Class of Nuke ‘Em High Part II Plot Summary
The town of Tromaville, first introduced in the previous film, has re-engineered the nuclear reactor that caused the first meltdown which irradiated the town. The company which funded the reactor, Nukamama Corporation, established a university called the Tromaville Institute of Technology (referred to by the acronym TIT).
An evil professor at TIT, Professor Melvina Holt (played by Lisa Gaye) has designed a type of being called “subhumanoids”. These people have no emotions and are designed solely to serve as laborers.
Roger Smith, a reporter for the school paper (played by Brick Bronsky) meets a subhumanoid named Victoria (played by Leesa Rowland).
The subhumanoids have a critical design flaw which causes them to melt down randomly, and Roger wants to prevent this from happening to Victoria. He enters the nuclear reactor in order to fix her, but a giant mutant squirrel named Tromie is guarding it – so he has to battle this creature.
When I was in high school I would actually sign up for junk mail. It didn’t matter what it was: newspapers, magazines, anything. I’d get at least three free newspapers every day that I would never read. I’d just collect them and store them in boxes. I loved getting junk mail. It made me feel…important.
And then a couple of years later I discovered aromatherapy and things got better for me.
