RETURN TO NUKE ‘EM HIGH, VOL. 1 Coming March 18 To Blu-ray!

Return-To-Nuke-Em-High-Vol 1Well, this is exciting if you’re a Troma fan.  I tend to be, but a lot of the time I have to be in the right prepared mindset for a night of Troma goodness.  I’ve seen the original Class Of Nuke ‘Em High and rather liked it.  I even made a zombie short film in high school that referenced that title called Class Of Zombie High.  Oddly, as much as I did enjoy the first one, I never made my way to see the sequel.  Well, if I’m to be reviewing this one, I’m gonna have to brush up and finally visit this one.  Return To Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1 marks the return to the director’s chair for Troma head honcho Lloyd Kaufman.  I hope he’s not too rusty and can deliver some of the extra campy, super goofy goodness that rocked the straight-to-video market back in the hayday of Ma and Pa VHS rental stores.  The film makes its Blu-ray debut (in a groovy green case and stellar poster art) on March 18.  Below, Anchor Bay and Troma deliver you the dirty deets as well as a pre-order link.

Oozing on Blu-ray™ and DVD March 18th!

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – His name is legendary. He’s created some of the most iconic films and characters in all cinema, including the Toxic Avenger and Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD. His name is Lloyd Kaufman and Anchor Bay’s got him! Anchor Bay Films proudly announces the return of Lloyd Kaufman to the theatrical feature director’s chair with the March 18th Blu-ray™ and DVD release ofReturn To Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1.

The cast includes Catherine Corcoran (The Lovely Bones), Asta Paredes (Occupy Cannes!), Debbie Rochon (Tromeo and Juliet), Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister and introducing Kevin the Wonder Duck! Fresh from exclusive theatrical engagements in New York, Los Angeles and other major markets, and still playing in exclusive theatrical engagements all over the world (while receiving excellent mainstream reviews http://return2nukeemhigh.com/press),  Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1 – presented in all its director-approved, unrated glory.

Welcome to Tromaville High School. Your typical high school populated with your basic football jocks, wannabe prom queens and glee club hopefuls. Did I say “typical?” After all, this is Tromaville High, where the glee club has mutated into the hideous Cretins after eating tainted tacos courtesy of the Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate.  Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lovers/bloggers, must not only fight the adolescent beasts and freaks, they must also defeat the evil Conglomerate. Will they, along with their mutant pet duck, save Tromaville High and the rest of society? Return to Nuke ‘Em High, Vol. 1 has it all – satire, sci-fi, plenty of Troma’s world famous green goo, themes of anti-bullying and LGBT rights. If that isn’t enough, how about death by glee club, high falls, meltdowns and fiery explosions? Wait there’s more! There’s plenty of exposed teen viscera (and breasts!) and love triumphing over prejudice. Just likeThe Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and “Glee” – only 100% Troma style!
