As you've heard, Troma has finally making it's Blu-Ray debut! I've made this thread to keep track on the Blu-Rays Troma will release for 2010 and beyond.

First off, we all know Poultrygeist is heading to Blu in February.:

And now, Tromeo and Juliet will be released on Blu-Ray March 30th!:

They're probably going to release newer things that may have film masters for them? Even most of their dvd releases have been VHS quality- used to shrug and roll my eyes but now it really feeds my VHS nostalgia so I'm not complaining.

Yeah, it will probably be a newer flicks for blu ray thing. I do not understand why though, since I am still waiting for widescreem version of The Last Horror Film, Mother's Day, Graduation Day, Girls School Screamers and The Children, to name a few. >.> :( Oh well.

But most Troma films are shot in full screen (with the expectation of Poultrygeist). It's only Toxic Avenger and Tromeo & Juliet that are, to this day, unconfirmed if they were shot either in full screen or widescreen.

So that means that their Blu-Rays will be 1st gen DVD quality?:p

I wish someone besides Troma had this one and BLOODSUCKING FREAKS, would love to see a real special edition of these two with extras and prestine remastered prints in original aspect ration. You know you're never gonna see anything like that under the Troma label. :(

That's what I'm saying. They could easily leave the remastering and production to a more capable company like BU, Dark Sky, Lionsgate, etc., who would probably be more than happy to pay a licensing fee and would ultimately produce a more satisfying product. Not to mention Troma fans would buy these things up like hot cakes.

I would definitely wait and see some reviews first. Troma are far from consistent in their DVD quality, and being as they are the new Blu garbage men in the dump...let's see how they do. They'll have to strike some new transfers for sure.

They could easily go the way of, oh, say Timeless Media Group who releases Blu-rays upconverted in 720p and call them Hi-Def. :rolleyes:

I'll gladly go for The Toxic Avenger and Class of Nuke Em High if they're a noticeable step-up in quality from previous releases. I still have my autographed gold Toxie LD, too. May also budge on Tromeo and Juliet if price + quality's there..

I'll bet these are nothing more than the same DVD masters transferred over to Blu. I wouldn't get your hopes up for anything spectacular.

Yeah I would like to see comparison shots as this reviewer really ripped apart the video quality, and the reviewer seems to be more familiar with Troma releases.I haven't grabbed any new Troma DVDs in a few years, I have to admit, but I'd picked a couple dozen of 'em up till then...and I've been devouring their movies for right at 20 years now. That Blu-ray disc of Poultrygeist is definitely the best I've ever seen a Troma flick look, and it generally falls anywhere from passably-okay-to-pretty great...it just never looks like high definition.

Obviously a movie like this isn't going to sparkle like some kind of quarter-billion dollar blockbuster or anything, but even the lowest of the low-budget movies I've watched on Blu-ray -- like Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter -- were still clearly high-def at a glance. The muddy grain structure, lack of detail, soft edges, etc. here, on the other hand, all look like I'm watching a DVD. Out of boredom, I took one of the screenshots from my review, resized it down to 1000 pixels, and then resized it back to 1920 pixels, and there was zero difference. That doesn't necessarily prove the Blu-ray disc is an upconvert, but it would seem to point that there's not all that much detail to lose.

I don't have this particular DVD to do a direct comparison, although a couple of people I'd asked have told me the screenshots I posted looked pretty much the same to them. I can definitely believe that the BD looks a little better than the DVD, but I bet they're both still from the same standard-def master. It might look better by comparison, but that says more about the DVD than the Blu-ray disc. To be fair, no one else I've seen is saying what I am, so maybe I'm the odd guy out here, but I really don't think I'm wrong here. (All the early reviews of the HD DVD of The Perfect Storm were exceptionally glowing too except for mine, and that shook out my way pretty quickly. Maybe I'll be proven right in the end here too... :))

I'll tell you what, though: if some of you guys could post some screenshots from the DVD and give me the timecodes, I'll post the same shots from the BD.

I just watched the SD of this, and it may very well be the best in house movie they've ever done. The songs and the beginning are labored (not the graveyard opening, that's good), but everything in the restaurant is pretty much pure gold.

I'm kinda surprised how much film damage there was, and it has a solid level of grain throughout. Very rare to see a gritty movie like that today. Kinda puts to shame the obviousness of Grindhouse.

If I had it to do over, I'd buy the Blu first, but as it stands I think I'll be satisfied with the SD until a large sale comes about.

This is definitely the best looking Troma film out there and surprisingly one of their most well produced in my opinion. Though the film does lack detail in many scenes, I definitely think it's an HD transfer and not an upconvert as the colors are fantastic and there is overall more detail than what one would see in standard def.

I pre-ordered all three for $13.99 at Amazon, so hopefully I won't be disappointed in the quality. I' mmost interested in seeing Pep Squad in HD, as the old letterbox DVD shows it's age. I still don't know why Troma are re-releasing it, as it had absolutely nothing to do with them originally.

