The Holy Grail of bad movies
This is it, folks: the worst movie ever made.
I know, I know, there are many who argue that “Plan 9 from Outer Space” and “Manos: The Hands of Fate” are worse “films” than this one. Well, I’d advise those people to give “Troll 2” another viewing, this time with an open mind. As something of a self-made authority on the worst of the worst in modern cinematic torture, I feel qualified to make the bold assertion that “Troll 2” is the cream of that particular crop.
From its laugh-inducing soundtrack (apparently recorded using only a vintage 1980s Casio keyboard) to its unilaterally awful acting, “Troll 2” is a life-changing experience, similar to the Middle Ages’ trials by fire. If you succeed at ingesting this festering piece of cinematic detritus in one sitting, you will emerge a new person, like a phoenix rising from its own ashes. The watching itself may be painful, but it is ultimately worth the pain to be able to say, with conviction, “I survived ‘Troll 2,’ and I’m still technically alive.”
The special effects in this movie are, indeed, special — like a one-legged blind woman with Alzheimer’s. Trivia: one of the various Emmanuelles from the infamous “Emmanuelle” series of soft-core porno movies designed this movie’s pitiful costumes. That should give you some indication of their quality.
The acting — my God, where do I start? Suffice it to say that, if you set any cast member on fire, I would lay down even money that he or she would have a hard time convincing onlookers that it hurt. They’re really that bad. More trivia: One of Elliot’s “boys” in this movie would later go on to reprise his role (Disposable Character in Bad Movie) in the Lou Diamond Phillips classic “Bats.” Even more trivia: The father in this movie was a local dentist, and most of the extras were bona fide Utah residents, as well. Talk about low-budget.
Back to the soundtrack — There’s not a single scene in the movie where the music is appropriate to the on-screen action. I get the impression that the “composer” employed for this stinker was, in fact, a failed auditioner for Def Leppard’s still-vacant keytarist position. Seriously, it’s rare, even in straight-to-video dogs like this one, to hear music of this woeful caliber.
What more can I say that hasn’t already been set forth in previous reviews? This is the worst movie I have ever seen, and that’s saying something. It’s physically, mentally, and emotionally exhausting to watch this film — I recommend doing it alone, at least the first time you see it…that way, you can concentrate on its truly majestic badness — and on feeling your brain cells die off, one by one, until you are no longer able to speak.
Good luck to you, if you decide to watch this one. It doesn’t get any worse than “Troll 2.”
ADDENDUM (October 2007): This is still the worst movie of all time. Its status as such will never change. “Troll 2” is simply the perfect storm of bad writing, casting, direction, cinematography, costuming, score, makeup, effects, acting, editing, and inspiration.
UPDATE (June 2010): I just watched it again. Alone. In one sitting. God help me, some component of my brain must be fundamentally defective.
POSTSCRIPT (September 2013): This film continues to alter the life of each man, woman, and child with the good fortune/taste to bathe in its glory. I could not recommend it more strongly.
CODA (February 2021): This magnum opus infests my soul still. Daily, I am haunted by its indelible essence. I will never escape.
We Saw More Green Than They Did
OK, first time viewer here. I’ve been advised that Troll 2 is, in fact, the “Best Worst Movie.” I’m here to tell you: I’ve seen worse.
No, it wasn’t about the “expectations being so low due to all the reviews.” I just watched it with an open mind, though I cringed at almost every minute – especially at Creedence (Reed) who probably made her high school drama teacher drop dead if that person saw this.
Maybe it was just so well known and publicized that it garners so much attention. It’s (far too) easy to ridicule – the town of NILBOG is goblin spelled backwards in addition to blatantly reiterating the truth throughout the movie these are goblins (and not what the title suggests.) Hell, Halloween III: Season of the Witch wasn’t about Mikey Myers, but then again, aside from the future subtitles, it wasn’t called “Michael Myers.”
Perhaps it’s just me that comes down harder on movies that are actually supposed to be of high quality that’s more of a letdown. I have yet to see the documentary based on Troll 2 (though its #1 in my Netflix queue): Best Worst Movie, but I cannot simply imagine they set out to make a masterpiece.
OK, sure, it was bad all around: laughable acting, dialogue, camera angles and shots and special effects that would make the Syfy channel directors droll. And those masks! One in particular was the worst, but since they don’t wear name tags, I couldn’t state which one I’m referring to.
Is it sensible to give way the spoilers to the plot? Oh, why the hell not? Family + Dead Ghost Grandpappa head off to the town of GOBLIN (say it backwards!) where they’re practically force fed green icing in order to decompose them enough so the vegetarian residents of Nilbog can eat them.
Like all 1980s horror films (in fairness, this was released in 1990, but the three hours it took to film probably took place in 1989) it’s up to the boy who cried green to save the day. Thankfully, he’s got the most useless ghost since Ghost Dad to at least attempt to help him.
I might write an addendum to this review following my viewing of Best Worst Movie because I’m curious to learn a little more about what they were thinking. For example, not five minutes in is the stereotypical homophobic remark but later on, the same guy, Elliott (Wright) had his arm wrapped around his “buddy” in bed with no clothes on. Also, why they thought they had to steal the “not-so” brand name of the original Troll in order to sell this.
If you get a chance, like I did, watch this movie a second time using the Rifftrax commentary. I was rolling in laughter with what they came up with. That is, if you can tolerate one of the worst movies ever made a second time. (And yeah, you can. It’s call alcohol, or the “drug” of your choice.)
