The Toxic Avenger Part III The Last Temptation of Toxie: Drivel
20 November 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The previous two Toxic Avenger films managed a total 5 points out of a potential 20 from me so it goes without saying that Troma hardly have a fan here.

The companies most famous character returns for a third and perhaps worst outing. Here Toxie sells his soul to the devil in order to raise the money for his girlfriends eye surgery, and that's basically it.

Unlike part 2 there aren't even any purile gags to be found here and the whole thing is cringe inducing. If a 5yr old were given money to have a movie filmed based on their writing I'm pretty sure this is what it'd look like.

Toxic vomit, men in tutus, another awkward Toxie sex scene and random dog people are to be found and little else. Childish, dumb and I can't believe there is another one and that I'm going to watch it.

The Good:

Consistent cast

The Bad:

Simply not funny

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Intestines make great skipping ropes

Tattoo removal in the 80's was savage!

Redneck Zombies was not a Disney film
