Worst Movie Ever Made?
4 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Probably.

Whilst looking over the titles in IMDb's Bottom #100 last year, I saw one film that caught my eye. At #4 it was Troll 2. I remembered seeing "Troll" a few years previously and was completely unaware there was a sequel. So I looked through the first three or four pages of the user comments and saw the words "worst film ever made" about twenty times. Having seen many, many truly awful films I found this hard to believe. So I decided to check it out for myself, and a week later I managed to track down a copy.

Troll 2. Is it as bad as they say? Yes, and possibly worse. The Plot (if you can even call it that) goes something like this. The Waits family is sick of the food in their local town, so they organize a House Swap with a family in the town of NIBLBOG. But the young Joshua Waits protests, as his recently deceased Grandfather has told him about what really goes on in NILBOG through bedtime stories. But of course the family ignore him, and all the other screaming evidence which shows that the half empty town is run by Goblins (no, not Trolls, Goblins.) Upon arrival of their new home, they discover a nice meal is already set out for them. Its green and looks like vomit, so of course they set down at the table to eat this "delicious" food. But then Joshua's Granpa's ghost comes out of nowhere to warn Josh that the food is dangerous as it has been made by the Goblins. So how does Josh save the day? Gets up on the table and takes a p iss all over their food of course!

From then on its midgets wearing paper masks, humans turning into plants, three kids traveling to NILBOG in a caravan and all sleeping half naked in the same bed, the discovery of the fact that "NILBOG" is actually "GOBLIN" written backwards and A double-decker bologna sandwich!

Troll 2 is painful to watch. The acting literally made me cringe, and the soundtrack (which is recorded using a 1980s Casio keyboard) didn't fit it in in any scenes, nor was it ever appropriate, the "special effects" were truly hilarious and the extras in the film looked embarrassed just to be there. Plus, I couldn't help but notice the movie was lacking in Trolls, as the title would imply there might be some. But oh well, you can't have everything...

1/10 - Because I can't vote 0. Highly recommended!
