Best Worst Movie and the cult of Troll 2 | Film | Interview | The A.V. Club Chicago

The combination of stilted acting, awkward dialogue, and a plot that makes any exploitation picture seem drab by comparison helped make Troll 2 a cult phenomenon.

The result is Best Worst Movie, a surprisingly moving feature on the lives of those involved in the film.
