(New York, NY) – As the world watches the clean up efforts in the Gulf, movie fans can see that BP isn’t the only polluter around when they pick up the new blu-ray of CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH!
The classic satire of the nuclear age is now going high-def! Troma Entertainment announced today the June 1 Blu-ray release of CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH. Directed by Richard Haines and Lloyd Kaufman (THE TOXIC AVENGER), CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH takes place in the radioactive halls of Tromaville High School, where a dangerous radiation leak turns great minds into great mutants!
CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH combines the anarchic teen spirit of ROCK N ROLL HIGH SCHOOL and the action of THE WARRIORS to send up the nuclear power movement, lazy bureaucrats, and everyone else in Reagan’s America.
“CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH was written is response to a nuclear power plant being built in Long Island with drunken labor” recalls Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Entertainment and co-director of CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH. “This was not long after Three Mile Island. It wasn’t enough that the corporate elite were draining money out of a nuclear power plant that was only a stone’s throw away from New York City, but they were building it with shoddy materials too!”
Highlights from the disc include as follows: audio commentary by co-director Lloyd Kaufman, deleted scenes, picture commentary by stars Robert and Jennifer Prichard, and trailers.
