Amazing film, terrible DVD
on 28 April 2010
If you're like me and you love bad horror films, then you're almost in the right place.
The Toxic Avenger is one of my favourite films of all time, but this DVD is just awful. The film has been butchered until it's merely a suggestion of what The Toxic Avenger could be. Almost all of the violence has been removed (including a guy being hit in the face with a sandwich) and the editing is terrible.
What you need to do is buy the Troma release:The Toxic Avenger [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Ignore the fact that it says "Region 1", as all Troma DVDs are Region Free.
Do this and you'll be able to see the full uncut version of the film, along with a load of extras that aren't on this UK release.
