Troll 2 (1990)

Director: Claudio Fragasso

Stars: Michael Stephenson, George Hardy, Margo Prey, Deborah Reed

A young child is terrified to discover that a planned family trip is to be haunted by vile plant-eating monsters out of his worst nightmare. His attempt to save his beloved family is assisted by the spectra of his deceased grandfather.

There was not a troll in this entire movie. They were goblins. That is not the same thing folks. This movie did not even need to be made. It does not add or take away anything from the first movie. There was really no point in the movie at all, especially since there were no trolls in the movie at all.

The story for this movie was really stupid. I mean, who in the hell is going to take a vacation to a small town. There is nothing there to do, you do not have any family to visit there, so why in the hell would you go on vacation there? How would a town like this even survive for all of these years without anyone else knowing about it? The characters were some of the worst that I had seen in any movie.

The special effects for the movie was terrible. They people died in bubbly lime jello on the floor. That is what it looked like. It was so bad. One of the various Emmanuelles from the infamous "Emmanuelle" series of soft-core porno movies designed this movie's pitiful costumes. That should give you some indication of their quality. They were like burlap sacks with a rope tied around the waist. That woman could have done a better job.

The acting is really bad. Deborah Reed was that weird and strange witch like woman that was over the goblins. She was so bad that all of her scenes were almost funny. I do not mean her lines in the movie. It was the different expressions on her face. They were so bad but really funny. She was just overacting all over the place. Most of the rest of the cast was doing the same, a little bit. All of the "performances" were a bit over the top.

I do not know, if I can call this movie a good bad movie. It is just so bad that it is just unwatchable. It really is not really that neat or off the wall. The movie was just stupid to sit through. I know there will be people that will love this movie. I watched it, so you don't have to.
