Troma Entertainment: 150 free films on YouTube

Legendary psychotronic film studio Troma Entertainment, maker of such cinematic masterpieces as The Toxic Avenger, Class of Nuke'em High, and Redneck Zombies, has put 150 movies (including some classics that it distributes) on YouTube for free viewing. Above is the 1932 film White Zombie, starring Bela Lugosi. It's considered to be the first zombie film ever. There goes the weekend. Tromamovies (via Techdirt)


  1. I can vouch for The Stabilizer being great fun. I also enjoyed The Children. At least it’s a three day weekend!

    1.  Many are. Check out the Rod Serling movie “Patterns”, either on YouTube or IA. It is little known now, but I think it won Serling his first Emmy (it was a teleplay first). More in the class of “Requiem for a Heavyweight” than of  The Twilight Zone.

    1. The hard-working lawyers and lobbyists at Disney have spent a staggering amount of time and money to ensure that virtually no films from 1928 onward will ever fall into public domain. (Hint: that year saw the screen premiere of a certain round-eared rodent.)

  2.  I wish someone would make a new voodoo-zombie film, instead of cranking out another reanimated-corpse flick.

    1. I don’t think Troma would do this if they didn’t have the rights, and these don’t look like good targets for a troll.  I think this is a great gift to humanity.  I went back last night and reviewed some old favorites!

      1. It looks official to me, plus IIRC youtube would notice copyrighted +60 minute videos pretty quick, if they were uploadable at all. Troma doesn’t want takedown orders, they want merchandise orders. Kaufman’s gotta eat!

        1. does it really matter if they have all the rights – certainly has not stopped the DCMA takedowns in the past
