Founder of Troma, the B-movie studio committed to making the opposite of slick, Hollywood movies.
The Toxic Avenger (1985) -- Directed with Michael Herz. I don't exactly like this movie, but I have a certain stupid appreciation for it as well as Lloyd Kaufman and his film studio Troma, one of the first to take cheesy, stupid, gross B-movies this seriously... and not seriously. It created its own world (Tromaville, New Jersey) and rules and sticks with them for this movie and all Troma movies beyond. (Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz also direct the sequel, The Toxic Avenger, Part 2.)
