Another Musical Based On A Horror Movie: THE TOXIC AVENGER: THE MUSICAL!


My brother sent me an email the other day asking me if I had heard they made a musical out of THE TOXIC AVENGER! I had not heard about it, so I went to check it out and it looks awesome! (Check a few posts down for the similar EVIL DEAD: THE MUSICAL info). For those that don't know, THE TOXIC AVENGER was a move that came out back in 1984. Produced by Troma Films, it became their post popular film and spawned 3 sequels! The basic story is about a nerdy kid named Melvin who is a janitor at a popular health club. He is always getting picked on by bullies and teased by the ladies. One day he has a tragic accident with a vat of toxic waste which transforms him into the hulk-like character, The Toxic Avenger, or Toxie as his friends know him. Armed with his trusty Janitor's Mop, he vows to "clean up" the town and get revenge on all the guys that pushed him around. Of course, being a Troma film, it is loaded with comedy and sight gags along with a healthy dose of horror and gore effects. It is a great film and I bet this musical would be a blast to see!

  1. well almost any horror movie can be used to make a musical, inclusive Hollywood used Jesus Christ history to make a musical and it was a total success, maybe this is the best example of this.
