Established in 1974 by Yale friends Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, Troma Entertainment is arguably the longest-running independent movie studio in North America, and it’s one of the very few genuine brand names in the industry. World famous for movie classics like Kaufman’s “The Toxic Avenger”, Trey Parker’s “Cannibal, the Musical”, “Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead”, “Class of Nuke ’em High”, Charles Kaufman’s “Mother’s Day” and “Tromeo & Juliet”, Troma’s seminal films are now being remade as big-budget mainstream productions by the likes of Brett Ratner, Richard Saperstein, Akiva Goldsman and Steven Pink. Early work of many of today’s luminaries  can be found in Troma’s library of 1000 films, cartoons, TV shows and shorts. Jenna Fischer, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Costner, Fergie, Vincent D’Onofrio, Samuel L. Jackson, James Gunn and Eli Roth are just a few. Troma’s latest in house productions are “Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volumes 1 & 2”. Troma’s Blu-rays, DVDs, books, t-shirts and movie merchandise can be purchased at Tromashop.
