“I Need You Dead!” Hits Streaming And NYC This Weekend

Tuesday, November 23, 2021 | News

After a moment of total teenage angst, a young punk finds himself at odds with a psychedelic monster of his own creation in I NEED YOU DEAD!, the new film from Troma alum and writer/director Rocko Zevenbergen and The Bad Taste Video Team.

A “punk rock, drug-fueled love letter to Henenlotter,” I NEED YOU DEAD! stars Estevan Muñoz (Zombie Cats From Mars), Sean Abplanalp (Happy Birthday, Carol), Ada Hurtado (The Deliverance of Amy Stronghold), and Lloyd Kaufman, himself.

I NEED YOU DEAD! is available now on Apple TV, Google Play, Amazon Fire TV & Roku. The film is also having its NYC premiere this weekend at Brooklyn’s Film Noir Cinema on 11/27 and 28. Both screenings feature a Q&A with cast and crew, with special guest Lloyd Kaufman in attendance on Saturday. Tickets available here.
