On July 28th, Troma will release a limited edition two dvd-set of 1986’s cult item Combat Shock. This will include the original director’s cult American Nightmares and the Troma cut. Never seen it but Michael Weldon’s write up in The Psychotronic Video Guide got my attention. The mention of it being a low budget fusion of Taxi Driver and Eraserhead elsewhere also got me eager to check it out. The trailer though makes me aware that this is for the more adventurous movie viewer. Can’t wait ! There is a lot of attnetion being lavished on this film by Troma. How bad can a movie that was thrown out of fifty film festivals be?
