Performers, Cast and Crew:
New York Times - 04/04/1986
"...A maniacally farcical sense of humor..."
Variety - 05/22/1985
"...This madcap spoof on THE HULK has plenty of ingredients that could make it a winner....An outlandish mix of gory violence and realistic special effects..."
A 98-pound weakling falls into a barrel of toxic waste and is transformed into a towering hulk of sludge wearing a tutu. At times very gross, the film has developed a cult following.
One moment Melvin's a 90 pound weakling, and the next -- with a little help from some toxic waste -- he's THE TOXIC AVENGER! Now Melvin's in shape to get back at all the creeps who have ever tormented him. So those bad guys had better watch out... because Melvin's got superpowers beyond their imagination.
