TROLL / TROLL 2 [with BEST WORST MOVIE on DVD] – Review

I’m super happy to share my thoughts with all of you on Shout! Factory’s latest release, Troll / Troll 2 [with Best Worst Movie on DVD]. Yes, believe your eyes, Shout! Factory is releasing what is deemed the worst movie of all, Troll 2 (along with Troll, which has nothing to do with it) in a nice, double Blu-ray packaging. Also it includes the documentary Best Worst Movie which highlights how Troll 2, which was deemed the worst movie of all time, has a huge cult following and fan base. All three of these films have had an impact on film history, whether that be good or bad, and are worth watching every second.

This combo set is amazing and features quite a bit of special features (listed below) which make me so, so happy. While 8 is okay, Troll 2 is definitely one of my favorite B-grade films out there and the fact that it’d even be on Shout! Factory’s list of movies to re-release is astounding. Troll 2 is one of the most memorable movies and I’m so glad it exists, so I’ll definitely be cherishing my copy for years to come. It’s definitely worth the pick up and, like I said, it comes with a whole bunch of amazing bonus features!

Synopsis:

Be Afraid… Be Twice As Afraid!

TROLL
Lock the doors and pull out the weed-wacker for this house party of horror! One family is about to find out there’s no place like home when a troublesome troll starts taking over their building, transforming each apartment into an overgrown garden of ancient evil and turning tenants into a horde of hairy hobgoblins!

Michael Moriarty and Julia Louis-Dreyfus star in this super-slimy scare-fest that’s “a special-effects pig-out” (Daily News)!

TROLL 2
Those greedy goblins are back and hungrier than ever in this gourmet gross-out! Disguised as friendly country folk, a pugnacious posse of people-eating trolls lures visitors to their town. But a family of four is about to discover this place is a real tourist trap… and now, the no-good gnomes must be destroyed before the family gets flambéed… and the world becomes a buffet in this feeding frenzy of fear!

Also included: BEST WORST MOVIE (DVD, 1.78:1, 93 min.) – An affectionate and intoxicatingly fun tribute to the single greatest bad movie ever made and the people responsible for unleashing it upon the world. In 1989, a group of unknown Utah actors starred in what would be crowned the worst movie of all time: Troll 2!
Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) / Dolby Digital 5.1 / 2010 / Color / 93 minutes
