I loved troll...
I hate troll 2 with a passion.

Its a personal dream of mine that one day when I get rich, pfff, that I will go back and remake any sequels that suck and pretend the original sequels never existed.

For instand, "return of the living dead" and part 2 of return of the living dead are freaking great, but all the rest are nothing but steaming piles of dog feces. I feel strongly that the directors should be beaten with sticks.

Troll 2 is terrible. Troll is awesome!
