Review: “Tromeo and Juliet” (1997), dir. Lloyd Kaufman

Tromeo and Juliet is a schlock horror adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet that, in its own distasteful way, possesses much more charm and intelligence than one might expect from a film which transforms Juliet into a cow-monster. In this review, I sift through the grotesque humour and terrible jokes in order to uncover some interesting new perspectives on a well-studied tragedy.
