The Toxic Avenger (1984)

2020-12-0102:41:13

Somewhere between the suburbs of depravity and the Boulevard of bad taste lies a quaint little burrow known as Tromaville. Unfortunately, Tromaville’s inhabitants reside under the thumb of political corruption and live in fear of the cavalcades of murderous maniacs who roam the streets in search of bloody mayhem. However, born out of a tragedy a hero will rise to take out the trash of the forces of evil and literally clean up the mess of the foulest of the foul, mop in hand.  This month the Rant Army tackles 1984s The Toxic Avenger with an in-depth retrospective featuring star, Mark Torgl and The Last Drive- In music man and Troma Producer, John Brennan.HOST: Brandon A.

Listen along to the Rants From the Black Lodge Podcast as the dig up the beloved big screen adaptation of Stephen King's Pet Sematary.

This episode is a good one so, sit back, laugh and learn about all things Stephen King and Pet Sematary with Brandon and Stankdik Eddy.Note: We experienced a few audio glitches during the recording of this episode so a few seconds were trimmed here and there to fix these issues. Because of this, if you choose to watch the film along with the commentary the syncing maybe slightly off but not to a degree that will ruin the experience.Host: Brandon A.
