Eager fans were already lined up at the box office 30 minutes before showtime. Inwood management hailed the turnout as among their best yet for a Midnight Movie.

Lloyd explains that Citizen Toxie is "a shot-by-shot replication of the original classic by Orsen Wells, of course, Citizen Kane. The only difference is that Troma put back into the classic all the lesbian scenes, the head-crushing scenes and the car crashes."
