The ORIGINAL Harry Potter! Great Kids Horror Film!

  • Apr 8, 2004
Noah Hathaway, Michael Moriarty, Shelley Hack, Sonny Bono, Julia Louis-Dreyfus along with the incomparable June Lockhart & her real-life daughter Anne Lockhart sharing a role!
EXCELLENT PG-13 FILM for kids and adults alike.

This film has an interesting plotline, mindblowing special effects and a WONDERFUL SOUNDTRACK. Goblins, Trolls, Fairies, Elves, Witches, along with an adorable Talking Toadstool are the chief players that inhabit the underworld.

This movie will hold kids' attention & enchant them. It also features one of my very favorite poems that is recited during a family dinner. Edmund Spencer's The Faerie Queen... MAGICAL, MYSTICAL, & MEMORABLE!!!

It is bad on so many levels but so funny on many more. I can’t tell if it was a horror story laced with comedy or a comedy on its’ …

TROLL takes place in a suburban apartment complex. The Potter family (more on that later) moves in to their new home in the bottom apartment. On the day of their move Wendy Ann Potter stumbles into the laundry room where she meets a troll who kidnaps her and uses his magic ring to make himself look like Wendy. One by one, the troll enters each apartment in the complex and turns the occupants into trolls and their dwellings into doorways to a fantasy dimension. If he succeeds in changing all the …
