Best Worst Movie
In 1989 Italian film director Claudio Fragasso directed a movie that achieved an honor of dubious distinction; it was hailed as one of the worst movies ever made. The film was Troll 2. My personal feeling about the film is that from what I've seen, it just might win the title of the worst movie ever made. I can't say this with certainty because my sensibilities which can usually handle bad films with very little cringing, forced me to turn it off after only about ten minutes. I wouldn't recommend it; this is good because the library doesn't own the title. I do however strongly recommend the documentary about Troll 2's rising cult status the Best Worst Movie.
Best Worst Movie reunites the cast of Troll 2 as they somewhat puzzlingly join their fans in celebration of a film that even they admit was bad. In fact the only one involved in the film who seems to think the film was a work of art is the director. There is one other person but she's ... No, you'll have to watch the documentary to find out about her. The documentary is fun and entertaining. The reactions of the Troll 2 fans have to be seen in order to be believed. Best Worst Movie was enjoyable and well made. What a pity that we can't say the same about Troll 2. But then again if we could, we wouldn't have a reason for this film would we?
