Back in 1989, the international sensation, Italian Director Claudio Fragasso travelled to Utah to make his American masterpiece.
At this point in Fragrasso’s career he was riding high on the waves of Terminator 2 and Zombie Flesh Eaters 2, classic films in their own right and through them he had achieved international acclaim, collecting accolades from every film festival he attended, the world eagerly awaited Claudio’s next foray into the celluloid realms.
…actually that’s not entirely true.
Claudio did make those films and he was intent on breaking into America, but his previous films were dire rip offs, had nothing to do with the preceding namesakes and blatant bandwagon jumping.
So when he decided to make Goblin, he thought, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it and called it Troll 2.
If you thought Blood Feast was a laugh fest like no other, you’re in for a real treat as Joshua and his family engage in a house swap and arrive in Nilbog. Unknown to our heroes, Nilbog is home to a group of vegetarian goblins, intend on turning Joshua’s family into trees & bushes for a feast.
Continuity, logic, acting and directing are pretty much completely disregarded on such a gargantuan scale that Troll 2 becomes mind boggling ridiculous and thoroughly enjoyable in equal measure.
We do hope you will join us on 2nd of November as we return to our regular spot on the first Monday of the month to relish in the true horror of Troll 2, which has honestly become something of an international sensation and the subject of its own documentary, “The Best Worst Movie Ever Made.”
We will wow you with our bizarre shorts and two of you lucky people will win one of our prizes at our raffle, so get down early as the fun starts around half 7 on Monday, 2nd November.
And of course we hope to see this Thursday for our Halloween Spectacular where we will be showing the classic, Heathers.
