I watched Troll 2 back on Friday, April 20, 2012 and I am still shaking my head at it. I had heard for years that this was one of the worse movies ever made, but somehow I had not watched it yet. Released in 1990, and despite being called “Troll 2” there are no Trolls in the movie, or even mentioned. The movie is full of Goblins, and has absolutely no connection to the original movie, Troll.
The reason the movie piqued my interest is because I recently watched a documentary about the film called “The Best Worst Movie” (http://bestworstmovie.com/) which reunites the cast and director to discuss their experiences making the film and what they are up to now – a fun, documentary about a pathetic movie. I just had to watch it after that.
The story (if you can call it that) is about a family that are taking part of a holiday home swap with a family from a town called “Nilbog.” When they arrive they find a strange town filled with strange people. The family’s son is tipped off to the evil lurking in Nilbog by his dead Grandfather, and he must find a way to save his family.
Bad, bad, bad movie, but I am glad I watched it. Only watch this if you truly enjoy watching bad movies for bad movies sake.
