There are good films. There are bad films. There are awful films. And then there's Troll 2. The quality of Troll 2 transcends the good-bad spectrum - the film is completely indescribable. I mean, how can you decide whether movie where the villains are vegetarian goblins trying to turn people into plants is good or bad?
The "plot" - as much as it could be called one - follows the Waits family: bratty squeaky-voiced Joshua, stoner 80s girl Holly, nice-but-dim father Michael and the confused mother Diana, as they holiday in the sleepy desert town of Nilbog (read it backwards). Unfortunately, the townspeople are goblins in disguise, and if the family eats any food, they'll be transformed into green slime!
Along the way, they're aided and hindered by Joshua's grandfather, Grandpa Seth - who's dead -, Holly's sexually-confused boyfriend Elliot, his equally sexually-confused (and -frustrated) "boys", and Creedence Leonore Gieulgud, a druidess who controls the goblins with the Magic Stone of Stonehenge.
The film is laughably bad, it actually becomes an excellent comedy - probably better than most intentional ones. And here's the kicker. There are no trolls in this film. Not one. In fact, it has NOTHING to do with Troll at all.
Troll itself is not a bad film. Not a good one either, but it has a catchy tune and a kid wizard called Harry Potter. But really, Troll 2 is the standout film on this DVD.
