Terror Firmer Reviews
TROMA may not be known for AWARD WINNING FILMS, but I will admit that they don't soften up. They continue to push the envelope and stick to their guns which is why they've been around for 35 years.
You can learn alot about filmmaking from TERROR FIRMER. I like Spielberg, but I still get a laugh out of me when they poke fun of him cuz I honestly dont think his later movies match what he did with JAWS, DUEL, and Raiders of the Lost ark. I loved Saving Private Ryan though.
A very fun film that had me laughing quite a bit. If you love Troma films (like me), then see it now!
The story though for this one isn't quite as interesting as the other Troma classics.
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.

It's sort of a spoof of Troma movies in general and outside of that context it's not going to make much sense to the casual viewer.
That said, if you know what you're getting into then you'll have a blast watching this filth.
