I’m not sure how I ended up watching two movies known as “the worst ever” right next to each other like this, but apparently I did. With this type of comparison, Troll 2 definitely seemed better than The Room, but I still cursed the parents of those responsible for this film with every breath I took for a couple hours.
A family vacations to the town of Nilbog, where they’ve entered some weird exchange thing where they’ll live in some farmers’ house and they’ll go live in the city. Anyway, the young boy of the family keeps talking to the ghost of his dead grandpa who warns them to stay away from the town because it’s full of goblins (NILBOG IS GOBLIN BACKWARDS). If anyone eats the food provided to them by the goblins, they turn somehow plant-like, and then the vegetarian monsters can eat them.
So… not to be picky or anything, but if the goblins (who look like little kids in evil ewok costumes) are vegetarians, then why are they eating people at all? Seems like it’s a lot more effort to turn a dumb teen into a pile of green goop than to just eat a carrot or something. Anyway, the biggest thing that’s wrong with this movie is, of course, the acting. None of these people are actors, and nobody seemed to notice or care. Also, there isn’t a single troll in all of Troll 2, so there’s that. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend watching this movie with the Rifftrax for it, as that makes it way more bearable.
