Best Worst Movie (2009)
I should probably make it known up front that I’m writing this review for one reason, and one reason only: So I can brag that I got to shake hands with the guy who played the dad in Troll 2.
Okay, that’s not entirely what one would call “true”. I was actually too chicken to go up and introduce myself. But at one point, the guy was standing not more than two feet away from me, I swear!
The actor’s name is George Hardy, by the way. You had that name on the tip of your tongue, I’m sure. Actually, a lot more people are learning that name thanks to Best Worst Movie, a documentary that catches up with Hardy and the rest of the cast and crew of the 1990 straight-to-video horror film Troll 2, and tracks the movie’s internet-fueled rise from the bargain VHS bin to “so bad it’s good” underground cult sensation.
