20. Troll 2 (1990)

Director: Claudio Fragasso
Stars: Michael Stephenson, George Hardy, Margo Prey, Connie Young, Jason Wright, Darren Ewing

On a purely technical level, Troll 2 is arguably the worst horror movie sequel ever made, if not also one of the worst all-around movies ever shot. But anyone who’s seen the wonderful 2011 documentary Best Worst Movie knows that director Claudio Fragasso’s unbelievably awful flick uses its direness to its utmost advantage.

Troll 2 is the textbook “grab some beers, call up some friends, and have a blast” bad movie, littered with non-acting, monster effects that look worse than what’s currently available at your local Halloween superstore, and double-stacked bologna sandwiches used as weapons. It’s best to look at Troll 2 as a horror-comedy, even if the actors and Fragasso unfortunately play everything straight. Incompetent filmmaking has never been so entertainingly pitiful.
