About ten years ago I was searching through cable tv channels looking for something to watch, and came across a very odd movie that I though was a skit or parody for the first 10 or so minutes that I watched it. This movie had acting and dialogue that was so awful, I couldn’t really believe that what I was watching was in fact an actual movie. The special effects were laughably bad, and the costumes appeared to have come from the Dollar Store. I couldn’t look away however and had to keep watching. This movie was Troll 2.

In honor of Shout Factory’s recent release of Troll 2 on Blu-Ray, which also includes the original but unconnected Troll and the excellent documentary Best Worst Movie (but only on the first 5,000 pressings), here is our video that breaks down everything you need to know about the legendarily bad Troll 2.
