In this ultra-cheapo Italian knock-off a little boy tries to warn his family and friends that the evil trolls his late grandfather used to tell him about are real. Unfortunately, no one believes him and he and his sister are sent to the enigmatic town of Nilbog where nightmarish things begin to happen. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Taking off in its own entirely misguided direction, it tells the story of an average (not to mention lousy-acting) American family that vacations in a town infested with Marty Allen clones who cause folks to sweat green chlorophyll and turn into trees.
Remember kids: Double decker bologna sandwiches, always the prime weapon against goblins!
No description of it can quite contain its misguided ludicrousness or the way its infinite and varied sins against the traits of good cinema combine to produce one of the most uproarious unintentional comedies ever made.
Even bad movies...usually stumble into a good moment or two or at least reveal a brief glimpse of the good intentions that led the filmmakers down the road to cinematic perfidy. Troll 2, however, is a disaster from start to finish.
It is a marvel of ineptness, staging scene after scene of total implausibility without a single believable performance, and many lines of dialogue that pose an audacious disregard for coherence. What characterizes the film is a consistency in tone.
It's rare to find a film with such an ignominious reputation actually living up to the hype.

- Joshua: You were in the wrong room!
- Seth: I'm still learning the layout of this house, Joshua.
- Joshua: What are you gonna do to me daddy?
