Is there any reason to believe these are worth owning at all on blu-ray? Didn't Kaufman film these in VHS or Beta or something along those lines?

Is there an error somewhere? I see a San Antonio Spurs player on the cover art.

I got the 88 Films UK blu-ray release of the first Toxic Avenger movie. It's a pretty decent release. Probably as good as the movie will ever look and sound. Great set of extras too. And apparently this release is better than Troma's US release. The 88 Films blu-ray looks better and has a lossless audio track as well. Can't comment on the sequels though.

The Toxic Avengers films were all shot on 35mm. Although Kaufman's biggest market was the VHS rental market, these films did (and still do) get theatrical screenings.

I don't have these movies on any other format, so I'll probably pick up the blurays as long as they contain the correct cuts of the films.

Just a heads up if you're interested, the 88 Films Toxic Avenger blu-ray also contains the Japanese Cut of the film in standard definition.
