Storyline

This is the story of a low budget film crew, led by their blind film director, Larry Benjamin (Lloyd Kaufman/co-founder of Troma Inc.), trying to make some art. In addition to the typical trials and travails of a Troma set, the crew finds themselves set upon by a sexually conflicted, bomb bearing serial killer. Production assistant Jennifer (enchanting Alyce LaTourelle) struggles to succeed on set and to decide between the two men in her life - straitlaced Casey (Will Keenan) and over the edge Jerry (Trent Haaga). This threesome heats up as the killer draws even nearer. As the insanity increases and the bodies amass, the crew bands together (both physically and sexually) against the threat in their midst. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Quotes

Andy: Hey Larry, where the fuck did the fat kid go?
Larry Benjamin: Yaeger? I sent him over to Jerry in special effects. He's having his head life cast for the head crushing scene we're filming next. Yaeger's the guy who's going to get his head squished between the cheeks of Toxie's ass.
Andy: Larry, it would be so much faster and cheaper if we use this watermellon with a wig on it like you always do.
Larry Benjamin: I know, but this is one movie we ain't skipping on.

The last great B-movie of the 20th Century
24 October 2008 | by (Tallahassee, Florida) – See all my reviews

After the massive success of Tromeo and Juliet, Lloyd Kaufman knew the direction his movies, as well as Troma, needed to go That direction is hardcore exploitation. After all those ridiculous reality shows made it big, Lloyd probably thought, why the hell not? A Troma movie about the production of "a Troma movie", dedicated to all of those who are dedicated to Troma. Lloyd also knew that he had to top Tromeo and Juliet, at least as far as shock value goes. Just one thing, More blood!! More blood!! The director of this "Troma movie" is played by Kaufman himself, Lloyd casting himself as a blind director is too hilarious for words. Trent Haaga makes an electrifying, first impression as Jerry, an over enthusiastic Troma fan who works on the set. Jerry loves B-cinema, especially Troma movies, so, one might appreciate his enthusiasm. Jerry's even met a special lady, Jennifer, on the set, but one problem, a slick, yet creepy, Spielberg/pickle lover, named Casey has eyes for the same girl. Meanwhile, Larry Benjamin (Lloyd) is driving himself crazy trying to unleash one more Troma movie (art) on an unsuspecting world. Things would probably go smoother if not for disgruntled frat boys, a talentless cast, a worthless crew, and all sorts of freaks with all sorts of issues. Normally, directing a Toxic Avenger sequel revolving around rape, and Toxie aborting his mother, would be no problem for a blind man, but now there's a killer on the set, Killing off the cast, hence the fake-looking blood. The police should probably do something, because all of this is screwing up the continuity even worse. Unlike a Baltimore director, who shall remain nameless, Lloyd Kaufman gives his fans exactly what they crave, every single time, Although, this time is some what of an exaggeration of that fact, which is honestly a little scary. To simplify things, Terror Firmer is like The Toxic Avenger meets Pink Flamigo's meets Dead-Alive. I don't care if you have seen them all, you'll feel compelled to look away at least once while viewing this monstrosity. Terror Firmer is everything we love about B-cinema, unrealistic, offensive, sleaze... well, that is what we love, right? That's what I thought. Terror Firmer is the quintessential, cult classic, the finale, closing out the century that gave us B-cinema, and Troma, of course. Thank's again, Lloyd. 10/10
