Editorial Reviews

Return to Nuke `Em High Vol. 1, directed by cult movie legend Lloyd Kaufman, is a satirical sci-fi comedy event film with themes ripped straight from today's headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world's food supply, rampant bullying, love triumphing over prejudice. Nuke `Em is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock `n' Roll High School, and Carrie, but seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team. Welcome to Tromaville High School where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent bloggers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Will they save Tromaville High School and the world? Find out in this brand-new, unhinged classic from beloved Troma Films!

Format: DVD
The film recaps the 1984 classic, including a few memorable nude scenes so you can keep up. The nuclear plant was bull dozed and over top of it was placed an organic food company which sells stuff to the local charter school. The green substance from the food has different effects on people from exploding heads and burning bodies to becoming "Cretins" as did the glee club.

Chrissy (Asta Paredes) the main character runs a blog about the evils of Tromorganic Plant. Catherine Corcoran plays Lauren, the new girl who joins Chrissy.

The humor is non-stop Troma over the top. It is inane and crude as expected. The film also has some spoofs. The teachers' names are Mr. Chips and Miss Crabtree. The principal impersonates Nixon when he talks. The party sex scene is a spoof of the party sex scene in the original 1984 film. It also has some lines that made me laugh. When Lauren was "duck raped" and had a duck's head lodged in her mouth, Chrissy says to her, "Get in, fowl mouth." Ouch! I had to laugh.

Part one ends abruptly (Shades of Hobbit 2) in what appears to be a Carrie-like shower scene.

Film includes exploding heads, large fake male organs, melting breasts, plus your typical Troma style blood and gore.

This film will appeal to only a narrow audience, i.e. Troma fans. 4 stars on the Troma scale.

Perv Guide: F-bomb, sex, and nudity (Catherine Corcoran, Asta Paredes plus about 9 others) In a few of the scenes Asta reminded me of Anne Kendricks, and that can't be all bad.

I demand a refund! This isn't a post-apocalyptic sequel to High School Musical like I was led to believe? Where's Zac Efron?

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.

It's been 27 years since the first NUKE 'EM HIGH movie was released by Troma and times have certainly changed since then. The same can't be said for Troma films. Once heralded as a company that prided itself on releasing some of the most unusual and controversial films of the time it's attempting to continue on with that tradition with this film. So many other companies have jumped on the bandwagon in that 27 year period doing the same thing that you wonder if they can achieve their goal. Leave it to Troma to pull out all the stops and go as far over the top as possible.

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?

This is the first Troma film i have seen, and now i am in love with these type films. This is yhe type of humor i have been looking for forever. Its black comedy, or death comedy dont know witch category. Very very vert extreme gore. So gory thats its hilarious. I mean this is rich art. Not for the faint of heart. I love Eugene the machine, he is like the most testosterone drenched teen i,ve ever seen. The acters and actresses are all so good that i give credit to them all. This is horror comedy, but unlike mainstream films, troma films are all about kenetic energy. Imagine all the people you went to school with, now imagine them as being way way over the top and you have an idea what to expect. i love the campy goober gags, keep em commin.

Remember back in the day when this would have been mail-order? Or maybe you went to a Con, paid parking, got a room, paid admission, just for some crappy VHS copy of some Troma junk? Well figure it out, Sally! You can get this stuffed in your cholesterol dripping mail box and watch this classic piece of troma-trash over and over for cheap! Crack open your money sack and grab a copy..this is classic Troma and YOU need to own it. Trust me, I didn't even have lunch on taco tuesday..it's just a great flick.

Quite funny. Generous amount of nudity. Over the top scenes, heads blowing up. Huge prostetics.

I like to say I'm a big fan of Troma movies, but the truth is, I really only care about Kaufman's oeuvre. I've seen all of his films, and even found something to enjoy in his lesser productions. I went to the sparsely-attended Denver premiere of "Poultrygeist," even though I'd seen it twice already and couldn't be as drunk as I like to be for Troma fare. I've even read his books on filmmaking, even though I don't have any aspirations to be a filmmaker (they're hilarious and chock full of good advice, by the way.)

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.
