Troll 2 (Fragasso, 1990): Prince Charles Cinema, 7.10pm
This film is followed by the documentary Best Worst Movie on the Troll 2 phenomenon.
Here's the Prince Charles introduction: Following their SELL OUT performance back in February, TROLL 2 &
BEST WORST MOVIE are back at The PCC for a second helping of Nilbog
good-badness. The original "best worst film" of all time, TROLL 2, will
again be screened alongside it's surprisingly excellent counterpart,
BEST WORST MOVIE, making this the best worst movie night you're ever
likely to see. The evening will also include: Free Double Decker Bologna
Sandwiches, Nilbog Milk served at the Bar, Corn On The Cob & a raffle
draw to win an original TROLL 2 VHS cassette.
Chicago Reader review:
A leading candidate for worst movie ever made, this cheapo horror flick
by Claudio Fragasso was originally called “Goblins,” but when it went
straight to video in 1990, it was repackaged as a sequel to the earlier
and completely unrelated Troll (1986). The clumsy acting,
laughable effects, and idiotic plot (marauding forest goblins try to
turn a vacationing family into edible green goo) have won the movie a
cult following whose believers insist it's so bad it's good. That may be
so—there are certainly some derisive laughs to be had here—but life is
short, and I can think of a lot more movies so good they're good. The
new documentary Best Worst Movie examines the Troll 2 phenomenon and reveals what became of the no-name actors unlucky enough to have starred in the legendary turkey.
Here is the trailer.
