Troma fans have been eagerly awating their latest film Return to Class of Nuke Em High, the fourth in the popular franchise started back in 1986. Now they are taking the film on tour with their next few stops being in Texas to celebrate the film’s release as well as Troma’s 40th anniversary.
If you’ve never heard about it, well then you are clearly not a true Troma fan, but despite those shortcomings the film follows Tromaville High School where, unfortunately, the glee club has mutated into hideous Cretins. Chrissy and Lauren, two innocent lovers/bloggers must fight not only mutants and monsters, but also the evil Tromorganic Foodstuffs Conglomerate. Will they save Tromaville High School and the world?
