According to Singer, Tales from the Crapper came about when a producer who was given money to make two feature-length Troma films came back with two completely unrelated – and, needless to say, absolutely terrible – forty-minute short films. The only thing they had in common was that adult film actress Julie Strain (star of 2001’s Sex Court: The Movie) was in both, and for Troma, that was enough of a reason to stitch them together as a 98-minute anthology hosted by studio co-founder Lloyd Kaufman. And what’s more, even the staff at Troma realized how thoroughly unwatchable the movies were, so the combination into one film was accompanied by production staff and interns overdubbing the soundtracks with new voices and other dubious “improvements.”
More than anything else, that’s what piqued my interest: A movie so bad that even Troma thought it was abysmal? This, I had to see.
Like I said, this one ended up being huge, with so many screenshots of the alarmingly star-studded cast that it had to be broken up over four pages. Essentially, it’s the Worst of Netflix Season Finale: A movie so unbelievably bad that I’m taking next week off to recover.
So enjoy it! Lord knows I didn’t!
