Troma Entertainment has purchased ‘Friend of the World,’ which is now available on the Troma Now app as of April 1st.
“The first draft was written in August 2016, amidst a US presidential election even more controversial than usual, a growing fear of global war, and a burgeoning cynicism in America that was spreading like wildfire. All of this informed a script that was originally coming from a personal place of fear and isolation. Global drama aside, this project is intended first and foremost as entertainment: a presumably good character we can identify with up against an unstoppable monster who represents everything that scares and infuriates us. It is a tribute to and expansion of themes from the body horror sub-genre of sci-fi and horror.” – Brian Patrick Butler
