[EXCLUSIVE CLIP] Troma Is At It Again – This Time They Are Bringing Us SHAKESPEARE’S SH*TSTORM

A studio that we don’t spend near enough time talking about is Troma Entertainment – they have been bringing their one of a kind, over the top, crude style of storytelling to indie movie fans all over the world for as long as this lover of all things bloody and wrong can remember.

Lloyd Kaufman is legend and he is as hilarious as he is controversial – and he keeps pushing the envelope in his latest outing titled Shakespeare’s Sh*tstorm. I promise you – you’ve never seen anything like it.

Kaufman and company sent along an exclusive clip – you ready for this?

The studio explains the film as follows:

“The Opioid Epidemic is destroying America. Legendary director Lloyd Kaufman celebrates Troma’s 45th and his 50th year making movies, by taking on Big Pharma, addiction, and the intolerance of social media in #ShakespearesShitstorm. This irreverent musical adaptation of “The Tempest” is ripe with bawdy couplets, Hieronymus Boschian images of excess, and unrefined iambic pentameter. ̋ #ShakepearesShitstorm marks the most ambitious project in Troma’s 45-year history. Working with one of Hollywood’s best special effects companies, Troma brings a whole new experience to their stylized brand. Having a bigger budget also brought about larger-scale on-location filming in Albania (a first for narrative feature films in the country) as well as a celestial orchestral score from Portugal and a little help from the Bard. Shakespeare has never been this raw and unfiltered.”

Check out this trailer to see Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it performed before.
