Troma Entertainment has acquired the worldwide rights for Drew Bolduc and Dan Nelson’s The Taint.
Like all Troma films, The Taint touches on searing sociopolitical themes, in this case misogyny, which is ingrained in American society. The evils of our Viagra and pharmaceutical fueled male population are lambasted and satirized in the film.
The plot? The water is tainted. The Taint poisons the minds of men. It turns them into raging misogynists. When society is transformed into a land of sadistic violence and horrible brutality, it is up to Phil O?Ginny and his female friend, Misandra, to combat the horrible evil that is The Taint.
President of Troma Entertainment and Creator of The Toxic Avenger, Lloyd Kaufman, when asked to describe The Taint, replied: “I cannot exactly describe what happened in The Taint because it would not be appropriate for a normal publication or television review. However, I can tell you that it will be a long time before I even consider placing a penis in my mouth again.”
And there you have it, folks.
The Taint will begin screening in select theatres this spring.
