This is the official Troma Studios-approved unrated director's cut of their camp horror classic The Toxic Avenger. The DVD release not only restores Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz's original vision, it also presents a cool digital sampling of the entire Troma mystique. The DVD, like all Troma output, is filled with fake gore, T&A, and cornball humor. Included are various clips from the Toxic Crusaders animated TV series, Tromaville Café TV, and other shorts and skits starring Toxie (the Toxic Avenger's cute, cuddly nickname), as well as trailers for other studio classics like Tromeo and Juliet and The Class of Nuke 'Em High. Viewers can also take an interactive Troma Quiz, or take a tour of Troma Studios. The tour is hosted by Kaufman and highlights gross-out scenes from other Troma movies, short skits like Herz smashing a cheeseburger in his face about five different ways, and lots of striptease. The main creature feature is available with or without commentary and also has a special section for deleted scenes. There is a lot to watch on The Toxic Avenger DVD, and it's presented in the farcical, B-grade, low-budget manner Troma has built its empire on.
