Best Worst Movie
Directed by Michael Stephenson
The 1989 low-budget horror film TROLL 2 tells the story of a boy whose family takes him to a town filled with goblins in disguise. Despite a scary premise, stinko performances and a lame script soon landed the film a cult following who called it “the best bad movie of all time.” In this hilarious documentary perfect for superfans and newbies alike, director Michael Stephenson (aka the child star of TROLL 2) gives us all the inside goop on Nilbog from his co-stars and Italian director Claudio Fragasso, who still thinks his film is good! What’s it like to be in the worst movie ever made? Watch and find out.
This doc tells the story of TROLL 2 and how it became “the best bad movie of all time.”
Cast: George Hardy, Michael Stephenson, Darren Ewing, Jason Steadman
With this cast or real life characters, this could have devolved into madness. It moves along well enough, with some truly absurd, cringey goodness.
The first ~30 minutes are a fun celebration of Troll 2 and its fanbase, but after that (starting more or less once the director comes into the picture) it devolves into something that's increasingly awkward and occasionally uncomfortable to watch. Worth a watch for its bizarre tonal shifts alone, but be prepared to do a whole lot of cringing.
Fascinating! I watched Troll 2 after and loved it loll :D
A delight for cult fans.
A fun watch. Introduced me to a movie that made me laugh so hard I cried.
