We had the chance to talk to Lloyd Kaufman last summer, and when we did he mentioned the much-anticipated release of Return To Nuke ‘Em High Vol. I & II. He also told us that he’d cast Lemmy Kilmister as the President of the United States. Even if he’s not a natural-born citizen, that’s someone we’d like to see in the Oval Office.
Unfortunately, Troma has also cast porn legend Ron Jeremy. I interviewed the guy once, and at two in the afternoon, he had the audacity to make me call him back two or three times as he rolled his fat ass out of bed. Granted, he was on the West Coast and I on the East, so he was a little closer to morning than I was, but you still don’t keep people waiting like that. When I finally had him on the phone, he talked endlessly about nothing and kept trying to plug the products he endorses. Such a piece of shit. He truly has nothing to say.
Of course, Debbie Rochon, Leesa Rowland, Lisa Gaye, Brick Bronsky, Dan Snow, and more, plus Kaufman himself, are set to appear in Return to Nuke “em High, which should help expunge the image of Jeremy.
The film’s synopsis, found on www.troma.com, follows:
Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 1 & II is a satirical sci-fi comedy event film with themes ripped straight from today’s headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world’s food supply, rampant bullying, and love triumphing over prejudice. The film is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, and Carrie, but 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 lovers-bloggers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Will they save Tromaville High School and the world?
Troma makes some of the best, truly horrible B-movie crap in the world, and they’ve been at it for 40 years. We can say that the future looks brighter with Return to Nuke ’em High Vol. I & II on the horizon.
