    Watched Tromeo last night and thought it wasn't too bad as I'd never seen the film before.

    Does anyone else's deleted scenes play up though? The second one which is a sex scene loops the audio from the first one rather than play the correct track. Once the third starts up there's no problem. It's just that second scene.

    Anyone know if Troma has given up on blu-ray? I remember them saying they would release one title per month. They cancelled Pep Squad and Surf Nazis, I'm guessing these aren't selling well.

    I love my Nuke 'Em High blu-ray, and I was really hoping to see Mother's Day and Toxic Avenger hit the format in the near future.

    I watched Surf Nazis online not long ago and it was really slow and boring. I'm not surprised they cancelled that one.

    Their Tromeo disk has a glitch or two. I was really hoping to see The Toxic Avenger on blu. I hope they release that one.

    Pep Squad was apparently cancelled on Blu-ray, but Surf Nazis looks like it's still due out on 12/28. Or at least Amazon never cancelled my order on that one...yet.

    I had both pre-ordered from DeepDiscount and they were both cancelled.

    Amazon still has the December 28th pre-listing for Surf Nazis Must Die. Only two weeks left.

    Any chance these orders are going to be filled? Come on, Troma! We want more blu-rays! Preferably Mother's Day!

    I'd like to see them release the Toxic Avenger series (I'm surprised the first film wasn't their debut blu release), Troma's War, Sgt. Kabukiman, and Terror Firmer on blu. After that, I'd be pretty set.

    With their recent distributor change, I can't imagine the SURF NAZIS blu actually streeting next week. I'd imagine we'll see a Spring release.

    I was actually very surprised with their CLASS OF NUKE 'EM HIGH blu; what I wouldn't give to see BLOODSUCKING FREAKS treated the same way!

    Yeah, I'm not really expecting it to ship next week. I've had it on pre-order at Amazon forever now, so what's a few more months? :evil:

    I just hope they don't shittify the audio like they did with the Class of Nuke 'Em High Blu. The DVD actually had a far higher bitrate for the audio track believe it or not.

    I'd like to see them bring out Cannibal The Musical, Mother's day & graduation day.

    Surf Nazis isn't cancelled. It's just been pushed due to the distributor change, should arrive early to mid 2011 I'd assume.

    Hopefully we'll see The Toxic Avenger announced for Blu soon! I was completely blown away by the video upgrade on Class of Nuke 'Em High from their DVD (which the VHS I think looks better than). Sure the audio might not have been as loud as it could have been, but still sounds clear, but damn does Nuke 'Em High look glorious in HD and 1.85:1. So I'm waiting for Toxie in HD and widescreen hopefully in 2011.

    I just got an email from Amazon that my old pre-order for Surf Nazis was cancelled. They didn't cancel it after the first couple of release date delays, so it's interesting that they did now.

    Wonder if they'd ever do a widescreen version of GRADUATION DAY ?

    I went ahead and pre-ordered the blu-ray of Mother's Day on amazon. It is currently at full price, but I'm sure it will drop before the release date.

    Mother's Day is my favorite Troma film, I'm really excited to see it hit blu-ray. I'm also very excited to see Troma releasing more blu-rays, I thought that maybe they'd given up on the format.
