Co-founders Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz created Troma in the early 1970’s. It’s now celebrating 40 years of film making! Troma Entertainment, Inc. is the longest running independent movie studio in North America. In addition to commercial success, Troma enjoys a wealth of critical appreciation, exemplified by Troma retrospectives sponsored by the American Cinematheque, Cinemathèque Français, the British Film Institute, the American Film Institute and many others. After creating a new kind of sexy comedy in the 70’s and putting a new face on the movie superhuman hero in the 80’s with The Toxic Avenger, Troma continued to break new ground in the 90’s and 2000’s with quality, entertaining films. In recent years, Troma has emerged with theatrical success with Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, Father’s Day, and Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1.
Many of today’s major stars, directors and writers began their careers in Troma movies. The movie studio has grown steadily since its inception, and now has a library of almost 1,000 films, cartoons and TV shows.
