Midnight Mass

Aug 25 2021 • 1 hr 29 mins

It’s a subhumanoid meltdown! This week, Peaches and Michael rally for “reel” independence as they celebrate Troma Entertainment, the legendary studio that has built a bonafide cult thanks to decades of subversive cinema. In addition to discussing such Tromatic films as THE TOXIC AVENGER and CLASS OF NUKE ‘EM HIGH, our hosts explore the notion of what it means to curate a film landscape that constantly bucks the mainstream. Joining the discussion is the legendary co-founder of Troma himself, Lloyd Kaufman, who shares a bit of his history going against the grain. Then, genre icon Tiffany Shepis stops by to discuss her TROMEO beginnings and what lessons from those punk rock cinema days she still carries with her.  From Toxie to filmmaking moxy, this episode has it all! Go!
