Movie Review: 'Troll II'

MPAA Rating: PG-13

Details Rated: PG-13; Length: 95 minutes; Genres: Horror, Sci-fi and Fantasy

Ever wonder how direct-to-video movies invariably beget sequels when almost no one has heard of the original? Troll II is a sequel in name only, sharing no more than its title with the 1986 Michael Moriarty-Sonny Bono picture. Taking off in its own entirely misguided direction, it tells the story of an average (not to mention lousy-acting) American family that vacations in a town infested with Marty Allen clones who cause folks to sweat green chlorophyll and turn into trees.
