A film crew breaks into a wax museum to secretly shoot a film. But by disturbing the waxworks at night they awaken Wax Elvis, Marilyn Monroe and Bettie Page which in turn terrorize the city of Manchester.
A modern, punk adaptation of Shakespeare's classic. Told irreverently, this film attempts to impact the viewer in the same way theatre-goers were affected in Shakespeare's time. Bawdy, Violent, Humorous, and Romantic.Written by
For many years after the film was released movie goers thought that all the tattoos and piercings on Debbie Rochon were real. They were all fake except for one. She pierced her belly button before the start of the film so she could see what it was like to have it done - for character work. During the romantic scenes between her and Jane Jensen the mouth piercings kept falling off which demanded more takes. See more »

The CREDIT GUY here again. You know, it gets a little upsetting. I know no one ever reads the credits. Not a single girl with enormous melons has called me. No one appreciates my profession, but to me the credits are a great form of literature. My credits for SGT. KABUKIMAN, NYPD rivaled the greatest works of Proust! AND NOT A SINGLE OF YOU JERKS CAN TAKE OUT A FEW MINUTES TO READ THEM! Uh, sorry. Please call. See more »

I know very little of Shakespeare's personality, so I haven't a clue as to how he would've felt had he seen this masterfully perverse retelling of his work. I don't much care either. I firmly believe he would have liked this one better than the Leo and Claire version. I also firmly believe that Troma will never cease to amaze us all. Every time they make a film they work with a budget smaller than the life-savings of a third-world peasant, and the cast is dominated by more amateur actors than a school play, and yet, the film flows smoother than wine, and the performances are like platinum. Troma will likely never be surpassed in terms of cult following with a feel that is endearingly John Watersesque. If you like Troma, don't pass this up. If you've never seen Troma, let this be your first. If you hate Troma, then s***w ya.
