Trivia

Jason Steadman wore a yellow shirt with a logo during the first half of shooting. It got lost at one point, and instead of re-filming all of the scenes with a different shirt, the film crew told Steadman to buy another yellow shirt. The shirt he bought didn't look like his previous yellow shirt, but he still had to wear it for the rest of production. See more »

Goofs

At beginning, when Mr. Waits is on the couch, his shirt is alternately buttoned and unbuttoned between shots See more »

Quotes

Joshua: Don't tell me they ate him, Grandpa!
Seth: That's exactly what happened... with a voracity than has no equal on Earth!

Funniest and greatest worst movie ever made!
19 July 2004 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico) – See all my reviews

A young boy named Joshua and his family from Salt Lake City are taking a vacation in a town called " Nilbog" but the kid discovers the town is inhabited by evil witches and goblins who want to eat them, only the spirit of his grandfather can help guide him on his quest to destroy the goblins in human-form from eating his family and other tourists.

What did this movie had to do with the first "Troll" movie? they didn't even mention Trolls in this movie only Goblins, this one is an Italian-US cash-in in-name-only sequel. I gotta say this has to be the funniest and most cheesiest b-movie i've ever seen in my life as it has a major cult following since it debuted on video in 1992 and had popular HBO/Cinemax showings in the 90's, it has became this generation's "Plan 9 from Outer Space" in terms of a cult movie with a camp appeal and new kind of fanbase. I'm surprised Mystery Science Theater 3000 didn't riff this crappy in a good way sort of film for it would have been their most popular episode of all time, this movie has became a new cult sensation and even spawned a brilliant documentary called "Best Worst Movie Ever" which earned better reviews than this movie itself. This horror-fantasy-comedy hybrid has terrible performances, wooden dialog with memorable quotes, unintentional laughs and terrible special effects.

Two and a half reels out of five (For being so dang funny).
