Best movie to ever come out of Troma.
15 August 2012 | by wesnoyszSee all my reviews

First off let me say that Troma did not make this movie they produced it. Astron 6,a group of film makers from Canada made and stared in the film.

Father's Day is gross, tasteless, gory, full of nudity, low budget and unapologetic. It's no doubt the best movie out of Troma- and with its only competitor being Cabin in the Woods- best movie of 2011.

The story fallows Ahab- a man on a quest of revenge against the demon who raped and killed his father (and many other father's for that matter). A man whore teenager and fresh out of the the Vatican priest join Ahab on his quest all of whom bring very grindhouse (not Tarantino) qualities to the film.

Set in Tromaville, the film has a start that is a little slow but that all changes once we meet Ahab- from that point on every second of the movie is non-stop entertainment all the way up until the end.

It's Hilarious, gory, creative, gory, raunchy, and really frickin' gory. Basically everything that is good.

You can tell the actor's/film makers are all long time friends with their great chemistry together.

The soundtrack is glorious, it just makes the movie- it's like 80s techno- I can't explain it. The best I can say is watch and listen because the imagery of Father's Day along with the soundtrack is the best combination since a burger and fries.

I'm trying to give as little away as possible because I want you (the reader) to watch this film knowing nothing more then the bare, stripped down, simple plot summery I gave you in the beginning of this review.

You will be surprised, shocked, disgusted and have your pants soiled from the uncontrollable laughter you will be experiencing while watching this film.

There were issues between the makers and producers of this Film (Astron 6 and Troma). I myself am not familiar with the whole situation but basically (though only part of it) Troma didn't give credit when credit was due.

I highly suggest you watch this film with friends (what's the point of entertainment if you're the only one to enjoy it?).

It's a great movie, incredibly fun and unforgettable.

You can buy it off of Tromashop.com or Amazon.com
