I'd only pick up Troma releases in the UK if they matched the import releases for content. If they weren't going to include at least the same bonus features (although exclusive UK content would be great) then I'd just as soon stick to importing the titles I want, which is easy enough to do. Plus, Troma DVD's are usually (if not always) region 0, so there won't ever be any compatibility issues.

That said, if titles were released over here with all the bonus features intact then I'd definitely be up for expanding my existing collection. I suppose my thoughts on a UK Troma launch are 'only if it's done properly'.

Oh, and Poultrygeist is great fun. Some of the songs are a little too ropey, but otherwise it's exactly the type of thing you'd expect from Troma. It's unlikely to win them many new fans, but if you do like their style of films you're likely to enjoy it.

Yes it was uncut.

It was not shown with the approval of the BBFC though who have so far never seen the film. Decisions to pass or cut films are based on BBFC guidelines and UK law and Blood Sucking Freaks is unlikely to be found acceptable simply because it has been on TV uncut. Likewise the FX channel chose to show the uncut Death Wish 2 several times but it still wouldn't pass uncut today with an 18.

There are so many scenes in Blood Sucking Freaks showing naked women being tortured I think the BBFC would scarcely know where to begin

It's fine to sell stuff like this at the end of the line but if you sell it near the start it would put people off buying any more, you want it to go more.

Hmm, looks interesting, *buys* hmm that was quite good I'll buy another.

rather than

Hmm that title looks irresistible, *buys* hmm that was a big pile of wank, think I'll give the rest a miss.

For me a big draw would be if the set ended up including all the episodes of Troma's Edge TV (only 50% are available at the moment) also I think it'd be good for creating fans of the line and brand.

Also Artwork stuff like this:

Could the British public resist a title such as SURF NAZI'S MUST DIE?

The trailer for Surf Nazis is far better than the movie.

Only Troma could take a skin flick like Honey Britches and market it as a slasher movie under the name Demented Death Farm Massacre
