But soft, what light through yonder movie screen breaks???
7 August 2009 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

Troma. A production company name that is well-suited to the phrase "if you have to ask then you really don't wanna know". They make low-budget, highly entertaining schlock for fans of . . . . . . well, low-budget, highly entertaining schlock.

And here they gives us their interpretation of, arguably, William Shakespeare's most famous work. A young couple from two rival families fall in love and complications and tragedy ensue.

However, this being Troma, things are helped along with copious amounts of gratuitous nudity and violence, godawful acting and this time around we also get the occasional snippet of actual Shakespearean material, although not that much.

Juliet kept nekkid in a large, perspex cube, Lemmy playing the narrator, strangely outdated punk styles that are almost so out of style they're acceptable again - it's all here. If you like Troma movies then you'll already know that you'll glean some fun from this but I must say that it's simply not as entertaining as some of their other output although it does have it's obvious novelty value and the good sense to put attractive youngsters in most of the main roles. I am also shallow enough to admit that it gains points from me simply for having the lush Debbie Rochon involved. With her AND Tiffany Shepis in this movie, it's a treat for fans of the Scream Queens.

See this if you like: Terror Firmer, Class Of Nuke 'Em High, The Toxic Avenger.
