Troll 2 (1990)



As youngsters, my friend Steve and I would constantly watch shitty movies on Cinemax and The Movie Channel and bask in every minute of nostalgic cheesiness. It seemed like every hour The Magic Kid 2 or 3 Ninjas Kick Back was playing. For the ultimate rush in shit-crafted celluloid, we’d tune in to consecutive viewings of Troll 2, a film that features, well, no trolls whatsoever. If you’re already a fan of horror, you know how big this film has become. It’s now considered the “best/worst” movie ever, inspiring countless screenings, festivals, and a documentary on the film’s cult following, developed by Michael Stephenson (who played the lead role of Joshua in the film). Watching the trailer, I think it’s actually a better account of the movie than the film itself, especially editing wise. If you’ve yet to see Troll 2, don’t miss out. This should be on anyone and everyone’s bucket list.
