Nerdy Melvin Ferd is transformed into a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength after a prank goes horribly wrong. Melvin becomes the Toxic Avenger and sets out to clean up the streets of Tromaville.
The Toxic Avenger Is the crown jewel of Troma, a film company known for making low-budget and somewhat insane movies. The movie spawned 3 sequels, a stage musical, a cartoon series and several comic series. Toxie, as he is affectionately known, is the mascot for Troma.
The movie is campy and full of over-the-top violence. It never takes itself too seriously. Toxie is a charming, is grotesque hero, who is drawn to evil and compelled to put a stop to it, which usually means killing the evildoers.
Do yourself a favor and watch it. Check out the trailer below
