Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volume 2 is the explosive finale of Lloyd Kaufman’s inspired two-part indie event film. The movie is nearly complete, but we need your help to finish the greatest movie in Troma’s 40 year history.
Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volume 2 is the continuation of the compelling adventure of Lauren and Chrissy, two lesbian lovers who must face and defeat the most corrupt and evil forces ever to descend upon Tromaville…and the world!
When a perverse conspiracy is launched by the demented CEO of a multi-national “organic food” company, our heroines become embroiled in a death defying fight to restore their own humanity, while at the same time saving the entire world from enslavement and the apocalypse.
Contribute and join the fight against insidious elements of our society: discrimination against the LGBTQ community, rampant bullying in the hallways of our educational institutions, and the never-ending battle against pollutants, genetic modification, and the destruction of our environment. Return to Nuke 'Em High: Volume 2 also happens to be the best movie to spring from the loins of Troma Entertainment since The Toxic Avenger!
Directed by Lloyd Kaufman, creator and director of the inspiring Toxic Avenger franchise, Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volume 2 pioneers new vistas in independent filmmaking while also paying tribute to the beloved sexy, gory, and irreverent films of the 1980s.
Principal photography has wrapped and we’ve assembled a working cut of the film we know the world will love. We’ve keep costs down (our entire budget less than 1% of your typical Hollywood movie) but we are now faced with the final hurdle. All that remains are the post production costs: sound mixing, color correction, editing, special effects, mastering, etc. Your generous support will get our movie completed and enjoyed by film fans all over the world!
Goal: $50,000 – Feature film completed and released in time for the Toronto International Film Festival, with a fail-safe wide release January 2016.
Stretch Goal: In the event that your support exceeds our post-production expenses, every dollar donated over our $50,000 mark will go towards distributing this film in theaters as widely as possible. Want to see Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volume 2 playing on screens nation-wide and all over the world? Please donate today!
We’ve put together a great list of exclusive premiums for our fans and backers. In addition to Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volume 2 Blu-rays and posters, we’re offering valuable one-of-a-kind props from the movie, a weekend visit at Lloyd Kaufman’s crib, and even prestigious credits in the finished film!

Risks and challenges
This is Troma’s most ambitious effort ever. The good news is that principle photography, the hardest part of narrative filmmaking, is already complete! The risk now is that the post production may take longer than anticipated. Filmmaking, as it the case with all creative ventures, can take time. However, having done this for 40 years, we are confident we can wrap this film with your support. If we don’t meet our Toronto deadline, we will continue to work toward a January 2016 theatrical release.
We hope you, the fans, are as excited to see our film finished as we are. Please, help us get "Return to Nuke ‘Em High: Volume 2" released!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
