For people looking to enter the realm of Bad Movies, I can think of no better movie to begin with than 1990’s Troll 2. Science fiction, fantasy and horror movies make the best film fail fodder. I think it’s the inclusion of special effects and makeup that really hurts these genres. That, and they are inherently ridiculous, so pulling them off convincingly is actually pretty impressive. Troll 2 is impossibly cheesy. It’s one of those films that has no redeeming value except to laugh at. Bad writing, bad acting, bad effects, bad direction, and bad…actually the soundtrack is a little fun. But that only enhances the inane cheesiness of the movie. I recommend Troll 2 and give it a Code Red rating. If you want to know what bad movies are all about, try this crapfest. You’ll be glad you did.
I picked this montage because it doesn’t give the away the worst parts that make the film so special. Also, people usually ask me if they should watch Troll 1 first. Simply put: absolutely not.
