Flicks: Surf Nazis Must Die! (1987)

Surf Nazis Must Die! (1987)
Nazis boldly unveil their terrifying mastery of propaganda in Surf Nazis Must Die!

Troma, Lloyd Kaufman's infamous production company whose Toxic Avenger series made it synonymous with campy B movies, released this deranged, tasteless and deliberately stupid tale of Surfin' and Seig Heilin' set in the not-too-distant future on a radically changed southern California coast.

Axis powers do battle as Herr Hook prepares to gut the competition in Surf Nazis Must Die!

Rival gangs, the Samurai Surfers and the Surf Nazis, wage a turf war in a post-apocayptic California on the beach. Adolf, Eva, Mengele, Hook and Smeg face down Leroy's Mama, "Mama" Washington (Gail Neely). Seeking revenge for the murder of her son Mama Washington, after arming herself properly with a handgun and grenades, breaks out of the retirement home and sets out to exact bloody vengeance upon the evil Surf Nazis. The stuff hits the fan when Mama Washington tracks down the killers of her son in Surf Nazi's Must Die!

Burning hatred is always at the height of fashion in Surf Nazis Must Die!

This is among the first of infamous modern b-movie filmmaker Lloyd Kaufman's, the founder and president of Troma Pictures, movies. His company bears the dubious distinction of releasing the Toxic Avenger series, Tromeo and Juliet, Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D and Poultrygeist upon an unwary world. Troma is still alive and very well - usually with one of the best stocked, best attended tables at any horror con in the Midwest.
