Blood, Boobs & Beast!
I feel like I should have one of Johnny Carson's characters, The Great Carnac, respond here: "What will the new Troma film be about?" That's about the best I can come up with for now.
I ran into this documentary, Blood, Boobs & Beast! on Don Dohler who was associated with Troma films, and I guess the title says it all. Their lowbrow films have a certain cult status. I can't say I'm a huge fan or care too much for a diet of such fare, but they have their place. I watched the Toxic Avenger way back when they were popular on HBO or on one of the other paid cable networks. They were fun and goofy, and just something out of the ordinary. I haven't watched this entire film yet, but have saved it on my YT to watch later.
Blood, Boobs & Beast! from what I have found is the life story on Don Dohler, whose low budget science fiction and horror films have been called everything from "oddly brilliant" to "some of the worse films of all time." (Remind you of anyone?) Following Dohler through the last few years of his life while he was making his last film "Dead Hunt." It also mentions his underground comix character ProJunior (sort of like Mad magazine's Alfred E. Neuman) and his film making how-to magazine, Cinemagic. It also features several interviews about him and his work by other people in the film and comix community. easttthh
At any rate, with Troma you knew you weren't watching anything trying to aspire to high art, it was just campy fun, escapism, and I always suspected they were inspired by directors like: Roger Cormen, Ed Wood Jr., and others like that. At any rate, they carved out a niche for themselves, and I don't expect their films to appeal to everyone, but they are what they are. At any rate, I found this documentary on Dohler, and thought I'd post it here. Some of the movies he directed were The Alien Factor, the sequel, Nightbeast, The Galaxy Invader (also parodied by the RiffTrax crew), Fiend, and others.
Also I found some of his film magazines, Cinemagic, over on the Internet Archive site if you are interested in reading or downloading them. Once you get to the Archive site scroll down to get to them. I barely looked at them, but they looked like they'd have some interesting articles in them if you're interested in special effects, movies, and behind-the-scene stuff. Here's a link for that.
While on the subject of films, I ran across this site that had free movie scripts to read. It's over at SimplyScripts.com so check the link to that. There are a lot of scripts over there to peruse.
