The Ice Bucket Challenge has been gaining a great deal of traction as of late. Viral videos of celebrities showing their support for ALS research have been circulating the web. Some popular names in the horror world have even upped the stakes by opting to have stage blood poured over their heads rather than ice water.

Troma has been around since 1974. It was co-founded by Lloyd Kaufman and his college friend Michael Herz. It is now one of the largest and longest standing independent film studios in the US. Through the Troma brand, we’ve been introduced to a series of cult icons like The Toxic Avenger and Sergeant Kabukiman. Troma has also served as a jumping off point for genre film celebrities and household names alike. Writer/Director James Gunn (Gaurdians of the Galaxy) got his start working with Troma and splatter master Eli Roth began his career acting in Troma pictures.
