Alternate Versions

There is one slight inconsistency between the VHS version and the DVD version. In the VHS, when sheriff Gene Freak gives Drew the sandwich, after Drew bites into it he says "thank you sheriff this is good". But in the DVD, you see him mouthing "thank you sheriff this is..." and then you hear the word "good". In other words, they muted the words "thank you sheriff this is" on the DVD version. However, this was later corrected for Scream Factory's Blu-Ray release. See more »

Awful, but funniest thing ever.
6 February 2005 | by zygfrieds_baboonSee all my reviews

Imagine....some really bored media students who have rented a motor-home and have loads of popcorn to be used. Then imagine a film where those are the most expensive things in it. This is that film. Troll 2 - yet has no troll. Just goblins. But hey. The first time I saw this, I wished I had been wearing a nappy or sitting on a very big sponge, it is that funny. Personally, I could not get up from rolling around on the floor, nor the people I was with, although they had it worse, as they kept falling off the bed. Unfortunately, it is funny without meaning to be, simply because it is that bad. It seems to just have people dragged in from the street in the leading roles, which could well be true. Maybe somebody was very drunk when they decided to make this film. Or when they made it. Or when they went ahead with all the stages of production. Just possibly. Anyway, it is hilarious. I got my DVD copy for £2. That says it all really I would say. Watch this film if you want to see: neon-coloured food, children in masks and dressed in sacks charging around a forest set to a dodgy 1990-theme, awful make up, worse acting, even worse dialogue, the funniest yokels ever (including Sheriff Freak - 'nuff said) and the mightiest weapon ever seen in any film ever. Go on, watch it. Best laugh of my life, could be yours too.
