Best Cult Movies
"Troll 2" is a serious contender for the title of "worst horror movie of all time."
The factors that had to come together to make this movie are nothing short of miraculous. The film crew, including the director/writer, was almost entirely composed of Italians who did not speak English. They named the movie "Troll 2" because they were convinced sequels were more commercial, although it has no connection to the 1986 film "Troll." It is also worth noting that there are no trolls in "Troll 2." The movie is about vegetarian goblins that cause their human victims to start sprouting branches and leaves. But, it is so much more than that. Props that look like they were made by kindergartners, sexy witches and spastic dance scenes … "Troll 2" has it all. "Best Worst Movie" — the 2009 documentary on the making of the film — brought the film to a much wider audience. Ideally, watch "Troll 2" before "Best Worst Movie" — you don't want anything tampering with the film's Dadaesque implausibility.
