Troma Entertainment, the Maker of Acclaimed B-Movies, Puts 150 Free Films on YouTube

in Film | November 1st, 2012

It all began in 1974. That’s when Troma Entertainment began pumping out schlocky, low-budget B-films that somehow garner the respect of serious cineastes. As you may know, Troma’s films often feature sex, gore, and graphic violence. They also seem custom made for the low-def, pell-mell world of YouTube. Which brings me to my point: Troma has put over 150 movies from its back catalogue on a new YouTube channel, giving users everywhere free access to their distinctive lowbrow films.

The collection includes Cannibal! The Musical, the first feature film created by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. But let’s not overlook these honorable mentions: The Battle of Love’s Return where Oliver Stone made his acting debut; Nightbeast, which features music written by JJ Abrams; and Tromeo and Juliet, the well-reviewed 1996 film that lured in viewers by promising “Body Piercing, Kinky Sex, Dismemberment, The Things That Made Shakespeare Great!”

The Troma catalogue also offers some classic films, including the 1932 film White Zombie with Bela Lugosi and No Substitute For Victory!, a propagandistic pro-Vietnam War documentary hosted by John Wayne. Select films from the Troma YouTube collection will find their way onto our list of 500 Free Movies Online.

Thanks go to Carlos S. for flagging these for us.
