In 1989, unwitting Utah actors starred in the undisputed worst movie in history: "Troll 2" decades later, the legendarily inept film's child star unravels the improbable, heartfelt story of an Alabama dentist-turned-cult movie icon and an Italian filmmaker who come to terms with this genuine, internationally revered cinematic failure.
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.
Best Worst Movie is a documentary about the cult that's grown around Troll 2 and where the actors are now. George Hardy drives this movie, an affable dentist from Alabama who loves the weird new fandom he finds himself the centre of. At times it's a little bit sad when you see what's become of Margo Prey or that Robert Ormsby seems disappointed with his life. If Hardy is the hero, then Claudio Fragasso, the director of Troll 2 is the villain, a humourless pompous pseudo-arteeste who doesn't understand what good movie-making is, doesn't understand America, can't take criticism and doesn't want you to enjoy his movie wrong. As a whole, it makes you want to see Troll 2, which is kinda cool, I guess, I'd have liked to see more of Michael Stephenson, the grown up child actor who's behind the camera.
Highly entertaining documentary about the B-movie phenomenon known as Troll 2. Now, I haven't seen the film in question myself, save for a clip or two on YouTube, but I kind of want to now after seeing this delightfully funny tribute piece. Directed by one of the "stars" of the film, it offers a fascinating inside-look into the making of and fan-fests of this very weird and bizarre creation. Or as one of its viewers put it: "It looks like it was made by aliens trying to show us humans how we behave". What I found most hilarious of all though, is that everyone seems to know it sucks, except for the director. Similiar to the likes of Ed Wood and Uwe Boll, he genuinely believes he has conceived a meaningful and sophisticated horror story, with great emotional depth. And he certainly shares the same passion for flipping off the critics. You have to give it to him though: for all the campiness and laughable acting that Troll 2 possesses, it has spawned a mind-blowing following, whose whole-hearted worshipping is not unlike a religious cult. I guess I won't fully understand why until I've actually seen it, but it goes to show that maybe it truly is the best worst movie ever made. Well, either that or its legion of fans are suffering from some kind of mass psychosis. You be the judge.
One of the most fascinating documentaries about a group of people with a loving obsession I have ever seen. What makes this film both odd and spectacularly endearing is the fact that this obsession just happens to be for the best worst movie ever made: Troll 2. Troll 2 was supposed to be a direct to video sequel to the mostly unknown Troll, a horror movie about, what else, a murderous troll, but this film has nothing to do with that film, trolls, and doesn't even make complete sense. Directed by a man who speaks primarily Italian and a written by a woman who wanted to lampoon vegetarians, not much of the film is cohesive or makes much sense. The result is a lot of unheeded and unintentional hilarity over every aspect of this unparalleled 90 minute spree. This film looks at the obscurity, peculiarity, and strange sanity of the fans of this pit
