Title-Ation

Crazy Troma film titles -- ''The Toxic Avenger'' is only the beginning

A typical no-budget film from Troma, Inc., which made its name with 1985's The Toxic Avenger and its '89 sequel, may never be the talk of Cannes or the buzz at the Academy; it might never even play at a theater near you. But for sheer title pleasure, nothing comes close to the company's fare. The latest crop:

Chopper Chicks in Zombietown

Class of Nuke 'Em High Part II:Subhumanoid Meltdown

Dead Dudes in the House

They Call Me Macho Woman

A Nymphoid Barbarian in Dinosaur Hell
