B-Movie Legends Troma Entertainment Releases 150 Films On YouTube

from the watch-and-enjoy dept

Troma Entertainment is a giant in the B-movie world, creating and releasing tons of movies, including its most famous film, The Toxic Avenger. Company founder and film director Lloyd Kaufman (who has written a guest post for us in the past), recently alerted us to the fact that Troma has recently released 150 of its movies for free on YouTube, including some older films which they just distribute.

So, if you want to watch the 1952 classic, Abbot and Costello: Jack and the Beanstalk, or Bela Lugosi in The Corpse Vanishes or The Invisible Ghost you can. Or you can go for more modern fare like Zombie Werewolves Attack! and Blood, Boobs & Beast... starring JJ Abrams (in case you're wondering, that's actually a documentary about Don Dohler, another B-movie creator).

And because I can, I'll embed that last one here:
Kaufman has shown himself to be a filmmaker who truly understands how the internet can help him, rather than be something worth fearing, so it's great to see him fully embrace a platform like YouTube to distribute his flicks, and to not freak out about the fact that people can watch stuff for free (actually, to encourage people to watch stuff for free).

    Mike Mansick my dear friend, I think it be time we had a chat. With all due redpect, find your approach to dealing with the AC trolls a bit too much for them to read. When I've dealt with mine, I found that when I did the method of individually pick out the gaps in logic and countering with paragraph long retorts, they just came back in force as this one has done.

    Easiest way to explain it is that you have to gather your cool, find the biggest thing that they missed and exploit it in very few words.
    Certain things will shut them up. You just have to analyze what it is that makes this troll tick. Be blunt, be prestigious and to the point.

    Name calling never works at all, so outside the label troll, use nothing else.

    The best way to defeat a troll is to troll him back kindly (though bending that rule a bit applies in extreme situations methinks).

    Good luck Mike, and if you want to, check out my profile for examples of de-trolling a troll.
