A killer is loose on the set of a low budget film set, and there's no end to the tasteless jokes and kills that will be thrown at you before the credits roll. One of the better latter day Troma efforts I've seen, and something that I could see revisiting with a group in a party setting, since there is so much weird shit going on, it'd be fun to drift in and out of over the course of an evening.

Despite little offering of stuff that can be found in 90% of Troma's library, Terror Firmer gets the job done. The very tasteless, trashy and good-hearted job. Plus, Lloyd Kaufman is just priceless.

Troma, quite possibly the most polarizing production company on the planet, coughs up another irreverently putrid and unabashedly immature yet often genuinely clever 'hurrah' for independent cinema. The definition of love it or hate it.

Like most Troma films, Terror Firmer is difficult to rate. Fans of the studio will love it. Others will likely hate it or be disgusted by it. This film is interesting because it is Troma's self-reflexive film that concerns murders happening on the set of a Troma film. Expect the usual stupidity, gross-out humor, and gore.

Unwatchably bad. There were a few laughs but most of it is just underneath the bottom of the barrel comedy, where immaturity reigns. I really liked Poultrygeist!

Disgusting, hard to watch, hard to tolerate. In other words, one of the better Troma films.

That was officially the most ludicrous, offensive, and straight-up horrible thing I have ever seen. I expected typical Troma insanity; I love "The Toxic Avenger" and such, but this crosses a line.

Quite possibly the BEST Troma film ever made, offers a semi-documentary feel to a movie that has a serial killer loose on the set! All the Troma regulars apprear (Toxie, Mad Cow Boy, etc.) and some of the most inventive death scenes caught on film......."Long Live Independent Cinema"

Lloyd Kaufman, himself, makes this over-the-top Troma camp-fest a total, uproarious hoot!!

This vulgar comedy focuses on a director (played by actual director Lloyd Kaufman) trying to make a crude B-movie as his set is under siege by a brutal serial killer. Terror Firmer has all the crude humor, gory special effects, and tacked-on nudity that marks such Kaufman efforts like The Toxic Avenger and Tromeo & Juliet. I, however, do not think that the shenanigans of this film add up to the likability of those other cult classics. This film is skippable for everyone except the most devout Tromaphiles.

Blind film director Larry Benjamin (played by the real director of "Terror Firmer" and Troma Entertainment company co-founder Lloyd Kaufman) are filming a low budget film with his crew when a mysterious serial-killer shows up and takes out the filming crew one by one. While "Terror Firmer" is a movie on it's own right, it is also somewhat a tribute to film making style of Troma with lots of gore, nudity and over all stupidity. If you are into Troma films like "The Toxic Avenger" and "Sgt. Kabukiman, NYPD" you sure will enjoy this one.

I personally think this is Troma's best movie. Yes, even better than the Toxic Avenger series. A weird mixture of camp, soft core porn, and the most over-the-top gore you've ever seen. It's not for the easily offended but if you have a hard stomach...check it out.

Troma pushes all boundaries proudly! Kaufman is a personal hero of mine (and certainly of countless Americans): Instead of going mainstream and being seduced by the money, he got stuck eternally to the toilet humor and the mentally sick gore he so much embraced since the founding of this splatter/comedy company. Terror Firmer is glory, especially when an escalator plays a part in one of my favorite death scenes ever. See first the Unrated version and see galons of blood fly mindlessly; afterwards, proceed with the R-rated version to see Kaufman laugh at the MPAA!! The whole world is meant to be tromatized! When had you seen this side of meta-film, huh?? Huh?!?!

I grew up watching Troma films in the late 80's early 90's. They made me want to make films. And they made me think that it was possible to make an independent film. This movie gives a good look into what it is like to make an independent film, while being attacked by a serial killer! Everything you want and would expect from a Troma film. One of my favorites!

This is another B movie Schlock fest from the Troma studio. Its silly, stupid & Lloyd Kaufman (the guy that usually comes on in the beginning of the movies) plays a Blind director. Tehre?s a serial Killer on the loose & the movie crew is dropping left & right. Well as usual the gore is up there, the boobs are there & LMAO there?s one silicone slut that well. Mm how can I put this? she got upgraded, then downgraded! Lol?This was at least funny. I do love the B-movie scholock on the occasion. B

A very fun film that had me laughing quite a bit. If you love Troma films (like me), then see it now!

So Lloyd Kaufman makes some of the trashiest movies, and he has been doing so for 30 plus years. From Toxic Avenger to this movie Terror Firmer, Lloyd has never altered his approach to making films. He even has a book All I Need To Know about Filmmaking I Learned from the Toxic Avenger. So what is so special about this movie? This movie seems to be the culmination of his life's work.

The movie is loosely based on the before mentioned book. The movie is about a gender confused killer that is wreaking havoc on a movie that is in production by a blind director, played by Lloyd Kaufman himself. I believe that the movie pays homage to many films that Kaufman and Troma put out to this point. The movie is a Trash film, a Z-Movie if you will. It looks like the budget was no more than 5 bucks. That is the beauty of the movie, that is what makes this movie what it is.

This movie is low budget, and by low budget I mean $500,000. That is low, really low. The movie is gory & disgusting. There are multiple killings in the movie that are really pretty awesome, and creative. One that comes to mind has to do with an escalator. The movie is also just filled with sex. This movie is one penis away from just being a gory horror porn.

I would recommend this movie to anyone who just smoked a fat one and wanted to chill out with some friends and laugh. I am going to give this movie a 2 of 10, it made me laugh and it was really pretty creative, but the movie is too low budget. The movie loses itself a lot, and you forget where your going. This is not the best Troma movie. This is no Toxic Avenger, or Sgt. Kabuki Man N.Y.P.D. this movie really stands on its own.
