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?
