Welcome to Deepest, Darkest Tromaville
20 July 2005 | by chuckcSee all my reviews

"Farts of Darkness" is, in some ways, more entertaining than the movie it documents ("Terror Firmer"). It's like walking into the pages of Director Lloyd Kaufman's book "All I Need to Know About Film-making I Learned from the Toxic Avenger" (more so than "Terror Firmer," which was inspired by the same book).

Here you see Troma at its best and worst--for example, making a rooftop into a "street" to get around a lack of a permit to film a scene on the ground, or showing an actor actually vomiting into a toilet after doing multiple retakes of a scene where he's forced to eat fake feces (which look disturbingly realistic). This same actor is later forced to run around Times Square buck naked, all for the sake of film.

It's a funny, disturbing, essential, disgusting look at low-budget movie making, and it's especially entertaining after reading Kaufman's book.
