Dammit! I knew that I should've ordered "Grease" with John Travolta and Olivia Newton John instead!!
I can't wait for volume 2 to come out so that I can buy that and demand a refund for it too.
Taking place in the same New Jersey town all of their films take place in we once again have bad guys in the form of crooked politicians and big businessmen determined to make money and ignore public safety in doing so. When a batch of their toxic waste finds its way into the high school lunch menu things begin to happen.
The most notable is the transformation of the school nerds into the terror inducing gang called The Cretins. Wreaking havoc on everyone else in the school they do damage in minor and major form to anyone who crosses their path. That being said they aren't even the main focus of the film.
Instead we focus on two female students (names aren't really important are they in these movies?). One is a rough and tumble sort who doesn't take guff from anyone. The other is a rich girl who is used to getting her way. Of course opposites always attract and suddenly we have two girls in love with each other, a convenient way to show girl on girl simulated sex with plenty of gratuitous nudity. But what else would you expect from a Troma film?Read more ›
The reason I don't care to look into other Troma movies is that, by and large, I'm sure they're terrible. Low-budget films suffer from a menage of deleterious issues: poor lighting, awful sound, incoherent scripts, etc. These problems can utterly ruin an otherwise decent movie, or concept at least. Uncle Lloyd, however, is an experienced filmmaker. It really is quite incredible what he can do with such a low budget, and the meticulous detail he maintains in his work shows up on the film. If you're paying attention, at least.
Going into a Troma film, I expect ludicrous amounts of gore, outrageous (if a bit dated) political incorrectness, and actors that probably didn't aspire to Julliard. What I don't expect is a meandering script that falls apart in the last act, leaving a full third or more of a movie that just becomes a slog. Return to Nuke 'Em High 1, Vol. 1 isn't that exactly, but its unique status in Kaufman's filmography does have certain effects.
Volume 2 of this film isn't going to be a sequel; it's going to be the end of the movie. And everyone knows that the gore, shlock, genital fest that is the climax of a Troma film is by far the best and most memorable part.Read more ›

I don't know what to make of this movie. It was bad. REALLY really bad. So bad, in fact, that it seems rather impossible to think it wasn't intentional. Read morePublished on April 13, 2014 by Marvin Powell
