Redneck Zombies once turned up on C4 in an extremely cut version, which was a surprise as I don't think the BBFC have even seen it.

Like Toxic Avenger, Rabid Grannies has only been available here in a cut version.

Bravo used to show a version of The Toxic Avenger made up of the deleted scenes, which leaves out most of the gore and has some of the characters who died during the movie turn up slightly harmed but alive (a la Gremlins 2) at the end of the film.

A depressing film but well worth watching.

Anyone know if its available in the UK.?
Gonna watch this soon Vip's,take it it's a cut above the usual Troma fare then?

Rabid Grannies,-now there's a classy piece of cinema Angel!

Although it is complete trash, Redneck Zombie's is a really good fun film to watch. I believe it's one of the many Troma films that they didn't make themselves and just released on the Troma label. I shall be getting the R1 i think as the only version ive got is just downloaded off the net, albeit uncut.
Worth watching for the Acid trip autopsy scene alone!

Interesting little thread this - I've been putting off a client re-launching Troma in the UK. Not forever or anything but historically sales were horrible on VHS (mind you they were yup cut and rather horrible tapes) and how does everyone feel their films have stood the test of time? Let me know and if you're good I'll bring Troma back.

I think Troma has a HUGE underground following Almar. The likes of Horror Fanatics, Fangoria etc seemed to love Poultrygeist. So maybe a Troma revival is in order!
I think the main off-putting factor is that Troma movies are bvery hit and miss.
For all the good ones, theres twice as many stinkers.
Maybe just a 'Troma Classics' collection featuring the move obvious choices.
I.E;

Sgt Kabukiman NYPD
Toxic Avenger 1-4
Class of Nuk'em High
Rabid Grannies
Redneck Zombies etc etc

I for one would buy these if they were re-released in uncut versions.

Wasn't Rabid Grannies just a film they packaged up? used to have the Virgin big box about that one - it was always a favourite of guests to pull out and go RABID GRANNIES???? How disgusting etc...

Toxic Avenger, Almar. A timeless classic.

It would be great to see this uncut over here for the first time. And it would definitely pass as well

I think ALL of Troma's films would pass uncut now Almar,which,I reckon would make all the difference from the cut VHS days....
