Overlooked Crowd Funding: Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 2

"The explosive finale of Lloyd Kaufman’s inspired two-part indie event film"

The long awaited sequel to 2013's Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 1 is finally here! Well, almost. It's up to the loyal Troma fans among you to push this project past the finish line. 
According to the Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 2 kickstarter campaign, the movie has been basically been filmed, all that's left is the post-production bells and whistles, which means sound mixing, editing, special effects - everything that will bring this beast to life. Troma is trying to raise $50,000 in order to get this all done and there are 26 days left to contribute and get some very weird swag in return. 

With Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 2, we will be reunited with Lauren and Chrissy as they take on the evil that is invading their beloved Tromaville and getting ready to spread. Their mission is to stop the global domination of an organic food company CEO gone mad! Mixed in with all of that madness will be some real life themes that the film will address, such as discrimination and bullying. 

Now let's take a look at some of the very Troma rewards you can get by contributing:

  • $20 will get you a digital copy of the script and a thank you in the credits. This may be appealing to aspiring script writers but probably not to the majority of people. At this level, you also get the first reward, which is to be included in a Lloyd Kauffman-read thank you video that will be posted on YouTube. 
Under $100:
  • $50 gets you a region free bluray of Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 2 signed by the father of Troma himself, Lloyd Kauffman. This release is packed with extras, including the making-of documentary. This pack also comes with the script and the recorded thanks.
Breaking the Piggy Bank:
  • $500 sounds a bit high but here's what it can get you: in addition to the signed bluray of the film, an electronic script, and a 30 minute Skype conversation with Lloyd Kauffman, you will also get six full sized movie posters, complete with posters for The Toxic Avenger, Poultrygeist, Citizen Toxie, Class of Nuke 'Em High, Return to Nuke 'Em High Volume 1 and of course Volume 2, all signed by their loving director Lloyd Kauffman. This sounds like the Troma faithful dream pack, or maybe like eBay fodder. Either way, it's very cool if you have the resources. 
Contributions jump up pretty quick after this one, but there are some other tempting ones. A lot of opportunities to meet and talk to Lloyd Kauffman, which could be helpful for film makers or just a cool experience for some fans. These are mostly $1000 and they're still available. For this last section, I have two rewards to tell you about. So it's time for...
Honorable Mentions:
  • For either $5000 or $8000 you could be the proud owner of an original Troma movie prop, in addition to most of the previously mentioned rewards. These are your choices or prop:
Remember, there are 26 days left to help this film get finished. You can see the full list of rewards and more stills from the film at the campaign page
