Lloyd Kaufman, founder of Troma Entertainment once said of his company, “(We are) the herpes of American cinema (because) we aren’t going anywhere…”
Thus far, Kaufman is not wrong. To the thrill of B-movie enthusiasts everywhere, Troma Entertainment has unleashed its own VHX channel on the world. With a TROMA NOW subscription, $4.99/month gets you access to all things Tromatic: The infamous back catalog, new releases, and exclusive content.
Similar to other streaming services, TROMA NOW is broken up by genres which include zombies, comedies, documentaries (!), and more. Several of the titles even feature bonus material, like commentaries, interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage. In the spirit of keeping up with the times, it’s all in high-definition.
Widely considered the oldest North American independent film studio, Troma’s grotesque style is immediately recognizable. By blending copious amounts of camp, gore, and surreal humor, Troma productions have become a resilient staple in the splatter film genre. Fan favorites like The Toxic Avenger, Tromeo & Juliet, and Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead among others are available in all their grubby cinematic glory.
Troma’s library is something of a “before-they-were-famous-who’s-who.” If you were so inclined, you could seek out projects featuring the likes of Jenna Fischer before she answered the phone at Dunder Mifflin; Dustin Hoffman before he kidnapped Peter Pan’s children; or Kevin Costner before he danced with wolves. If you’re not quite sold at this point, you can always utilize the free 30-day trial before making your stay in Tromaville more cozy.
