Straight From Troma: WORLD PREMIERE OF TROMA’S FATHER’S DAY AT TORONTO AFTER DARK FILM FESTIVAL ON OCT. 21
Greetings from Tromaville! Troma Entertainment, Inc. is proud to announce that a new Troma film, Father’s Day, will have its world premiere at Toronto After Dark Film Festival, an international showcase of horror and sci-fi films, on Friday, Oct. 21, 9:45pm. Co-sponsored by Rue Morgue Cinemacabre, the screening will be followed by a Q&A with Astron-6, the extraordinary group of film directors behind Father’s Day.
This awesomely ultra-violent, hilarious, and profound film is a masterpiece made by a group of five new Canadian filmmakers — Matthew Kennedy, Conor Sweeney, Jeremy Gillespie, Steven Kostanski and Adam Brooks — with a taste for the Tromatic. The film industry seems to believe that Father’s Day is a follow-up to Charles Kaufman’s masterpiece, Mother’s Day (recently remade by director Brett Ratner), but that could not be further from the truth. Father’s Day is a one-of-a-kind movie that combines the burning sociopolitical themes of patricide and the foibles of the Catholic Church. Like Troma’s The Toxic Avenger, Mother’s Day, and Cannibal! The Musical, Father’s Day is destined to be a Grand Guignol classic. For more details about the premiere and ticket sales, visit http://torontoafterdark.com/2011/.
Established in 1974 by Yale friends Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, Troma Entertainment is one of the longest running independent movie studios in United States’ history and one of the best-known names in the industry. World famous for movie classics like Kaufman’s The Toxic Avenger, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, Class of Nuke’em High, Mother’s Day, and Tromeo and 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. Among today’s stars whose early work can be found in Troma’s 800+ film library are Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Jenna Fischer, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Costner, Fergie, Vincent D’Onofrio and Samuel L. Jackson.
