Troll 2 is widely talked about as one of the worst movies ever... I've seen several of the supposed worst movies of all-time and although Troll 2 is really bad---it isn't the worst movie ever...I think like with how good Citizen Kane is considered (very overated as a movie--although inspiring with its camera work) this just didn't live up to that worst movie ever billing. Plan 9 from Outer Space does. Plan 9 is so bad that it is good. I would put The Mummy Themepark up against this movie any day in the worst movie of all-time category. Troll 2 is just bad enough to still be bad...Where as The Mummy Theme park is so bad that it is great.
So what does Troll 2 entail. A bunch of Goblins from the town of Nilbog (that is Goblin backwards). Turn people into vegetables so they can eat them. The Goblin costumes are terrible. I felt like they were trying to rip off the Peter Jackson New Zealand low budget classic Bad Taste to a certain degree and just got it wrong. There is a great bad performance by Deborah Reed as the Goblin Queen (I think she read the script wrong and thinks she is part vampire). So yes it is terrible---but I think it is overrated as far as being one of the worst.
