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.

While Troll 2 is undeniably awful, there's plenty to enjoy if you're a fan of epically terrible movies.

I've seen worse, but nevertheless, this is wretched, bottom-of-the-barrel stuff.

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.

Audience Reviews for Troll 2

A hugely entertaining trash gem that earned its reputation as the best worst movie ever made, so appallingly bad it's hilariously great, with an awful script full of plot holes the size of a goblin, ridiculous over-the-top performances and shocking continuity errors that will make you choke with laughter.

So many unforgetable lines and scenes. Awful acting, poor screenplay, amateur directing, cheep production, a perfectly bad / weird movie and it's because of this Troll 2 is one of the best movies I ever saw.

One of the worst films ever made yet still very entertaining. It's so bad that it's funny; many scenes will make you laugh out loud at just how terrible it is. The costumes look like they were bought out of a cheap Halloween store. The editing is sloppy and the story is full of absurdities. Don't even get me started on the acting.

This movie is like the perfect storm of crumminess. It's great, without being good by anyone's definition. It's so stupid, it makes no sense and everything is done wrong. The cameras can't keep anyone in shot, the sound got loused up at several points causing the dialogue to be lost and the story is confusing at best and internally confused at worst. From what I understand, a psychic or possibly schizophrenic child is being haunted and/or is imagining his dead grandfather, who menaces him by telling him incredibly insistent fairy tails about murderous goblins. Then his family goes on vacation to a town where the malevolent inhabitants keep trying to kill them by tricking them into eating pistachio pudding. The goblins prey on humans, despite being vegetarians, so they have to first magically turn their prey into rotting vegetation before they can eat them. The writer has since said that she was trying to express her frustration at her hoity-toity newly vegetarian friends, so hah! Take that, vegans! Revenge is a dish best served by insane Italian people, who have only ever read about food in books.There's also a manic evil witch in the movie. Who is also evil. I don't know why. This movie is so much fun to watch, and the stilted dialogue and really glaring plot mistakes will have you rolling in the aisles. One time, a troll gets punched in the face hard enough to visibly spin his mask around on his head. It's hilarious. Also, why is it that the family needs to have a seance to summon Grandpa Seth, an unwelcome spirit that they couldn't get rid of even twenty minutes ago? Why do the characters narrate what they're doing aloud? Why does Eliot bring his idiot friends everywhere? What's the difference between the goblins and the possessed townsfolk? This movie is like the kid at school that gets made fun of, not just for being odd but for trying to be cool by saying "yo" and "radical" a lot. I am so happy I saw this movie. It's really really bad, but it is so enjoyable.
