Chances are you've either already seen Troll 2 or it's just something that's not down you're alley. This pop cultural pariah tells the story of a family who takes a vacation in a small farming town called Nilbog (“It's goblin spelled backwards! This is their kingdom!”) and soon find themselves being hunted down by a village of goblins who intend to harvest their bodies for food.
If that sounds terrible, keep this in mind: I'm trying to make it sound way cooler than it actually is.
To really “get” Troll 2, you have to know its history. To help express his wife's frustration with her vegetarian friends, Italian filmmaker Claudio Fragasso created a movie around her script about a town of vegetarian goblins who won't eat meat, but instead turn humans into plants to feed off of them. The film's original title was Goblin, but was later renamed Troll 2 by its United States distributor in an attempt to capitalize on the small success of the completely unrelated film Troll. So this is the kind of treat you're getting yourself into.
To make matters even more asinine, Fragasso gave all leading roles to people who showed up to work as extras. Worse, he only spoke broken English and made every actor read their lines verbatim, even when they tried to correct the script's grammar and syntax. Even worse, the movie is just stupid as hell. But I have a feeling you already got that.
This clusterfuck of ego and disregard results in one of the most bizarre and extremely watchable bad movies ever filmed. I'm not even going to pretend like I think this movie is educational. It's not. It's just stupid. However, if it were educational, this is definitely what I would have learned from it.
