HONKY HOLOCAUST REVIEWED
“Honky Holocaust” opens on an alternate timeline where Charles Manson has started a race war. But, white people lost and now the African Americans are in charge. If you ever wondered who will live during the Honky Holocaust, Troma is here to answer that question. Playing darker and as violent as classic Troma, this film feels like a return-to-form for the slimiest studio around. If you’re a fan, check out the documentary in the special features. Given the nature of recent events, this film might feel a little too dark for some.
However, I can’t help but chuckle over the timing. While it plays longer for a recent Troma film, it moves at a rapid pace. If you’ve got a gathering of movie nerds, pick it up and slip it into the rotation. This film might play a bit better with an open crowd caught by surprise.

The Plot Thus Far
A few times each century, humanity dodges an apocalyptic bullet and in 1969 that bullet was Charles Manson. But in Honky Holocaust’s alternate universe, the Manson Family succeeds in igniting the apocalyptic race war and attempt to claim their ‘rightful’ place as the rulers of the world. The infamous cult instead finds that the outcome of Helter Skelter is drastically different than was prophesied and are forced to confront their perversely racist background or perish defending it!