Sadly I can't take screens straight off the disc until I go over my friend's house sometime next week, but I did take a few shots off of my TV using a digital camera, and they came out halfway decent. They'll definitely give you an idea of the quality:

DVDTalk has a review for Class Of Nuke 'Em High!:

http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/41793/class-of-nuke-em-high/

In case you're wondering, the Blu-Ray presents the film in 1.85:1 Widescreeen. It might stir some controversy, but unlike The Evil Dead, most Troma films are shot in full screen and matted in widescreen for theatrical viewing (if I'm not mistaken).

I received the Class of Nuke 'Em High Blu-ray yesterday, and it looks fantastic. I'm truly shocked that it looks as good as it does. This easily puts the old DVD transfer to shame in every single way. I also thought the widescreen framing looked great, and didn't notice any issues with it. This is likely the best we'll see this film look in our lifetimes.

Unfortunately the standard audio track included is no upgrade over the DVD, but that's a minor quibble...

The Blu-ray also runs a couple of minutes longer in running time on the film than the old DVD. I'm not sure what's up with that?

Maybe Tromeo & Juliet, but I can't see how CONH was rescheduled as mine has already shipped.

Got my Nuke'em High Blu yesterday from Amazon.

Fantastic transfer - even looked great matted 1.85:1 (sorry Lloyd). But there was a spelling mistake in the main menu... "Special Features" has a misplaced 'u'. Also loved the easter egg... an hours worth nude work-out!

Can't believe the delay was caused by menu grammer though... probably just ran short on production.

So I've determined two mistakes with this first pressing of discs. There is the aforementioned spelling mistake, which doesn't bother me really at all. The second mistake also explains the curiously longer runtime. For some reason, after the end credits end, music from the film continues to play over a black screen for an additional three minutes. I don't know if this was a mistake or some strange ode to the opening of Kubrick's 2001 (I'm reaching here), but either way it's after the end credits finish so it doesn't mess up the film any.

Supposedly the film was always like that. I'm fairly certain I read about it on imdb.

I just want to know if this is region free. I know Poultrygeist is, so I'm hoping Nuke em' High is as well.

Well my copy of Nuke Em High arrived yesterday and I was pretty pleased over all. I was hopping for some more vivid colours but this is still the best the film has ever looked. There is definitely a lot more fine detail to be seen here.

The sound is a bit of a let-down and doesn't really boom out of the speakers. I think I even noticed a break in the track as one of the female Clayton's (I think that's what they were called) is taking a leak in the men's urinal.

Menu wise I was pretty impressed. The most annoying part is that the deleted scenes didn't have a play all button and you had to sit through the menu intro after each scene.

Besides those little complaints this new blu is easily the best way to see Nuke Em High and is well worth buying.

I think the sound is actually worse on the Blu-ray compared to the old DVD. I popped the old DVD in the other week and the bitrate of the audio stream was something like 384kbps, and the Blu-ray's was just 224kbps...or something similar.

I don't really understand why they didn't just use an uncompressed PCM 2.0 audio track, it could have easily fit on the single-layered Blu-ray.

Watched Tromeo last night and thought it wasn't too bad as I'd never seen the film before.

Does anyone else's deleted scenes play up though? The second one which is a sex scene loops the audio from the first one rather than play the correct track. Once the third starts up there's no problem. It's just that second scene.

Hopefully we'll see The Toxic Avenger announced for Blu soon! I was completely blown away by the video upgrade on Class of Nuke 'Em High from their DVD (which the VHS I think looks better than). Sure the audio might not have been as loud as it could have been, but still sounds clear, but damn does Nuke 'Em High look glorious in HD and 1.85:1. So I'm waiting for Toxie in HD and widescreen hopefully in 2011.

That would be great for Mother's Day. However, at this point it is probably too late. The remake is due out in a month, and there's not enough time to coincide.

After the remake is out there, I doubt Anchor Bay will have any interest in releasing it. They released I Spit On Your Grave alongside the remake. They coincided Battle Royale with The Hunger Games. Not too mention they have quite a few catalog titles of their own that they are sitting on (Re-Animator, Phantasm, etc).

Father's Day has been announced!:

http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=8596

"Independent distributors Troma Entertainment will release Adam Brooks' horror comedy Father's Day (2011) as combo pack (Blu-ray/DVD) on June 12th. Last year, the film won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. Street date is June 12th.

The urban legend known as 'The Father's Day Killer' began some years after the demise of serial rapist/murderer Chris Fuchman. Since the 1970s, the use of contraceptives has tripped in North America alone and a generation of fathers fell asleep with the covers pulled tight, buttocks clenched. The story has become a fire-side cautionary ritual on camping trips, often used by fathers to warn their sons of the dangers of unplanned pregnancy. That deep fear of penetration, violation and eventually death waned as the murder and rape of fathers continued to decline all over the world. Unfortunately, those numbers did not remain low, and it would seem that the legend is not yet complete...

Ahab, a man obsessed with exacting a brutal, violent revenge on the man who murdered his dad, joins John, an eager priest and Twink, a hot-headed street hustler on an epic quest to find and defeat this mythical monster known as Chris Fuchman a.k.a The Father's Day Killer."


