First off the worst-movie-ever-made reputation is stupid. Anyone who has had years of sifting through bargain basement DVDs and watching hours of pure dreck knows that Troll 2 is something special. Well-paced, lovingly filmed trash completely lost in its own warped little world with performances you wouldn't find in ANY other movie. Don't confuse its surreal Italian flavour with simple 'badness'. This is next level.
Meh, in the world of ironically good there's better and there's worse, and this one certainly benefits from its documentary. I think some of the plant make-up effects are decent enough to be unironically appreciated and some of the camp is fun enough that I did not regret watching this as a group bad movie night thing. --PolarisDiB
One of my absolute favorite films to watch with a group of people, this embodies all of the terrible aspects of film-making, bad actors, script (which according to the directors wife/screenplay writer was her slap towards vegetarians) and many other things. However, despite these obvious flaws I love this movie. No other film has brought me as much laughter and joy with friends than Troll 2.
Giving Troll 2 a rating is really impossible. It's definitely in the "so bad it's good" canon, but some of its creativity is actually really great. Its anti-vegetarianism plot seems like a comedic riff on the topics of exploitation horror movies. It's funny seeing how some of the actors seem "in" on how bad the movie is. I have weird admiration for Deborah Reed as the goblin queen from Stonehenge.
