Jaw-droppingly bad
18 April 2000 | by (Orlando) – See all my reviews

This is easily one of the very worst movies made. It is confusing, unintentionally funny, not funny when it wants to be, and strangely sleazy. Makes absolutely no sense whatsoever! Troll 2 is a masterpiece compared to this trash!
