Surf Nazis Must Die (1987) - 1987 MEDIA Home Entertainment VHS

.
One day I'll actually watch this. Every now and again I get the itch but then while digging around for thoughts I become reluctant. The cover's probably the best aspect and Troma's initial videos distributed through MEDIA possessed the best artwork before Troma sucked the fun out of their own later video covers. It's hard to see from the scan, but the front sticker says "ACH TUNG 100% GRADE-A TROMA! Details on Surf Nazi Shirt offer follow movie!" I guess that was a way of providing incentive to stick with the movie to its conclusion. Also the cassette's labels are hot neon orange (see BoGD's official Facebook page for photo!)

I say watch it. You just talked about watching it... I mean, why the hell wouldn't you watch a movie that's listed as CULT HORROR COMEDY ACTION SCI-FI on the spine!?

WHY!?

'nuff sed, bro.

Plus, anything set at the beach is sure to be ultra-Sexay. Muff said.

Granted, I haven't watched this in eons, but I remember the best thing being the title. Compared to some of Troma's good output, like CLASS OF NUKE'EM HIGH and later on, TERROR FIRMER, it's actually kind of boring.

I had a lot of fun with this one, and it's probably time I watched it again, so you'd do well to watch it once. And that cover is great. I just have the DVD, which has parts of that cover, but not all of it.

One of the best titles ever.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
