Best Worst Movie, opening today (9/10/10) at the Hollywood Theater

Best Worst Movie (Doc 2009)
Director: Michael Stephenson

In 1990, an Italian film crew came to a small town in Utah to create a horror film, working title Goblins.  The result was eventually released as Troll 2, though it had nothing to do with Troll (1986).
T2 has become a cult classic, considered by many to be the worst film of all time, and it certainly is a contender.  The director, Claudio Fragasso, is a kind of Italian Ed Wood, inept, untalented and clueless about his own shortcomings.  But, he turns out to be a monumental schmuck as well, arrogant, tyrannical and convinced that he is a genius ignored by a callous world.
