About Return to Nuke 'Em High, Volume 1

Produced in association with STARZ Media, Return to Nuke 'Em High is a satirical sci-fi comedy with themes ripped straight from today's headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world's food supply, rampant bullying, and love triumphing over prejudice. The film 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 lovers-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?

About Lloyd Kaufman, Co-Founder and President of Troma Entertainment

"Lloyd's body of work has now proven to be a seminal influence on film today. Just look at any film created by the likes of Quentin Tarantino, Takashi Miike, Peter Jackson, Eli Roth, Gasper Noé, and James Gunn, to name a few, and you are likely watching a film influenced by Class of Nuke 'Em High, Tromeo & Juliet, or Citizen Toxie." - Stan Lee creator of Spider Man

Legendary Filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman is co-founder and President of New York-based production and distribution company Troma Entertainment and creator of The Toxic Avenger. Over the course of almost 40 years, Troma’s visionary body of work has had a huge impact on pop culture and mainstream filmmaking.  Among today's luminaries whose early work can be found in Troma's 800+ film library are Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Jenna Fischer, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Costner, Fergie, Vincent D'Onofrio, Samuel L. Jackson, James Gunn and Eli Roth.
