Lloyd Kaufman Interview - #ShakespearesShitstorm, Troma, The Toxic Avenger

NHE host Scott Murphy chats to writer/director, Troma co-founder and all round indie filmmaking legend Lloyd Kaufman about his latest film “#ShakespearesShitstorm.” An adaptation of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” done in Troma’s inimitable style.

In the interview (the interview begins at 2:11), we talk to Lloyd about why he wanted to tackle “The Tempest,” how the production came to shoot part of the film in Albania and why this maybe his final film as a director (although possibly not). Also, he talks about the main themes of the movie, why he prefers to work alongside young people and he tells us how this shoot was relatively less stressful than some other Troma shoot.

Elsewhere in the interview Lloyd tells us about his filmmaking philosophy, some of the projects Troma are currently producing and the latest news on the Macon Blair helmed “Toxic Avenger” remake. Plus Lloyd gives his uncensored candid takes on a variety of other topics from Sundance to Cannes to mainstream film critics to cancel culture and much more (*fingers crossed* none of which get us sued!)
