5.0 out of 5 stars Funny film, great extras! BUY IT! March 8, 2001
Terror Firma is an independant film made by Troma, one of the last (if not THE last) small time movie companies left in the United States. You should purchase this movie if for no other reason than to support independant film. But once you do buy it, what will you get? An incredibaly funny, very violent, and fairly titilating movie.
I was talked into watching this movie by an aquantance. Never having seen a Troma film, I wasn't sure what to expect. I thought it would be a low budget slasher flick with lots of fake blood. I was mostly wrong. It turned out to be a very funny and interesting satire on the movie industry, movie making, and society in general. (While also being a slasher flick with lots of fake blood.) I haven't laughed as much at a movie in years.
As for the acting, while most of the actors will never utter the words "I'd like to thank the Academy," the female lead, Alyce LaTourelle, was simply excellent. I was surprised to see someone with as much talent in a low budget picture like this one. She is destined for bigger pictures, but not nessisarily better ones.
The Extras: The DVD is a two disc set that as some of the best extras of ANY DVD I've seen (an I have hundreds.) Most "making of featurettes" are nothing but the actors talking on the set about how excited they are to be making the movie, with clips from the movie thrown in. This DVD has a 90+ minute movie showing the whole process from the first day of shooting to the premier. I would have paid ... for this alone. They also have many deleted scenes, alternative scenes, and bloopers. There's footage of the actors auditioning for the movie (when's the last time you saw that on a DVD?) But wait, there's more!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Usual Troma Fare March 21, 2003
"Terror Firmer" is yet another seedy contribution to the world of cinema by the gang at Troma films. Lloyd Kaufman, the founder of Troma, continues to offer up films loaded with soft-core sex, sickening gore, and acting so bad that it makes a home movie look like a Shakespeare production. Kaufman's best known film is "The Toxic Avenger," a 1985 release that, despite the bizarre premise, succeeded beyond anyone's wildest expectations. Troma took the modest success of "Avenger" and promptly ran it into the ground with a series of stupid sequels and shameless self-promotion. To a great extent, "Terror Firmer" is itself a means of promoting Troma and its no budget films.

"Terror Firmer" is a film about making a film, namely a behind the scenes look at the making of "The Toxic Avenger Part 4." In the process of creating yet another sequel in the Toxic Avenger franchise, we learn that a serial killer is hunting down members of the cast and crew. Kaufman himself stars as the blind (yes, blind) director of the film, interacting with cast and crew members played by Debbie Rochon, Alyce LaTourelle, Will Keenan, Kaufman's real life daughter, adult film star Ron Jeremy, Lemmy from the thrash band Motorhead, and Troma co-founder Michael Herz. Many of these people appeared in other Troma films, so "Terror Firmer" seems to be a sort of reunion/chef-d'oeuvre for Kaufman and company.

The idea behind "Terror Firmer" is to show how difficult it is to make a low budget film. We constantly see the trials and tribulations that actors and crew face during a shooting schedule. Apparently, romances always blossom on a film set, as does professional jealousy. Throw in a pain-in-the-you-know-what prima donna leading lady and you have a typical day in the movie business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Troma Out Does Itself February 15, 2001
By Jon D
I'm a fifteen-year-old Troma fan, and Lloyd Kaufman is a hero of mine. He was coming to Cleveland to show Terror Firmer at the Cinematheque and have a short discussion beforehand. I was extremely disappointed that the theatre said that under absolutely no circumstances will anyone under 18 will anyone be admitted into this movie. Disappointed, I wrote a letter to Lloyd and attatched a copy of an essay I wrote about how he was my hero. To my surprise, someone from Troma's offices called and arranged for me to meet Lloyd one-on-one at the Rock'N'Roll Hall of Fame. To make a long story short, Lloyd spent the afternoon with me, and he was by far THE nicest, kindest person I've ever met, and he encouraged me to persue my passion for film. He gave me one strong word of advice: Don't see Terror Firmer. Now that I own it on dvd (*hah*) I know exactally what me meant. I cannot believe that the same gentelman made this movie, and was the one cursing througout the documentary. The whole point of this story is: This movie has no stops. It's even sicker than the conversations that highschoolers have at lunch. I love it. And if you're interested in filmmaking, the commentary tracks and documentary are an absolute must, as they've given me more insight to the filmmaking process than any other dvd or book. It's a must-have.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the better Troma movies May 14, 2008
A low budget studio is working on the newest installment of "The Toxic Avenger", blind director Larry Benjamin (Lloyd Kaufman) is readying the project. Unfortunately a homicidal maniac is on the loose in the city slaughtering innocent people and collecting their parts, the unknown killer hides out in the studio to kill off the actors during the filming of the movie and one of the workers must try to stop this cretin.

Exciting, ultraviolent, funny and sleazy horror comedy satire from cult movie company Troma is inspired by Lloyd Kaufman's book "How i learned about filmmaking i learned from The Toxic Avenger". It has a movie-within-a-movie-about-a-movie feel like "New Nightmare" and a good dark self-referential sense of humor to go along with it, the film is quite gory as hell even if it is cartoonish and has memorable moments like Michael Hertz (notable Troma actor and producer) getting mutilated by an escalator in Tex Avery fashion. This movie offers tasteless gags, nudity, sex, rock music and appearences by The Toxic Avenger and Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD as it's one of the better and more bloodier Troma movies yet.

The 2-Disc DVD set is phenomenal! It has great extras like three audio commentaries, Deleted scenes with optional commentary, hidden easter eggs, a full length documentary on the making of the movie, trailers to this and other Troma movies, outtakes, interactive Terror Firmer video game, Intro to the TromaDance film festival, music videos, gyno talk with Terror Firmer actress Alyce LaTourelle, chat with Charolette Kaufman, Lloyd Kaufman book intro, comic book to film comparisions, auditions, alternate scenes and endings that were filmed for the Cannes film festival and an option to watch the movie with the deleted scenes in.
