Exciting things are happening in the world of terrible movies. After years of anticipation, Best Worst Movie, a documentary about the Troll 2 phenomenon, appears to finally be seeing the light of day.
Widely proclaimed to be the worst movie of all time (by the likes of IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, and my parents) Troll 2 is the cinematic non-sequitur version of a non-sequel (about goblins) to, yes… Troll. This low-budget masterwork of ineptitude was filmed in Utah back in 1989 by an Italian film crew, directing a cast of inexperienced, non-Italian-speaking actors (including a dentist from Alabama). The result is a movie that is so lovably bad, it became a genuine worldwide phenomenon. If you haven’t yet seen Troll 2, immediately open a new browser window and head over to Hulu, where it is currently and inexplicably streaming in its entirety, then come back and finish reading up on this post.
