A man decides to turn his moribund life around by winning back his ex-girlfriend, reconciling his relationship with his mother, and dealing with an entire community that has returned from the dead to eat the living.
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.

Based on Lloyd Kaufman's book All I Need To Know About Filmmaking I Learned From The Toxic Avenger. Also, many scenes and characters are references to real events and people on Troma sets. See more »
I'm glad that wasn't a real knife.
If course it was not a real knife. We wouldn't even allow a butter knife on the set. We all know Benjamin's three simple rules to safety. One, safety to humans. Two, safety to people's property. And three, make a good movie.
Yeah, too bad he can't seem to get rule three right.

...this is SO bad it pratically dares you to watch it. The thing that is great about Roger Corman's films is that he is TRYING to make a good film. Hell even the dreck that Israeli mierd meisters Golan/Globus put out under the Cannon moniker were enjoyable (in the so bad its great tradition). Troma on the other hand doesn't even try to make anything that is even remotely entertaining. In their nearly 30 years in business Troma hasn't progressed one iota--as a matter of fact Troma films have become more slapdash. "Terror Firmer" is yet another example of lazy & artless product.
