Classic 1980's Troma Rubbish!!!
12 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

For, amongst other things, the excellent soundtrack, for having a character called "smeg",for the lush shots of the sky and the bunker area, and for the immortal line "taste some of mommas home cooking Adolf", this films deserves 10 out of 10.

I think the films worst enemies were Troma themselves for the misleading cover art and hyping up the title by adding the "must die" part. I think many people will be disappointed because they are taken in by the cover and blurb. Here in Britain the film was originally released simply as "Surf Nazis" and featured a less sensational cover, you knew more what to expect, although the "a clockwork orange for the 1980's" tag line was a bit of a joke.
