Stills from "Piranha 2". If you want my advice, stop after the bikini one, because the next shot is a dried up old Richard Dreyfuss. That won't be good for anyone.

Stop the presses, it's time for "The Toxic Avenger 5: The Toxic Twins". Ok, it's only a promo poster that debuted at this week's American Film Market, but it means that development has come along farther than it has in a long while. Lloyd Kaufman is attached to direct (as usual). That just made my week.

What is “information juice”? I’m not 100% sure but maybe you can figure it out after watching this five minute clip Troma’s own Llyoyd Kaufman delivered to the Independent Film and Television Alliance. The alliance is an association of independent producers and distributors of motion picture and television programming, that Kaufman also happens to be Chairperson of.

Who doesn’t love a good musical? Well, me for one, and I’ve always been a firm believer that any man who doesn’t hate their father shouldn’t either. But now I’m a little torn. Why you might ask? Well this week “The Toxic Avenger: The Musical” opened up for previews to the general public in New York City.

Lloyd Kaufman, founder of Troma studios and director of such seminal classics as "The Toxic Avenger" and "Poultrygeist", has long been a supporter of the internet, and even the downloading of his own films. The way he sees it, his company is often "blacklisted" (his words) from major chain stores because of their controversial films, so if a kid in Illinois finds out about Troma by downloading his latest picture, that's ultimately a win in his eyes.

We take a much needed vacation to Tromaville and review Lloyd Kaufman's latest ode to scatological humor.

The crew talks popcorn, plexiglass, and penis monsters.
