We live in an age that recycling is encouraged for everything. Sadly this recycle craze has spilled over into cinema as well. About every ten years it seems theaters are packed with recycled and rebooted material and not all of them are diamonds. Inglorious Basterds was one exception but sadly Tarantino can't do them all.

The Toxic Avenger is a story about a man who falls into a vat of waste and turns into a benevolent monster. The plot line should speak for itself.
