Enjoyable sequel to The Toxic Avenger.

Toxic Avenger II is the follow up sequel to The Toxic Avenger. Troma received funding from a Japanese investor to help make a sequel about a superhero from New Jersey. After all the filming was completed, Lloyd Kaufman ended up with a three hour picture. Figuring out that you can make two dollars instead of one, Kaufman edited the film into two different movies. The results being Toxic Avenger II and III. The Toxic Avenger II is campier and cheesier than the first film (if that was even possible) and it has more of a comic book feel.

With no more evil left to combat, Melvin is bored with his mundane life. Because of his toxic condition job opportunities are very limited. That's until the evil corporation Apocalypse Inc. moves into Melvin's hometown of Tromaville. Adding to Melvin's personal conflict, word has it that his father is alive and is residing in Japan. Apocalypse, Inc. has started to make life miserable for the good people of Tromaville when Melvin leaves his home town to travel to Japan and visit his father.  What evil plans does Apocalypse Inc. have for Tromaville?  Will Melvin ever find true happiness?  Why does his father live in Japan and how come he left the family when he was a child?  What about his blind girlfriend Claire?  Has the charm of their relationship worn off?  You'll need to check out The Toxic Avenger, Part II to find out.

A fun film for fans of campy horror/action/comedies.
