Treatment 60 – Troll 2

On this occasion, we were forced into the mouth of madness. We had planned, at the request of a listener, to cover Star Slammer. We were looking forward to a simple, sci-fi women’s prison movie. Oh, how blissfully ignorant we were!! Cruel fate had other plans for us. Due to a Netflix error, we couldn’t watch Star Slammer and were backed against a wall. As a desperate last resort, we decided to cover Troll 2.

Troll 2

It sounds dumb to cover a sequel…except that this film has nothing at all to do with the film Troll. The plot is inscrutable, the acting is awful, and the moral is anything but. We discuss it all, in painful detail!

DIG IN… as we start the show with one of our worst openings ever, with Marc eating, Kirk recommending we start over, Matt distracting us, and Doug leaving to go pee.

EAT IT UP… as conversation ranges from Orson Wells, to pedophilia, to corncob fetishes, to Don Imus!!!

VEG OUT… when conversation peters out and our anticipation about next week’s movie outshines this week’s movie!!!

As always, find Troll 2 on Netflix to watch instantly! You can also find it available to stream on Amazon (for a rental fee) or on DVD. If plan to shop Amazon, please go through our store and we’ll get a small commission! Also, remember to drop us a review on iTunes and subscribe to the podcast while you’re there!

Next Week’s Treatment: We bring on podcast favorite, James Hong!! Yep, he wrote, directed, and starred in The Vineyard!

  1. The dad in this movie looks like Aaron Eckhart.

    I’ve never cared for Troll 2… Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2 is the best worst movie ever made!

  2. Thanks for the shout out during the podcast guys ….

    Funny podcast for a film that I have been fortunate not to see as of yet …

    I do enjoy bantering with you gents on TwitCrack


    Off topic: You guys have said you’ve wanted to do another musical. Too bad Paul Mc Cartney’s “Give My Regards To Broad Street” is not streaming. I liked that film and I’d like to hear someone give it a few jabs … has great music but it is not so good in the story department …. Cast includes McCartney, Ringo Starr, Tracey Ullman and Bryan Brown,,,,,,,,

    For those interested in the film check

    the plot is — Paul McCartney’s recording of his new album is complicated by the fact that the master tapes of his recordings are missing.

    1. Hey Pyuma Man! Sorry about the delay on this post appearing. You were marked as spam by our filters…maybe cuz you included a link. Anyhoo, thanks for the recommendation, I hadn’t heard of it. Since we try to stick to stuff that’s easy to find, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing this one soon. Along the same lines, I’ve been pushing for Sargent Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, starring the Bee Gees and Peter Frampton. No one else seems very keen to cover it.

  3. “There can be only Hong” made me laugh so hard I dropped the pile of dust that I was trying to carefully transport across the floor that I just finished cleaning. Thanks guys.

  4. FYI:

    Debra Reed .. the actress who played the Troll Queen is on twitter as @Troll2Queen
