Purveyors of the wacky, the weird, and the rank, Troma is famous for making repugnant masterpieces such as The Toxic Avenger, Tromeo and Juliet, and Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead. They are also distributors of some of the most insane, disgusting, and all-around nasty underground indie and exploitation films around the world. With a 40-year history, Troma Entertainment bills itself as the longest running independent movie studio in North America with a library of nearly a thousand films, cartoons, and TV shows — all the way from teenage sex romps to gory murderfests.
And if that wasn't enough, Troma has launched the careers of Hollywood power players such as James Gunn and J.J. Abrams, and spit in the face of censorship with edgy content. Troma films have featured everything from talking wang monsters to rabid grannies. Taken from their impressive library of disgusting films, here are some of the goriest, lewdest, and generally most WTF Troma movies. These are the ones that would make even Troma's colorful co-founder Lloyd Kaufman blush.

Bloodsucking Freaks truly has everything you could ask for in a Troma movie. Torture and murder? Check. Dismemberment and decapitation? Check. Cannibalism? Check. In one memorable scene, a girl trapped in a guillotine is forced to hold the rope with her teeth and is tickled until she laughs and decapitates herself. Then, a black little person desicrates her severed head. But that's not all; Bloodsucking Freaks is replete with classy lines like these: "Her mouth shall make an interesting urinal!"Is this nasty?

Depicting scenes of violent brutality, The Taint is Troma's answer to the question, "What happens when tainted water turns men into raging misogynists?" According to Troma's website: "It features sadistic violence, gratuitous sexual content, and scenes of spellbinding dramatic interest. It also contains more c*ck explosions than any other movie ever." And that's straight from the horse's mouth.Is this nasty?

Combat Shock is a disturbing film about a traumatized war veteran named Frankie readjusting to civilian life after fighting in Vietnam. Perhaps the most shocking element of Combat Shock is Frankie's mutant baby (portrayed by a puppet), deformed from Frankie's exposure to chemical warfare. As if that wasn't nasty enough, the movie ends with Frankie shooting his baby and cooking it in the oven before drinking rancid milk and shooting himself. Real fun for the whole family.Is this nasty?

Terror Firmer is a satirical look at the making of a Troma movie, with just as much gratuitous, uh, everything as you'd expect. Lloyd Kaufman, playing the role of a blind director, says it best in the above trailer after giving a rousing inspirational speech to his crew: "Now where are the big-titted women at?"
Just to scratch the surface of Terror Firmer, a woman gets hit in the face by an amputated leg, causing her nose to swell up to Pinocchio-esque proportions, a fat man runs naked through the streets of New York and blows up in a car explosion, a guy gets tipped in a Porta-Potty and covered in feces (only to have someone perform CPR on him ), and a sexually-confused serial killer is covered in gasoline and ignited by a lighter and a fart.Is this nasty?
