Picking up immediately after where 'Toxic Avenger Part 2' left off, after getting Apocolypse Inc. out of town, Toxie has nothing to do. He tries to get a job, but fails as a normal job is no place for a creature of superhuman size and strength. Until on day, Toxie is told that his blind girlfriend Claire, has a chance to see again, but it costs a lot of money. Then Toxie gets the opportunity to work as a spokesman for his enemy Apocolypse Inc. He says "yes" so he can get money for Claire. Not knowing what he was doing, Apocolypse Inc. takes over Tromaville and makes everyone slaves to work for them. After Claire's surgery, she opens up Toxie's eyes and he has too battle with The Devil himself so there will be a better future and a room for Toxic Avenger Part 4. Written by Tromaville SPEAKER

Did You Know?


Rick Collins said that during production, three child extras were scared of him in the Devil make up. When he convinced the first two children that it was only make up and even offered for them to feel it, they did and were no longer scared. However, when the third child tried to feel it, he did the Devil's scream and since then, he has admitted he felt bad about doing it. See more »

awful, go straight to "Toxic Avenger 4" instead
4 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After a recap of the last two Toxic Avenger movies, the cartoon violence starts in a local video rental outlet, where the goons of the evil cooperation are out to take over the small mom and pop business, but Toxie puts an end to that. After much cartoon bloodshed, we flash back to when Toxie is going out of his mind because all the evil is gone from Tromaville. He has to resort to stopping old ladies from cheating at cards and making naughty kids eat their Lima beans. To compound this his girlfriend needs an operation to restore her sight. A financially strapped Toxie has to swallow his pride and go to work as an IRS man, video store worker, muffler salesman, and eventually as a spokesman for the evil Apocalypse Inc. This film manages to be worse than even Part 2, by having less action. The dumbing down of the franchise was complete. TRUE fans of Toxie would have to wait till "Citizen Toxie" for a good B-movie as the didn't find it with the first two sequels.

My Grade: D-

DVD Extras: Intro and Commentary by director Lloyd Kaufman; Second commentary by CineSchlocker, Joe Fleishaker; Interviews with Rick Collins, Ron Fazio, Gay Terry, Tracey Mann, and Joe Fleishaker; The stars of Toxic Avenger 3 on the set of Citizen Toxie; Anthology film Achrive screening footage; Naked Dance of the Damned Fat (a 2 and a halm minute putrid short); the same damn Radiation March that's on EVERY Troma DVD; a fake Troma shopping network skit; A look back at Tromadance 2000; Poster and art gallery; 'Where in the World is Toxie?' click various sites on a world map for footage from Troma's many festival visits; Theatrical trail; and trailers for "The Toxic Avenger", "The Toxic Avenger 2", "Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger Part IV" & "Terror Firmer"

Easter Egg: In the 'where in the world is Toxie?' menu there's a hidden X below the Indian Ocean, click on it to find out where Lloyd Kaufman is
