Long Lost Charles Dickens Novella Unearthed by Troma Archivist

posted in News |

 


When Charles Dickens was informed he would not be able to publish A Halloween Carol, he stated, “It was the worst of times, it was the best of times… or something”

A Troma Entertainment archivist has unearthed the long lost Charles Dickens novella A HALLOWEEN CAROL. When 19th century focus groups found his initial story “too spooky”, Mr. Dickens was forced to rethink his story and shift holidays, resulting in A Christmas Carol, which went on to moderate success.

Thankfully, Troma has unearthed the lost manuscript and adapted it into a short film produced for Youtube Space: A HALLOWEEN CAROL: PUMPKIN SPICE EXTRA SPOOKY EDITION. Written and Directed by Lily-Hayes Kaufman, with cinematography from Charlotte Kaufman, the short features Lloyd Kaufman, Catherine Corcoran, Asta Paredes, and the one and only Toxic Avenger!!!

Because of this, the Toxic Avenger has been named as an honorary member of the TOXIC TUTU parade, held by the makers of the mockumentary chronicling the life and times of Mark Torgl (Melvin the Mopboy from the original Toxic Avenger). Starting at 4 pm on Halloween night, they will take to the streets of NYC to celebrate Troma and the holiday. Details can be found at www.toxictutu.com, come out and support good people having a good time!!

Later Halloween night, Tromians in NYC can go to The People’s Improv Theater at 11 o’clock to see Welcome to Hell, hosted by Vincent Welles, Master of the Occult! Vincent is accompanied by his werewolf sidekick and band leader Warren Talbot as well as notable guests, including the Toxic Avenger himself! The show will also feature clips from the new RETURN TO RETURN TO NUKE EM HIGH AKA VOL. 2! All info can be found at https://thepit-nyc.com/event/2015-10-31-welcome-to-hell-helloween-spooktacular.
