Best Worst Movie

Synopsis: Best Worst Movie is an affectionate and intoxicatingly fun tribute to the single greatest bad movie ever made and the people responsible for unleashing it on the world. In 1989, a group of unknown Utah actors starred in what would be crowned the worst movie of all time: Troll 2. After two decades of running from this cinematic disaster, the cast can no longer hide from the legion of followers that celebrate them for their ineptitude.

Best Worst Movie, directed by Troll 2’s once-disgraced child star, Michael Paul Stephenson, unravels the improbable story of a sunny, small-town Alabama dentist turned-cult-movie-icon and a self-deluded Italian filmmaker who struggles to come to grips with his internationally revered cinematic failure. The result is a hilarious and tender offbeat journey that pays homage to lovers of bad movies and the people who make them, while investigating a deeper story about the strange nature of celebrity, the catharsis of redemption and the humanity that exists in making even the worst movie ever made.

Best Worst Movie 8.0

This is a documentary/retrospective on ‘Troll 2’ and, unlike, its subject matter, this is a really good film. It brings together all the key players from the original film and provides a historical perspective on the film’s impact on fans, cast and crew.

It’s rather fascinating stuff, in light of how poor the original film was. Why is this film so popular with certain groups? What do the filmmakers think of the outcome of their sweat and labour? And what now? What kind of future do they have in the shadows of what is considered by many as the worst movie ever?

Find out. See this film, even if you haven’t seen ‘Troll 2’. It’s well worth it.
