When Harry Griswold is being yelled at by his Police Chief for wearing a clown costume, you can see a poster on the Chief's table saying "WANTED" in huge letters and showing a picture of the directors, Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz. See more »

In the PG-13 version, the murder of two children, three scenes of female topless nudity, a scene of cocaine use, all bloody impact wounds, a scene that implies fellatio and a woman being eaten by a tiger are censored or removed completely. They can be seen in the unrated director's cut. See more »
Harry Griswold is a clumsy New York cop who one night decides to go to the theater and watch Kabuki. Suddenly guys with machineguns start shooting at the actors on stage and kills the oldest Kabuki-actor.
Harry draws his gun and shield and start shooting at them. When he gets up on the stage, the dying elder Kabuki-actor grabs him and gives him a sloppy kiss. When he does that, he transfers the old Kabuki-spirit to Harry. This is where his problems begin. The old mans daughter, Lotus must now teach him to master his Kabuki-powers to stop the evil one from ruling the earth.
This is the best Troma-movie that I have ever seen. Lloyd Kaufman is one of the coolest directors ever. Funny, violent and silly. It's full of make-up, kimonos, blood, worms and crazy villains. It also has a funny soundtrack. I saw it on the new DVD-release which has a lot of extra features.
If you love Troma-movies you will love this one. I give it a 10/10.
