Lloyd Kaufman and Airports for Some Reason

  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  .

On the menu

 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.

  Editor's Note: The following contains spoilers for The Outwaters   I have spent decades mapping the far shores of reality.   I have rarely felt fear, safe in the hands of my guides. My face, if not my name, is known in the back alleys and chop shops of Interzone.   I have a reserved table at the noodle shop where the meal cries in your dead mother’s voice. I midwifed for a woman birthing a grown man. I have let my body die to become the new flesh.   I have watched people go feral at a dinner party they couldn’t bring themselves to leave. I have read Sutter Kane. When I hear that a film is “weird” or “out there” or “extreme” I usually roll my eyes.   I can eat a sandwich while I watch the last act of Martyrs. I find Salo to be soothing. I like to nap to Evil Dead. Given my proclivities, I didn’t expect The Outwaters to have much of an effect on me. My expectation was way off base.   The film consists of the video on three memory cards found in the Mojave Desert.   On
