Rumor around the net these last few days is that Troma, the fine folks who brought us MOTHER'S DAY and THE TOXIC AVENGER, and about a hundred other movies on similarly tiny budgets and outlandish concepts, might be going under. There's a lot of love and hate thrown towards 'em...where do you fall?

Im a big fan of the older stuff, to be honest I am not the least bit intrested in anything new they have put out.

No, I never cared for anything Troma. I would however like to see another company reissue the four Al Adamson movies that Troma ruined.

No, I don't care. In the distant past I enjoyed movies like Toxic Avenger, Surf Nazis Must Die, and Tromeo and Juliet, but have long since decided to never give them my time and money ever again. Whether or not they stay in business it won't affect my future viewing habits one iota.

There's no "Other" option, as in "Yes - Sad to see them go because yet another company is folding."

I'm more concerned about their back catalog of exploitation classics. I wonder if in this DVD slump they'll be considered worth taking hold of or not. If Retro Shock gets 'em I doubt we'll end up with anything much different. On the other hand BCI may roll the dice and we'll probably get something pretty damn good, either a cheap double feature or a new transfer at a reasonable price.

I will surely miss them. I loved their early work, and look forward to Poultrygeist.

I do like some of their stuff, but regardless if I like anything from them or not, it's a shame to see a company go under.

Wasn't the Toxic Avenger huge at one point; with comics, cartoons and toys?

I guess all that money is gone.

oh well...

yeah but the cartoon bombed and the toys went to bargain bins. I haven't seen really anything by Troma, so I could care less what happens to them. I never heard enough praise to really check out anything they've done, although I have been meaning to see the first Toxic Avenger.

I'll miss 'em...I loved their shit in the early days, I used to rent them all the time from mom and pop video shops. They haven't done much lately, but for nostalgia, they'll be missed if they indeed go under.

Troma still has plenty of money, ya don't see Michael Herz getting skinny do you?

Lloyd is in alot of movies himself these days.

Tromeo & Juliet and Terror Firmer and Toxie 4 are some of my modern faves.

The guy I think you are reffering to is not Michael Herz, just a fat actor. Herz is actually very shy and hates photos and stuff... Tromeo rocks!

Yeah, it's Joe Fleishaker. He's in just about every Troma movie. As Chaostar said, the real Michael Herz doesn't do any publicity for the company and he's even stopped co-directing the films. As far as I know, he just handles the business end of Troma (is he to blame then?) so they have Fleishaker play him in the behind-the-scenes stuff.

Not really. Troma is at least original. Asylum just rips off blockbuster movies.

I don't know what all the no-talent bimbos who best "talent" is flashing their breasts are goin to do. But if there'll be more of them on the streets on New York looking for work, maybe that's a good thing.

Bye bye Troma. Losing you wouldn't affect me one bit.

I welcome the end of the Tromettes, and I welcome the end of Troma even more.

I'd not really be effected by them going under. At the same time, you hate to see any of these small companies go under. Troma movies may be fucking weird and stupid, but they pass on better movies (obviously) to put out the shit they want to put out, stuff their audience from day one has wanted. That's commendable to me.

I went to the asylum's website and yep, every single film there is a crappy rip off.

Yeah, not a big deal for me. Couldn't get into Troma. I liked Graduation Day, but that was originally a Columbia production.

I'd like to see the old Toxie movies released by someone who cares about quality. As a film studio, I don't think they've produced anything worthwhile since the '80s.

I don't care much about any of their new films. But I would love to know what happens to their film library. They do have what I consider to be a lot of pretty good movies and I hope their library goes to someone who would show more care to them than Brentwood.
