The review of this Movie prepared by Trevor Schmitt

This is an absurd and silly little farce about a 90 pound weakling named Melvin who is the janitor at the Tromaville Health Club, where the local bullies make his life miserable. One day, he is chased out of the club and falls into some conveniently placed toxic waste that transforms him into...THE TOXIC AVENGER! Geek no more, he lives in the junkyard and prepares to take revenge on his former tormentors and right the wrongs in Tromaville, falling in love along the way with a blind girl who can't see how hideous he is.
