Troll 2 is a special little doozy of a film. Rated near the bottom of IMDB's Worst 100 Movies, the movie has absolutely nothing to do with the first (awful) Troll movie. So little, in fact, that the movie doesn't even have trolls in it. The midgets in halloween costumes you'll see in the trailer are GOBLINS, and goblins are the stars of the movie Troll 2.
So, to explain things... a happy family takes a vacation to the town of Nilbog, which definitely isn't "goblin" spelled backwards. That magical floating head you see is the deceased grandfather, who sometimes shows up to give advice. The goblins eat people, but only if they turn them into plants first. To turn into a plant, you must... ugh. I'm not even going to bother explaining any further. If the trailer looks awful to you, I assure you the movie is actually worse.
At 1:00 - "They're eating her! And they're going to eat me!"
At 2:00 - HOLY SHIT IS THAT GUY ON FIRE WHAT???
And because I can't go a week without linking to an Onion AVClub story, they pit Troll 2 against the even worse Manos: Hands of Fate, with clip goodness. Manos is deserving of its own post here soon...
