The future of Troma
Troma YouTube Channel, Return to the Class of Nuke 'em High this year, three or four Blu-ray releases so far and the Tromadance Filmfestival once a year.
One could say they are still quite active, but it seems to me that the glory days (80s and 90s) are far long behind.
Are Tromettes still relevant? Is Toxie still cult? Do we need Tromaville and Kaufman knowledge on no budget Filmmaking with SyFy and The Asylum pretty much doing the same?

What's your opinion on Troma and the future?

I loved Father's Day and Poultrygeist in recent years. I think the company has relied more on acquistions in the last ten years than making originals like they did when they made a comeback in the late 90's with Tromeo, Toxie 4, and Terror Firmer. Troma's movies are ones I always find myself going back to.
I don't know why they would put almost every movie they've done on youtube, my blu ray player streams youtube and the visual quality of a troma movie is typically par for youtube anyway, it mkes me not want to spend $25 on blu rays.

While I'm not a big fan (I do however love Sgt. Kabukiman), I support Troma and hope they stay in buisness for a long time.

Co-Founder Hertz sons look like they are out of Duck Dynasty, so the future of the compny may be in good hands - this is per the Trent Haaga PSA on Youtube.
