Best Worst Movie

Best Worst Movie is the acclaimed feature length documentary that takes us on an off-beat journey into the undisputed worst movie in cinematic history: “Troll 2.”
In 1989, when an Italian filmmaker and unwitting Utah actors shot the ultra-low budget horror film, “Troll 2,” they had no idea that twenty years later they would be celebrated worldwide for their legendary ineptitude.
Two decades later, the film’s now-grown-up child star (Michael Paul Stephenson) unravels the improbable, heartfelt story of the Alabama dentist-turned-cult movie icon and the Italian filmmaker who come to terms with this genuine, internationally revered cinematic failure.
