Troma Releases 150 films to YouTube!

Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here and I'm not going to lie - I feel I'm a little late to the party with this one, but it's too awesome not to spread the word. The badasses over at Techdirt brought my attention the fact that "Uncle Lloyd" and his Troma family have put up an astonishing 150 feature films on their YouTube channel: HERE. Sure, there are folks out there who hate Troma, hate Lloyd, and just... well hate, but for those who dig what the company puts out - now's your time to check out that one title you might not have been able to grab or revisit a favorite. One thing's for sure, Lloyd might seem like a madman (and I think he might just be), but he really, truly does love cinema. I had the good fortune of chatting with Mr. Kaufman way back for POULTRYGEIST. He loves making them, selling them, and empowering you to go out and make your own ("MAKE YOUR OWN DAMN MOVIE") and while I'm not 110% all about every Troma movie, I can truly appreciate what the man's done. He is for the people, by the people and the simple fact that you can go click on over and watch these movies free of charge - Bam, I don't know what more you could ask for.

The man's literally written a book on how anyone with a vision can make their own damn movie. I hear "if only I had XYZ, then I'd be allowed to make my movie" time and time again, but this man is the living embodiment of "Get off your ass and make something." Every saturday I'm able to screen shorts, sometimes with a budget of zip, ziltch, nada, and others with budgets that would blow your mind - but the thing I see all the time is a love of movies and that's exactly what you'll find at Troma's YouTube channel.
