As a young, impressionable boy growing up in Lexington, Kentucky during the 80’s, locating a decent copy of anything released by Troma was an almost impossible task. In fact, it was USA’s “Up All Night” that introduced me to the wonderful world of “The Toxic Avenger”, “Surf Nazis Must Die”, and my personal favorite, “Sgt. Kabukiman”. That was, I’m afraid, a very long time ago, and things have changed drastically since my technologically inferior youth. As of this writing, several snazzy titles from Troma’s deep catalog of cinematic debauchery can now be found on Hulu, uncut and unedited, for absolutely nothing. I feel incredibly old.
There are quite a few selections to choose from, though I strongly suggest watching as many as humanly possible before they disappear. However, if you can only devote your free time to three specific features, I highly recommended watching “Cannibal: The Musical”, “Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead”, and the aforementioned revenge thriller “Surf Nazis Must Die”. For a complete list of this very generous helping of mindless mayhem, check out Troma’s page on Hulu.
Welcome to the future.
