Lloyd Kaufman Brings His Latest Cult Horror Movie to Film Noir Cinema

Get ready to scream: a new splatter film is coming to Film Noir Cinema (122 Meserole Avenue) from April 26 to May 2.

Film Noir will host the New York premiere of Lloyd Kauffman’s latest film, Return to Return to Nuke ‘Em High aka Volume 2the sequel to his campy cult classic Return to Nuke ‘Em High Volume 1.

Kauffman is most well-known for The Toxic Avenger and Tromeo and Juliet, and his new film is the final chapter of the epic Class of Nuke ‘Em High series. In the Volume 2, Lauren and Chrissy, two lesbian lovers, must face and defeat the most corrupt and evil forces ever to descend upon Tromaville, and the world.

The original Class of Nuke ‘Em High opened in New York City and major markets in the 1980s and is considered an independent classic. Director Lloyd Kaufman is bringing Troma’s lesbian love story back to his hometown, where he has made feature-length movies for 50 years, 45 of them with Troma, his filmmaking company.

Kaufman will be in attendance the three nights for a Q&A. The feature runs 85 minutes and tickets are $15 each. Catch the gore, destruction, and oozy goodness in Volume 2’s epic trailer.
