'Best Worst Movie' Trolls Ravaging a Theater Near You

Director Michael Stephenson, the star of the infamous 'Troll 2', shot a great documentary about the film’s enormous cult following a few years back. Now thanks to distribution company Area23A the 'Best Worst Movie' will finally be shown on the big screen across the country...

Follow up:




Press Release: Area23A, the event-based film distribution company formed in January by industry veteran Richard Abramowitz and Kirt Eftekhar, founder of Ocule Films, announced today that it will theatrically release the award-winning “Best Worst Movie”, which has been an official selection in over thirty film festivals. The documentary had its world premiere at South by Southwest and has received several awards including the Top Ten Audience Favorite at Hot Docs 2009. Area23a will open the film in Austin, Los Angeles, New York, and other markets to follow this spring.

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.

Of the acquisition, Stephenson says, “Our movie – that we have devoted the last four years to – cannot be in better hands than with Area23a. They have demonstrated their ability to skillfully handle specialized
films in a crowded marketplace. The recent success of “Anvil!” is only the most recent example of Richard’s expertise in theatrical film distribution.”

Abramowitz adds, “We are very excited to bring ‘Best Worst Movie’ to theaters across the country. The movie has been generating both incredible word-of-mouth and critical acclaim through the festival circuit. Audiences are appreciating the film’s humor and are also moved by its homage to bad movies and, at least in this case, the good people who make them.” Said Eftekhar, “Keep your eyes open; we’re bringing a “Best Worst Movie/Troll 2; party to your town soon…”

Area23a is currently distributing the acclaimed “Soundtrack for a Revolution,” “The Mighty Uke,” “American Harmony,” and “They Came to Play.” Later this year it will release Sandy Cioffi’s “Sweet Crude.”

ha ha ha brilliant troll 2 truley is the best worst movie ever it's terrible, who'd have thought a film with a kid called Harry Potter could be that bad.I saw it because I remember loving troll as a kid, Although its a terrible film I've seen it 3 times, something are so bad you have to show as many people as you possibly can. Strangely enough troll 2 was a 18 certificate film in the UK, I really don't know why it was awarded an 18 I'm guessing the bbfc couldn't make it through the whole film and just randomly plonked a certificate on it, I personally would have given it a PG (parental guidance). Imay have to dig out my ex rental VHS for a giggle.
Has this documentry got a dvd release? As I'd love to see it and living in the UK we're not gonna get a specilist cinema run.

Can't wait to see this. Based on what I've read, the production of Troll 2 was hilariously absurd

If you can buy in bulk you should. The insurance people have developed collision insurance to protect the vehicle owner in case he gets hit by an uninsured driver.
Some of that depends on the car.
