Best Worst Movie
Best Worst Movie – Movie Review
A look at the making of the film Troll 2 (1990) and its journey from being crowned the “worst film of all time” to a cherished cult classic.
Best Worst Movie is a documentary that is based on Troll Two. Now, unless you’re of a certain age, you’ve probably never heard of Troll Two, and I’m not even sure there was a Troll One, but this was voted by IMDB and I think many critics as one of the worst movies ever made. This is a documentary about the cast, and it starts off with a charming dentist in Alabama whom everybody just adores, Dr. George Hardy. Then it deals with the Italian director and some of the unwitting actors in Utah, including Michael Paul Stevenson who played the young boy in this and thought it would be his big career launch. It will take you a little while to figure out what’s really going on here, but this is really an astute documentary that looks at something that few things look at, which is what happens when you get your break, your chance. You get to go in three rounds to be a contender, but you couldn’t quite hack it. Is there any second act in American life? I really liked this documentary a lot. Four stars.
