Frightpix, a free horror streaming app, is launching a selection of films curated by filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman, who is also the president of Troma Entertainment, the oldest independent movie studio in the world. The selection, titled “Lloyd Kaufman Presents,” is made up 20 of Kaufman’s favorite horror films available for free streaming on Frightpix on Roku, Xbox 360, mobile devices and the web.
Known for gory horror films rife with political commentary, Kaufman’s classics include “The Toxic Avenger,” “Class of Nuke ‘Em High” and, most recently, “Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 1 & 2.” The curated series includes five films by Troma Entertainment, as well as 15 more of Kaufman’s favorite horror films. Each of the movies is prefaced by a personal video introduction given by Kaufman and “Toxie,” the director’s most famous monster.
“We are extremely happy to provide a platform for Lloyd to introduce his personal favorite Frightpix films,” says David Fannon, Executive Vice President at Frightpix. “He brings a very critical, unique perspective to the horror genre. With his strong roots in independent cinema and gore horror, Lloyd is a perfect fit for Frightpix.”
The genre will also have a limited run on Popcornflix, the free movie and TV streaming app affiliated with Frightpix.
