Life could be pretty if there wasn't someone like Ernest P. Worrell on this planet. In this movie he helps to escape an evil troll out of his grave. That's the start of the end for the world. But... Ernest wouldn't be Ernest if he wasn't planning on saving all the people. This action doesn't make it any better. It's getting worse.Written by
It bares a few similarities with another live action Disney Halloween-themed family film, Hocus Pocus (1993). For example, the creepy historical introductions are followed by classroom scenes either a teacher or student narrating about the unpleasant events and its curses against the villagers. In addition, Kenny and Max both meet up against bullies from their school before they face paranormal foes (trolls and witches). See more »
When the troll eats the shells from the Sherrif's gun, he only eats about five or six, yet he fires over twice that many. See more »
This was the best Ernest movie of all. Jim Varney shines as the bumbling fool Ernest P. Worrell. The story basically has Ernest waking up a troll, who kidnaps and turns children to wood for his evil plans. Ernest must catch what he let out. Of course that ensures much mayhem and laughter (especially that giant bear trap). The plot resembles an old horror film but it works for Ernest. My opinion on the kids is, they help the plot work and make sense but got kind of annoying. The real reason to see this movie is to see what foolish thing Ernest does next. Overall a good film.
