Troma Entertainment has announced the release of some new films on Blu-ray and DVD. Also going on now at Troma Direct they are having their holiday sale. Not only can you find the new stuff but some rare and hard to find items. Be sure to take a look and check out the Troma New Releases below.
For those unfamiliar with Troma, I decided to ask our TNM writers for a description.
Alex: “Always crude and absurd. Once a source of fresh and entertaining low-budget flicks, now a staple in the style they helped define.”
Dustin: “Just like Disney but better for the kids.”
Seth: “Always interesting, usually absurd, rarely disappointing. Troma makes films that appeal to base instincts, but they’re fun.”

The Thingy: Confessions of a Teenage Placenta

Marianne decides to raise her placenta as a normal human being; as a young man named Luke. Behind his monstrous facade, there reveals a person of intelligence, faith and sensitivity. Luke struggles for his place in a world of drunks, junkies, whores and bodybuilders. An insane world that treats him as a freak. As this hostile society pushes him towards the edge, Luke has to choose between holding on to his gentle ideals or becoming the merciless soldier his mother always wanted him to be. Troma Amazon
