Our friends at HorrorBuzz.com return to their regular last-Monday-of-the-month night at The Frida with a true cinematic gift – a special screening of what is widely considered the “Best Worst Movie” ever made (even earning its own making-of documentary with that title!), the 1990 cinematic whatchamacallit known as TROLL 2!
Famously featuring nary a single troll (the creatures in the film are referred to as Goblins), the “plot” of Troll 2 can best be described thusly: the ghost of a little boy’s grandfather appears and warns the child that terrible things will await his family if they move to the farming town of Nilbog (get it??). Of course parents never listen, and the family soon finds themselves surrounded by increasingly strange new neighbors – including the villainous witch Creedence Leonore Gielgud, played by actress Deborah Reed as if she’s performing in her community preschool’s Halloween play.
Not to suggest that Reed’s performance is the worst thing about Troll 2 – although it would be near-impossible to narrow down what is. Maybe it’s the performances by the entirely non-professional cast, most of whom auditioned as extras, and were completely lost as to the plot as they were handed their dialogue as they showed up on set. Maybe it’s the fact that the screenplay was written by an Italian husband and wife who spoke English very poorly – and then forbade the actors to change or correct a single word of dialogue. Or perhaps it’s the infamous “OH MY GOD!” scene – which has been experienced on YouTube over four million times.
Experience Troll 2 on the big screen, with a themed “Miraculous Broth” for our 21+ guests, and best of all, an audience of fellow B-movie and cult cinema lovers! And yes – there will be popcorn…

“No description of it can quite contain its misguided ludicrousness or the way its infinite and varied sins against the traits of good cinema combine to produce one of the most uproarious unintentional comedies ever made.” – James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
“Godawfulness — in the best way imaginable.” – Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
“It is a marvel of ineptness, staging scene after scene of total implausibility without a single believable performance, and many lines of dialogue that pose an audacious disregard for coherence. What characterizes the film is a consistency in tone.” – Rumsey Taylor, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
