Tagline: The story behind the worst movie ever made – Troll 2.
When is a movie so bad, that it’s considered good? Erm… when it receives the title of the ‘worst movie ever made!’
And according to its fans, this title has been awarded to the truly dreadful horror film, Troll 2 (1990). A film so poor, that I don’t ever recommend you go out of your way to watch it, as it would simply be a waste of your time.
However, I do recommend you go out of your way to watch Best Worst Movie, which is a documentary about Troll 2. Best Worst Movie looks at the story behind the film, with a specific focus on one of the movie’s stars, George Hardy, who has become somewhat of a celebrity on the horror scene.
Having left the acting world decades ago, Hardy is now a dentist by trade, and a very successful one at that, but every once in a while he is dragged back to the world of horror to talk about Troll 2. This docu-film follows Hardy’s journey, including the ups and downs he has experienced over the years, and is a fascinating watch throughout.
And most important of all, you don’t need to have watched Troll 2 to appreciate Best Worst Movie. The docu-film is a self-contained piece, which provides you with everything you ever need to know about the movie, without having to go through the pain of sitting through it.
DON’T watch Troll 2, but DO watch Best Worst Movie. It’s arguably one of the most compelling docu-films connected to the horror genre, and possibly the most positive thing to come from Troll 2’s existence.
