From the Press Release
Hold your nose and get those barf bags ready! #ShakespearesShitstorm has its World Premiere at the 2020 virtual edition of the Fantasia International Film Festival on August 29th.
The latest from writer/director Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Tromeo and Juliet, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead) is a tour de force of bad taste as only Troma can make!
Coming 25 years after the release of Tromeo and Juliet, Lloyd Kaufman and the Troma Team are going “back to the Bard” with the best interpretation – so far – of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest.
Prospero (played by director/co-writer Kaufman), a brilliant and generous pharma-scientist, has had his life and career ruined by blind, greedy, perverted pharmaceutical execs, causing him and his very hot daughter Miranda to flee from NYC to Tromaville, New Jersey. When the evil execs and their elite guests take a celebratory luxury cruise to North Korea, Prospero uses his science, magic, and a load of whale laxative to create the titular Shitstorm, wrecking the cruise ship and causing its execs to wash up on the shores of Tromaville.
Prospero’s planned a brutal revenge – with all the sex, mutations, musical numbers, and violence that Shakespeare always wanted but never had!
