The devastating results then have a transmogrification effect, his alter ego is released, and the Toxic Avenger is born, to deadly and comical results. The local mop boy is now the local Superhero, the saviour of corruption, thuggish bullies and indifference. Troma classic with good make-up effects and stunts, a pleasant surprise indeed.
Plot: Tromaville has a monstrous new hero. The Toxic Avenger is born when mop boy Melvin Junko falls into a vat of toxic waste. Now evildoers will have a lot to lose.

A Jersey Classic
Troma Films is legendary in the New York/New Jersey area, where most of their films are shot. (I was on site during the filming of a crowd scene for “Class of Nuke’Em High” in Paramus, New Jersey during the summer of ’85, but to be honest I’ve never been able to find myself on screen in the movie.) The Toxic Avenger is arguably Troma’s most accomplished work, and remains its most famous/popular film. Oddly enough, despite the tasteless humor and constant gross-out scenes in this movie, the title character spawned several sequels (of varying quality) and was eventually re-cast as a kid friendly cartoon character (!) with an environmental message in the late ’80s that resulted in a line of comic books, toys and action figures!! Watching this gutbustingly hilarious 1985 classick (pun intended) now, it’s hard to believe how far “Toxie” came. The Toxic Avenger’s humor is definitely not for everybody, but if you’re from Jersey, you are hereby required to rent it at least once. On a side note, Joe Zarro, who appears in this film as the proprietor of the dry cleaner’s shop, taught English and Film Studies at Paramus High School in the late 1980s. His star turn in “Toxic Avenger” was widely known among the student body, yet he seemed somewhat embarrassed by it and naturally, he wouldn’t even consider screening it for our class. What a shame!!
Top shelf trash
Mark Torgl’s performance as Melvin Junko, a mop jockey at a Tromaville gym for jocks and sluts, is one of cinema’s finest. You can’t better his measured, heartfelt “I don’t smell nothing’!” response to his boss’s “Melvin, clean up those toilets, they stink!” line. This Troma classic, one of their few, is the purest of trash and highly entertaining. After he is humiliated and forced to wear a ballet dress, Melvin plunges from a third floor window into a vat of radioactive slop. When he emerges, he is uglier, stronger and more socially adjusted than he was before. After laying low at the local dump for a while, he re-emerges as “The Toxic Avenger”. The film shows criminals harassing the innocent so Toxie can harass them back. The script is not Pulitzer material. There is a sick joy to be found in the various crime spree scenes. A restaurant robbery, which features the slaughter of a blind girl’s dog and theatrical robbers, is hilarious. There is also a “funny” scene where a young boy is hit by a car that reverses and hits him again and again just to be sure. None of this is serious stuff, but the easily offended will be. Lousy sequels followed, but this is top shelf trash.
