TROMA NIGHT at the WAY OUT CLUB March 16th LOLLILOVE and TERROR FIRMER
Two very different movies from the crazies at Troma Studios will screen Friday night March 16th at The Way Out Club as part of our third monthly TROMA NIGHT AT THE WAY OUT CLUB. We’ve decided to move it back to Friday night and we’ve got a great FREE double feature.
“Saving the world, one sucker at a time”
First up this month is LOLLILOVE, a riotous 2004 mock documentary about charity and the homeless directed by and starring St. Louis’ own Jenna Fischer (from The Office) and produced by and costarring her then-husband and fellow St. Louisan James Gunn. Fisher and Gunn play well-meaning Hollywood rich kids who decide to prop up the homeless by handing hobos and drunken derelicts lollypops. Not just any suckers, but ones with designer inspirational wrappers. LolliLove is a bit of an odd release for Troma, because it’s not a blood, boob, and bodily fluids- fest, but it’s plenty dark, witty, and wise nonetheless.
“You killed my daddy, you maniacal, media-manipulated, homicidal, hermaphrodite freak of nature!”
For those looking for Troma’s more traditional brand of madness (sleaze, nudity, decapitations, naked starlets, booze, and exploding bodies), we’re more than making up for it with our second feature TERROR FIRMER, the studio’s most twisted, yet acclaimed, movie. A mysterious woman rips off a man’s leg and beats him to death with it as his blood gushes onto the street — she then walks up to a pregnant sunbather and tears a baby from her womb with her bare hands. And this all happens in the first two minutes of TERROR FIRMER, an entertaining and ultra-violent horror comedy satire based on Lloyd Kaufman’s book ” All i need to know about film-making i learned from The Toxic Avenger” It has that movie-within-a-movie-about-a-movie like thing telling the story of a homicidal maniac on the loose and the low budget film crew on a Troma movie that has the power to stop him. TERROR FIRMER is the sickest, most disgusting, gratuitously-vulgar, stomach-turning, grossly-offensive movie from the proud folks at Troma and you can see it in the appropriately characteristic confines of The Way Out Club on March 16th !

The show starts at 8:30pm on Friday, March 16th so join us for bad films, good films, good people, gory films, Movie trivia with door prizes, lots of cold beer and drinks, and yummy Way Out pizzas available for only $8.
