I have always been fascinated by the films Troma has put out over the
years. I grew up on Toxic Avenger and all those wonderfully, low budget
movies. Tromatized was a film on prescreen.com that I watched as soon
as I got my subscription. What I really wanted was to know more about
the man behind the mask, Llyod Kaufman, which, unfortunately, the movie
failed to do to where I felt satisfied.
The movie was very well put together and flew by. I enjoyed the insight
the film did bring to Lloyd's life, however I felt it was missing the
heart. It could've been a very warm film, from a passionate director
who produces horrifying images on screen, which would be the "catch".
It failed to do so, but by no means does this make the movie a flop.
It's very much the opposite.
It was a delightful film, with the typical gory, gross images you've
come to expect from a film about Llyod or Troma, which will not attract
anyone who is turned off by the independent legendary studio from New
York. Although, even if you have a slight interest in their movies, I'm
sure you will walk away inspired.
