He Was 98 LBS. of Solid Nerd Until he Became… The Toxic Avenger

The First Superhero From New Jersey!

What’s faster than a spreading germ… more powerful than Mr. Clean… and more lethal than nuclear waste? Is it a floor-cleaner? Is it a waste site? No… it is the TOXIC AVENGER, the first super hero from New Jersey! He french fries his foes… dry cleans the dastardly.

Watch out, bad guys! Truth, Justice and The American Way is on a righteous rampage–it’s Melvin, alias THE TOXIC AVENGER, and he’s gonna getcha!

Transformed from wimp to warrior by a dip in a chemical pool, Melvin (“Tox” to his friends) battles corruption and crime in a small American town. But can even an industrial-strength super-hero survive a showdown against an army of tanks and troops? Thrill to the action, adventure and yes, romance, of this hilarious tongue-in-cheek hit.

WARNING: Explosively funny. May cause irritation to the excessively serious.

In nature, a snake cannot have legs. In show biz, an act that’s enduringly popular has legs. Monty Python’s got ’em. However, the lads do remind you that it’s impolite to stare.

Murder. Scandal. Crime. No matter what he was hooting, “The Great Bernzini” never took sides, he only took pictures… Except one.

Academy Award winner Joe Pesci is a brash, 1940’s tabloid photographer whose camera leads him into a shadowy underworld of mob violence, unlikely romance and dangerous corruption in this atmospheric mystery-thriller.

New York, 1942. Prowling the crime-ridden, midnight streets of the city, freelance shutterbug Leon “Bernzy” Bernstein (Pesci) captures life’s seamy side in his lens — and dreams of the day his pictures will be recognized as works of art. Then, ravishing nightclub owner Kay Levitz (Barbara Hershey) lures Bernzy into investigating the thugs trying to muscle in on her business. Before he knows it, he falls for the unattainable Kay — and plunges camera first into a treacherous realm of black market scams and mafia gang war. Now, Bernzy’s either going to take the fall or take the one-in-a-million shot that could change his life forever.
