Dynamite Comics releases an artbook of some of the old illustrations from the old school horror movies of Troma.

Now, I’m gonna be honest with you. I’ve never seen an actual mature horror movie ever in my life. Surely I just only watched the mild ones on my teenage years, but somehow I’ve never been that so eager to watch any horror films, which can be scary as fuck. Nowadays, this art book is actually disturbing and somewhat causes trauma to the children while watching these kinds of films, so I’ll advise you to keep this book to yourself and not show it to your kids once they’re old enough, like 18 years and older.

What I find about this Troma movies is more than just a snuff film, but it also contains graphic violence and something filthy. Well, I wouldn’t want to go back reading any other filthy mangas from Japan, so we’re good. The artbook shows an interesting documentary and illustrations for the movie poster trailers like “The First Turn-On”, “Bloodsucking Freaks”, “Squeeze Play” and more. There’s just a lot of horror and sexual content, and graphic violence, and it just only the beginning of this book of sins. If Cinemasins would start going around with one of these movies, I would LOVE to see how they sin one of these Troma films in this year’s Halloween!

So all these movie clip shows and illustrations made us think that this would be the best fit for Halloween, but it’s also the most disturbing films in history. Besides killing zombies, we get some of these snuff films which is much more sadistic ever seen. But, Troma introduced another Troma film which was amazing called “The Toxic Avenger” by Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, I’ve heard of this film before right on the trailers, but I didn’t watch the whole thing. That movie was awesome even it transformed this thing into a children’s Saturday cartoon, he may be a monster, but he’s also a hero who fights for the innocent. When I looked at him, I just knew that he was thrown into toxic transforming into some loser to a monster, and thought that it would look like Wade Wilson from Deadpool or Nijimura’s father from JoJo. Then again they didn’t contain some toxic experiments to transformed into a rotten avocado freaks, but Okuyasu’s father he didn’t get DNA experiments or anything, he just sold his soul to a vampire called DIO and planted a flesh bud to his brain, and turned into a freak after that vampire died. But it’s a decent movie to watch, but the other films are sick as hell that you’ll puke until your guts come out of your stomach. If you rather want another art book to add it to your collection, then this art book is just for you.
