Rating: 2.5/4 -- The Toxic Avenger is an incredibly bizarre flick, combining silly jokes with outrageous gore, but it works. Full Review

The humor is not merely sophomoric and silly, it's aggressively so, and the bargain basement gore effects are over-the-top and excessive. Full Review

The Toxic Avenger tells the humorous story of a geeky weakling who is turned into a superhero when he is slimed by some toxic waste. Full Review

Rating: B -- Still manages to trigger disgust and a handful of laughs, representing not only a key Troma financial victory, but it's quite possibly their finest original work. Full Review

...A maniacally farcical sense of humor...
New York Times

here, beneath all the smiles and sun and buff bodies, is a vision of the US as a place of corruption, pollution, and violent criminality, with the ordinary law-abiding "little people" constantly at the mercy of a toxic American Dream. Full Review

Description by

15 years after its theatrical release, The Toxic Avenger has become one of the most popular and recognizable superhuman heroes in film history. He is America's favorite hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength. An unprecedented success, The Toxic Avenger spawned two sequels, an animated television series, "Toxic Crusaders," and a full line of Tromatic merchandise. Join Toxie as he crushes heads, rips off arms, and takes women to that very special toxic climax.

Product Description:

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.

Plot Synopsis:

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.
