Codebreaker

Freebie movies

Marc Sanchez Aug 31, 2012

Oh, I mean free B-movies.

Troma Entertainment, the company responsible for classics like “Zombie Werewolves Attack!” and the less familiar, “Rock n’ Roll Space Patrol” has just uploaded 150 of its b-movies to YouTube. Break out the hot-buttered popcorn, it’s going to be a long weekend. The website Tech Dirt was tipped off to this treasure trove of schmaltz by Lloyd Kaufman, the company’s founder and film director.

Kaufman has shown himself to be a filmmaker who truly understands how the internet can help him, rather than be something worth fearing, so it’s great to see him fully embrace a platform like YouTube to distribute his flicks, and to not freak out about the fact that people can watch stuff for free (actually, to encourage people to watch stuff for free).

If you’re going to complain Troma’s, arguably, most popular title, “The Toxic Avenger” didn’t make the list, save your breath and watch THE 150 FREE MOVIES it already made available to you.
Pretty sure Mother will enjoy this…
