Movie Info

This documentary reviews the making of the film "Troll 2" from the perspective of its former child actor star, Michael Stephenson. In 1989, a group of actors and an Italian production crew join forces to produce a slice of unwitting cinematic history. Stephenson and those involved with the ill-fated sequel tell the story of Italian director Claudio Fragasso's B-movie classic, among them the Alabama dentist who became a cult star because of his famous, immortal line.

Audience Reviews for Best Worst Movie

  • Sep 12, 2015
    Best Worst Movie is a fascinating exploration of the cult phenomenon that has arisen around the B-horror film Troll 2. Centered around small-town dentist and Troll 2 star George Hardy, the documentary follows his journey as he discovers the underground cult following that the film has generated and attends several midnight screenings around the country, along with a couple of horror movie conventions, all building to a cast reunion and on-location screening where Troll 2 was shot. Additionally, various fans and film critics are interviewed, and discuss how they found the film and why it resonates with audiences. Yet the filmmakers are dutiful to show that Troll 2's appeal is rather limited to a select audience that appreciates B-movies, and that most of the cast and crew acknowledge how bad the film is. Providing an interesting look at how a "bad movie" can gain a life of its own, Best Worst Movie is incredibly compelling.

    A fascinating examination of an underground cultural phenomenon, Best Worst Movie offers up a surprising amount of pathos -- though its bloated runtime means it tends towards repetition during its second half.

    A surprising and bittersweet doc that will certainly appeal more to those out there who share the same strange fascination for this unexpected cult phenomenon (me included), even if it simplifies the reason for its shocking success into simple matters of being entertaining.

    The only thing wrong with this documentary is the time. Too short for so many characters, actors, scenes and history that eventually doesn't appear. Very funny, exciting, moving... a great event for a great terrible movie.
