Movie #2078: Troll 2 (1990, Claudio Fragasso)

Apparently, I'm way behind the times as far as worst-movie-ever-made is concerned. While I kept on thinking that "Plan Nine From Outer Space" was #1, this here "Troll 2" is now the front runner.
Well, the visuals are quite good in "Troll 2" - no problem there. The plot is idiotic. The acting is abysmal. But it's the dialogue that's truly awful. However, this is a kid's movie! The bad plot, acting and dialogue were intentional. That doesn't count! Now, admittedly, they went way too far. Even an 8 year old is gonna find this pretty goofy.
They must have thought: we'll make a scary movie for kids. What do kids hate? Eating their vegetables! That's what we'll make: a vegetarian movie where the monsters are always trying to get the "good guys" to eat vegetables. And how does our 8 year old hero scare the monsters? It's pure genius: with a baloney sandwich!
So, no, it's not the worst movie ever made. Not even close. In fact, it's kinda fun.
