kaufman returns to Portsmouth for the official New Hampshire PREMIERE of “Return To Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1.” This very special screening will feature an onstage Q&A with Lloyd Kaufman after the film. The Troma-Fest wrap party will commence following the Q&A at The Press Room. “Return To Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1” premieres at 8 pm.

Here’s what the critics are saying about “Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1!

Sundance Channel –

“… delicious sci-fi horror comedy”

Interview –

“People were cheering, yelling, laughing, jumping out of their seats, and just contributing wholeheartedly to the onscreen festivities. It was amazing.”

Time Out –

3 Stars!
“The films by the fine folks at Lloyd Kaufman’s trashy Troma Entertainment require their own critical scale-consider this one half hilariously awful and half awfully hilarious.

As unlikely as it may sound, put in the plus column a whole lotta bad taste: shockingly inappropriate jokes about high-school shootings, Jerry Sandusky and George Zimmerman; a rampaging, radioactive penis that burrows into an unlucky character’s chest cavity and eats his heart. (You know, that sort of thing.) The movie hinges on a lengthy lesbian sex scene between in-on-the-joke leads Asta Paredes and Catherine Corcoran; Blue Is the Warmest Color this ain’t.”

The New York Times –

“Powered by ribald bursts of bad taste and bodily fluids… The overall effect is [sic] joyous.”

All of the screenings are Pay-What-You-Can or you can pick up your VIP “Slime Pass” for $20. The pass will get you into all three nights of the festival, priority seating, and a limited edition signed poster from Lloyd Kaufman (limited to the first 50 passes sold).

Advanced tickets and Slime Passes may be purchased at Seacoast Repertory Theatre, over the phone by calling 603-433-4472, or online at www.seacoastrep.org.

Quentin Tarantino has long been a fan and friend of Troma Entertainment. 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 it’s 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?
