Trivia

Filmed in a Van Nuys warehouse off of/behind north of Sepulveda Blvd. during the hot summer months requiring air conditioned facilities for both (front of warehouse) production office, costume, dressing rooms, with the stage area located behind. The exterior backside/rear of the warehouse building was adapted with a street shop facade tied with the interior shop (set on stage). Anthony Newly's dressing room trailer was located opposite the warehouse back-street facade. The shop interior, and basement sets were permanent, while the motorcycle gangs' bar, fashion show were swing sets, clearing space for the other film sets constructed for the film. Other locations were within a ten mile radius of the home base warehouse stage. See more »

You can't possibly get any worse than this
24 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll admit, I couldn't finish this atrocity. I watched 10 minutes worth of clips and I wouldn't usually write a review of a movie I haven't seen 90% of, but the 10 minutes was enough to convince me that you will never find a worse movie. And I saw Troll 2. The humor is crude, there isn't anything funny about the things those kids do. The acting is so bad, even the laughs sound fake. But it wasn't any of that that really made me cringe, although they added to the cringe factor a lot, it was the puppetry and the kids in general. Oh. My. Goodness. They are so creepy! And on top of being creepy, they're gross? No thank you!! Bottom of the heap. As someone who usually likes to give even bad movies a shot, the fact that I couldn't sit through the clips is saying something. I'm also very generous in my reviews (I gave Troll 2 a 5/10 for goodness sake!) but there is no comparison, this movie is by far the worst thing in film history. This should be recalled and the actors should keep this off their resumes.
