THE JAPANESE CUT FINALLY AVAILABLE IN THE USA FOR THE FIRST TIME! LONGER THAN THE US DIRECTORS CUT!!!
“…manically farcical sense of humor…” – Steve Holden, The New York Times
Welcome to Tromaville, New Jersey — a smallll American town, terrorized by criminals. The town’s corrupt mayor sits idly by while muggers, robbers and teenage punks victimize helpless citizens. Among the residents of Tromaville is Melvin, a nerdy, emaciated janitor at the local health club. That is, until he becomes The Toxic Avenger! A gang of thugs devise a cruel hoax that goes horribly wrong as Melvin is cast through a third story window an dinto a vat of hazardous toxic waste. However, an unexpected metamorphosis takes place. As the chemicals take hold of his body, Melvin turns into the Toxic Avenger, doer of good, and brutal mauler of evil! The rest, as they say, is history. The excitement is non-stop as the hero sets out to single handedly wipe out the forces of evil that torment the people of Tromaville. THE TOXIC AVENGER is non-stop entertainment that will leave the viewers glowing from the fun.
An additional four minutes have been added to this version originally cut for the Japanese market.

Fantoxic FRED –
I have watched the original Toxic Avenger over 20 times. When I saw that this was available and saw it at a Troma booth at a convention, I picked it up immediately. I was pleasantly surprised- there is a good amount of additional material. And the intro is hilarious. 10/10 HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR TOXIE FANS!
