Are you a fan of Troll 2? It’s okay. You can admit it! There are lots of us out there! So much so that a documentary has been made focusing on the fans, the film, and the spectacle that the little flick has turned into! Now that it has found distro though Area23A, you’re gonna get your chance to join in on the heartwarmingly silly event that is Best Worst Movie at hopefully a theatre near you!
In Best Worst Movie Michael Paul Stephenson makes his directorial debut by exploring one of the worst and most critically panned movies ever made, Troll 2, which he starred in twenty years ago as a child.
In 1989 Italian director Claudio Fragrasso cast small-town dentist Dr. George Hardy and a group of unwitting Utah actors in the ultra-low budget horror film Troll 2. Soon after its disastrous release, Dr. Hardy retired from his short-lived acting career and returned to dentistry in his hometown of Alabama, unaware of the legions of fans that would one day recognize him as a cult movie luminary.
Best Worst Movie reveals the improbable heartfelt story of an Alabama dentist-turned-cult-movie icon and an Italian filmmaker as they come to terms with their internationally revered cinematic failure.
Stephenson and his wife, Lindsay Stephenson, produced Best Worst Movie under their production company, Magic Stone Productions. Brad Klopman also produced, and Doug Mankoff of Echo Lake is the producer’s rep for the film.
