  • TROLL 2 star Michael Stephenson steps behind the camera to explore the phenomenon behind the low-budget Italian-produced horror sequel that young movie fanatics have christened "the ROCKY HORROR of our generation" in this documentary which proves that just because a movie is awful doesn't mean it won't find an audience. Twenty years ago, a group of inexperienced Utah actors teamed with an Italian-speaking production crew to shoot TROLL 2. At the time it seemed like the production was a complete fiasco; little did they realize that they were making cinematic history. Flash forward two decades, when TROLL 2 is playing to packed theaters across America, and fans of the film get the unique opportunity to find out just how this messterpiece came to be. Can director Claudio Fragasso come to terms with the fact that his biggest failure has since defined his cinematic legacy? And what ever became of the Alabama dentist-turned-cult-icon who delivered the immortal line, "You can't piss on hospitality!" Discover the answer to both of these questions and more as TROLL 2 star Stephenson reveals why the film that should have been a forgettable horror sequel is still being celebrated 20 years later.
