Dolphinman Battles the Sex Lobsters

An official selection in 33 international film festivals on 6 continents... "Dolphinman Battles the Sex Lobsters!"

It will blowhole you through the back wall of the theater!

In the third short movie directed by John Brennan (The Last Drive-In) to star canonical Troma cast member "Dolphinman," the mammalian super-hero is called upon once again to save Tromaville from a foe, a contagious biological invasion of sexually transmitted crustaceans called "Sex Lobsters"!

When notoriously promiscuous Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. waltzes into the story, it's no surprise that the Sex Lobsters start to spread like wildfire, and everyone in Tromaville is feeling the burn! The romantic bi-sexual aquatic savior Dolphinman returns to Tromaville to fight the lobsters and bring relief from the unbearable itching and burning sensations befallen upon the town like a pat of extra-creamy butter.

Includes a Tromatic all-star lineup of cast members from Troma's past and future: Zac Amico (star of "Return to Nuke 'Em High Vol. 1 & 2), Doug Sakmann (longtime bearer of the Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. mantle), Lloyd Kaufman (President of Troma Entertainment & Creator of The Toxic Avenger), Super Tromette Double Dementia, and introducing Amanda Flowers as the Lobster Queen. Brennan's movie is an inventive look into the Tromaville future while maintaining the mood and themes that surely originate from and define a Tromatic Masterpiece.

FUN FACT: The character of Dolphinman was created by James Gunn (Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy") and Alex Duda (Producer "Talk Soup") at the Cannes Film Festival in the mid-90s.

Short Version: Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD contracts a deadly new STD, The Sex Lobsters, and unknowingly spreads it around Tromaville while visiting the town's best orgy spots. Only Dolphinman can find the cure and save the day!
