Troll 2

Buy Tickets


(1990) dir Claudio Fragasso w/Michael Stephenson, George Hardy, Margo Prey [95 min; Digital]
Widely considered one of the worst movies of all time, TROLL 2 is also one of the strangest. A cast of mostly non-professional actors. A transplanted Italian director who spoke no English. A title that has nothing to do with the plot. A sequel with no connection to the first film. Terrible special effects. Unconvincing makeup. Somehow, all of these elements combine to make a hilariously entertaining cult classic.

1990 was a very odd year cinematically. Perched on the verge of a new decade but still steeped in the neon-colored weirdness of the 1980s, the films of 1990 often feel simultaneously like throwbacks and bold new steps. Nowhere is that more obvious than in the cavalcade of weird cult films released that year. In this latest installment of our late night screening series REEL WEIRD BRATTLE, we focus on some of those strange titles that combine an ‘80s earnestness and a ‘90s cynicism.
