“Its outrageous imagery brings to light the absurdity we’re currently up against as a society dealing with all sorts of turmoil.” Marvin Miranda, LA Weekly
“Toxie, The Troma Team, and I are truly honored to have the historic, world famous Laemmle Theatres present Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Volume 2! This film is by far our most ambitious, fantoxic movie yet and we are very excited to invade Hollywood with true independent art!” stated Lloyd Kaufman.
Starring Asta Paredes and Catherine Corcoran


Quentin Tarantino has been a fan and friend of Troma for years, and when he suggested to Lloyd Kaufman at the Sitges Film Festival that he should create an “Event Film,” Kaufman took note. “Michael Herz and I decided that to mark Troma’s 40th year we, too, would produce an ‘Event Film’ in two volumes just like Quentin did,” says Kaufman, “except slightly less lavish in the budget area.” Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Vol. 1 & 2, directed by Lloyd Kaufman, is a hilarious, thoughtful sci-fi “Event Film” with themes ripped straight from today’s headlines: the contamination and degradation of the world’s food supply, rampant bullying, and LGBTQ love triumphing over prejudice and violence.


The film, a revisiting of Troma’s 1986 Class of Nuke ‘Em High is in the same vein as other classics such as Class of 1984, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, and Carrie, but seen through the unique vision of Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team. Welcome to Tromaville High School where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into a vicious gang of Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lesbian lovers, must fight not only the Cretins, mutants and monsters but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Can they and Kevin the Wonder Duck save Tromaville High School and the world?