I also found this in the comments section regarding Mother's Day and Surf Nazis:

"Lloyd assured me at a convention in jersey last month that both blus would be out in time for their respective holidays."

I think its pretty rad they’re including the soundtrack. I really wish more DVD/BD releases would include the soundtrack if possible. And the little bit I heard of the soundtrack (from the trailer) sounded pretty awesome.

I seriously can’t wait to see this flick though. It looks absolutely insane. I just hope the movie itself hasn’t gone through the “Grindhouse filter”. All that CG film grain/scratches and what have you is cool for the trailer, but that shit just pisses me off when they put that in the actual movie.

Plus the chick in the movie makes my peepee harder than a ten pound bag of nickel jaw breakers.

Great news! The original Mother's Day is finally coming to Blu-ray thanks to Anchor Bay!:

http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/news/exclusive-anchor-bay-set-to-release-orignal-mothers-day-on-dvd-blu-ray-this-fall

"We're proud to exclusively announce that Anchor Bay Entertainment has decided to release Charles Kaufman's 1980 horror flick MOTHER'S DAY for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray September 4th of this year. You can pre-order either format as early as August 8th.

Per an official presser:

Originally released by Troma Entertainment in 1980, the film shocked critics, but garnered a huge cult following among fans of the genre, including Hostel director Eli Roth, and director of Saw II-IV, Darren Lynn Bousman, who helmed the 2012 remake starring Rebecca De Mornay.

Directed by Charles Kaufman and written by Kaufman and Warren Leight, the original Mother’s Day follows three young women abducted by homicidal momma’s boys Ike and Addley, while camping. Ike and Addley are goaded by their “Mother” into violent and graphic acts of torture against the three women. While doing everything to stay alive, the three women muster the courage escape, and serve their maniacal abductors some old-fashioned justice!

Featuring an all-new HD transfer, and never-before-seen bonus features, including commentary, behind-the-scenes footage, and a newly created featurette with genre favorite Eli Roth (Producer of The Last Exorcism, Grindhouse and Hostel 1 & 2), fans can finally add this long-awaited cult classic to their library, and new fans can experience the terror of Mother and her bloodthirsty boys for the first time.

Wow, word is the original MD is Roth's favorite flick, a topic he addresses on the bonus features. A must own then, right?! Hell yeah it is!


Again, MOTHER'S DAY hits DVD & Blu-ray for the first time September 4th."


Absolutely wonderful; Anchor Bay and Troma joining forces. Why can't they do this more often?

Looks like this will be the first DVD/Blu release of a Troma film to feature a 5.1 track (no word if the original mono is included)! Incidentally, IMO, I feel the film should've been presented in 1.66:1 for the new release.

See that's the problem. We're only hearing what Astron-6 is telling us. I'm not saying that Troma is innocent in this but I want to hear what both sides have to say before attacking anyone. Michael Herz is trying to resolve the situation but Astron 6 wants nothing to do with it.

Astron 6's final cut doesn't sound too different from what Troma is putting out. Some changes in the sound FX, some untweaked fx shots and music and that's it (according to their facebook). If Troma's version is the same one they were selling (btw how is it selling "bootlegs" when they are selling their own film? They did the same thing with Citizen Toxie back in 2000) than it's just fine. The movie rocks in that cut.

(btw how is it selling "bootlegs" when they are selling their own film? They did the same thing with Citizen Toxie back in 2000)

I suppose that is technically true. Still kind of a dick move on Troma’s part. Lloyd always preaches how the evil corporate movies companies always fuck over the film makers, yet he goes and sells copies of Father’s Day without the film makers acknowledgment?...and it’s not even the version of the film that the Astron-6 approved of to boot!...not cool at all.

I read it all started at the Toronto trailer premiere. Astron-6 cut a brand new, lengthier trailer on their own dime specifically for this event. They flew to the screening (also on their own dime) only for Lloyd to show the same short trailer that everyone has seen. I guess Lloyd never once apologized or even admitted he did anything wrong. Astron-6 were not happy.

I also read that Astron-6 didn’t even see any production money until after the film was finished…even when they received it, it wasn’t the amount Troma promised.

Most of what I read is from the Atron-6 camp, but that’s only because I haven’t found anything posted by Troma’s people explaining their side of the situation. Most of what’s posted on Troma’s behalf is usually petty jabs at Astron-6.

All I know is, I better get the BD soon…I want to see this fucking movie already.

Got the set today.

I don't have a Blu-ray player yet so I couldn't take a peek at that disc.

The first DVD disc is the movie, trailer and 2 deleted scenes. PQ is excellent but there's something odd. The movie is non-anamorphic. Well maybe not too odd since Blood Junkie and Toxic Avenger 21st Anniversary edition was as well. Didn't bother me in the slightest but I know others would like to know about it.

The 2nd DVD disc is special features. Not much to it TBH. Some short films, short featurette, premiere stuff etc. Too bad about the feud had to happen because I have a feeling this set would have been Troma's best.

The soundtrack is great. I've listened to The Hunter and We are the Universe quite a few times now.
