Troll 2

A leading candidate for worst movie ever made, this cheapo horror flick by Claudio Fragasso was originally called “Goblins,” but when it went straight to video in 1990, it was repackaged as a sequel to the earlier and completely unrelated Troll (1986). The clumsy acting, laughable effects, and idiotic plot (marauding forest goblins try to turn a vacationing family into edible green goo) have won the movie a cult following whose believers insist it's so bad it's good. That may be so—there are certainly some derisive laughs to be had here—but life is short, and I can think of a lot more movies so good they're good.
