Here’s some tantalizingly trashy news for creature feature collectors: Scream Factory will be pairing Troll and Troll II on one double-feature blu-ray in November. The first Troll is an oddball, kid-oriented fantasy flick with a fantastic character actor cast while Troll II has become infamous in bad movie fan circles as one of the most demented oddities ever aimed at the horror crowd. Both titles will get a few extras – and the first 5000 buyers will get a bonus DVD of Best Worst Movie, the amazing documentary on Troll II. Read on for all the terrific troll-mongering details, including notes on the extras and a pre-order link…
TROLL and TROLL 2
Bring Home the Cult Favorites
November 17th, 2015 from Scream Factory
On November 17th, 2015, Scream Factory will release two fan favorite cult films, Troll and Troll 2, on Blu-ray and DVD combo pack. This double feature comes loaded with bonus features, including a brand new The Making of ‘Troll’ featurette, with interviews with director John Carl Buechler, producer Charles Band, writer Ed Naha, composer Richard Band, special effects artists John Vulich and Gino Crognale, visual effects artists Jim Aupperle, James Belhovek, Linda Drake and Kevin Kutchaver; new audio commentary with actors George Hardy and Deborah Reed; a behind the scenes gallery and theatrical trailers.
As an added bonus, the first 5,000 copies sold will also include a DVD copy of Best Worst Movie. Fans can pre-order their copies by visiting ShoutFactory.com.
Lock the doors and pull out the weed-wacker for this house party of horror! One family is about to find out there’s no place like home when a troublesome troll starts taking over their building, transforming each apartment into an overgrown garden of ancient evil and turning tenants into a horde of hairy hobgoblins! Michael Moriarty and Julia Louis-Dreyfus star in this super-slimy scare-fest.
Those greedy goblins are back and hungrier than ever in this gourmet gross-out! Disguised as friendly country folk, a pugnacious posse of people-eating trolls lures visitors to their town. But a family of four is about to discover this place is a real tourist trap… and now, the no-good gnomes must be destroyed before the family gets flambéed… and the world becomes a buffet in this feeding frenzy of fear!
For the first 5,000 copies sold, a DVD of the film Best Worst Movie will be included in the set. Best Worst Movie is an affectionate and intoxicatingly fun tribute to the single greatest bad movie ever made, and the people responsible for unleashing it upon the world. In 1989, a group of unknown Utah actors starred in what would be crowned the worst movie of all time: Troll 2!
