He tries to get a job, but fails as a normal job is no place for a creature of superhuman size and strength. Until on day, Toxie is told that his blind girlfriend Claire, has a chance to see again, but it costs a lot of money. Then Toxie gets the opportunity to work as a spokesman for his enemy Apocolypse Inc. He says "yes" so he can get money for Claire. Not knowing what he was doing, Apocolypse Inc. takes over Tromaville and makes everyone slaves to work for them. After Claire's surgery, she opens up Toxie's eyes and he has too battle with The Devil himself so there will be a better future and a room for Toxic Avenger Part 4. Written by Tromaville SPEAKER

Trivia

Rick Collins said that during production, three child extras were scared of him in the Devil make up. When he convinced the first two children that it was only make up and even offered for them to feel it, they did and were no longer scared. However, when the third child tried to feel it, he did the Devil's scream and since then, he has admitted he felt bad about doing it. See more »

People just don't understand
12 August 2004 | by Sleepless_128See all my reviews

Despite what people will say this is another great Toxic Avenger movie. Part 2 & 3 were made as one so this movie takes place right after the first. Putting Toxie in a yuppie nightmare was a very smart and funny thing to do. I loved the fact that they turned toxie back into a 90 pound weakling(although i wish they would have used Mark Torgle). The beginning was a really good! If you haven't seen this movie you might be afraid by some of the other comments on this movie but don't be. It's a great movie about the temptations of Toxie. Satan is the main bad guy!! How can you not like this movie? A toxic avenger movie with Satan as the main bad guy, what's not to like? Anyways if you haven't seen this movie please go buy it, not rent it, buy it. GO BUY The Toxic Avenger Part III: The Last Temptation of Toxie!
