This week the Bloodfest goons were joined by the legendary Lloyd Kaufman, founder of Troma and creator of The Toxic Avenger. Lloyd talked with us about airports, Tom Cruise and his unearned wealth, Oliver Stone’s nasal issues, safety on sets, the rise of fascism, free speech on campus and some Troma movies – specifically Shakespeare’s Shitstorm, Terror Firmer, The Toxic Avenger and many more. He also enlisted the Bloodfest idiots to help plan a tour of Kansas and Missouri for Shakespeare’s Shitstorm. Hold tight for information on that! #Bloodfest #Troma #LloydKaufman #ToxicAvenger #TerrorFirmer #TomCruise #JamesGunn #OliverStone #KCI #ATL Check out www.tromanow.com .
The Menu stands in a long tradition of satirical films that take aim at the upper classes and capitalism. From Luis Bunel’s The Exterminating Angel and The Discrete Charm of the Bourgeoisie to Boots Riley’s Sorry to Bother You and Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite, film makers have often turned their craft to the failures of Capitalist societies. The Goons at Bloodfest teamed up with Caitlin Grant from Plug it Up to talk about The Menu, ant capitalist film, and so much more.
