This is a great movie! I deserves a 3 score really. I remember that I first thought the cover looked silly, but when I saw it I was really impressed. Classical 80's b-movie, but also scary a bit, together with the music.

After I saw this movie I was bored and had appetite for jelly. I asked myself why?

I had always wanted to see Troll as a little kid but my folks never let me. So I finally rented it and found it to be a mildly enjoyable but typical Charles Band flick with some slightly A-list actors(Moriarty is very good). I got a kick out of the fact that our hero's name was Harry Potter!

The effects are done by John Carl Buechler, who is the B-movie special effects artist who created the creatures for Ghoulies and Carnosaur amongst others. His creations are just too rubbery and silly to be threatening, cute or likable. I couldn't help compare this film in some ways to Jim Henson's Labrynth, though Labrynth came out a few years later. The Troll in some ways reminded me of a hook-nosed pot bellied brother of Labrynth's Hoggle. Of course, comparing the mediocre puppetry of Troll to Jim Henson's genius is probably a bit offensive(RIP)

I hated this movie when I saw it as a teenager and I still hate it now.The movie tried to ripoff the much better GREMLINS but failed.The puppet effects were horrible.A real loser of a film.

Funny is the word for it, you can't help loving those putrid puppets and drug-addict song. And the witch. A lot of what had to be said on this board has been said but...
I'm surprised that this site doesn't have "The Garbage Pail Kids" movie. Not only this film is awful but, if you look at the basement scenes by the staircase you can see...the troll painting from Troll! 100% sure. I suppose that couldn't go to waste!

This film is amazing.  I first had the "pleasure" of viewing it in 1987 when I was five years old.  It used to scare the s**t outta me, what with the puppets singing and whatnot.

Now, I cannot help but die laughing everytime I watch this gem of a movie.

This film is an absolute barrel of laughs! You cant help but love it. The cheap as s**t effects, crappy script, and not forgetting the singing puppets! This is what the 80's was all about. God bless troll!

Last night: Troll
Tonight: Troll 2

I recognized J L D (though I didn't know her suprisingly doofy-looking husband played the part of her 'suitor') but didn't recognize Atreyu. Maybe that's because...


Yes, he did, and you know it. The director of neverendingstory was obviously giving him something he didn't have here.

But here we have a prime example of 80s cheese, both painfully and joyfully dated in every way. I wonder if it was ever interpreted as an attempt to demonize environmentalists? There seemed a focused effort to make the troll seem 'at peace,' almost benevolent, whenever it was able to bring over some more of its world.

The first Troll is a masterpiece compared to Troll 2!
You want serious pain?  You'll get it watching Troll 2.
But then again, Troll 2 is so bad it's good.   Smile

After you watch Troll 2, check out our interview with George Hardy.

In response to:  "I remember watching this movie all the time, when i was a kid. I LOVED IT!!   But now (15 years later) when i convinced my friend into renting it, he threatened to kick my ass. He says i still owe him the 4 bucks he wasted on " That stupid ass movie". whatever..... i still like it.
especially that catchy troll song."  

I used to watch Troll all the time, too!!!  I just had my husband watch it through Netflix.  Luckily, he did not want to kick my ass, but I do not think he liked it too much!!  I still like it, too!  I do realize that it is a bad movie, at the same time, though!
