The Toxic Avenger

Friday, October 10, 2014

Director Lloyd Kaufman and special guests in person! 30th Anniversary — NY Premiere of new HD version!

He was 98lbs of pure nerd until he fell into a barrel of Toxic waste and transformed into a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength! In 1985, The Toxic Avenger opened in one NYC movie theater but just a few short years later, Toxie would become a household name! Up in the superheroic stratosphere with characters as eclectic as Swamp Thing, Spidey, and the Incredible Hulk, The Toxic Avenger endures till this day! Through three smash hit sequels, a children’s cartoon show, lines of comics, toys, public appearances and even his own Nintendo video game, Toxie has been the creature on the scene! From the NY Times to Ralph Nader’s presidential campaign, and beyond, few figures receive as much adoration as the Toxic Avenger, and this wacky, violent and hilarious movie started it all!
