TOXIE SPEAKS FRENCH, French-Language Troma Titles Available in Canada
Troma Entertainment is pleased to announce that Canadian video distributor, Video Services Corporation, will release one French-language Troma title per month, commencing with the January 8th release of the Troma’s iconic Toxic Avenger, marking the first time in history that the French-language version of the classic will be available in French Canada. “We withheld the Toxic Avenger from Quebec until we were sure that province was not breaking away from Canada,” says Troma president Lloyd Kaufman. “Vive Quebec TROMATIQUE!”
This month, VSC will also release English-language versions of Troma’s latest productions, Father’s Day, Purge, and Doomsday County. In February, VSC will follow up with the French-language version of Troma’s 1986 classic, Class of Nuke ‘Em High, and English-language versions of The Taint and Mr. Bricks: A Heavy Metal Murder Musical.
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 luminaries 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, Samuel L.
