Horror/Fantasty/Comedy Rated PG-13
Torok is an ancient troll, and he is using the body of Wendy Anne to disguise himself, in order to take over an apartment building. Wendy's newly moved family is just settling in, and while her parents suspect nothing, her brother Harry notices a change in her behavior instantly. Using an emerald ring, Torok transforms the residents into plant pods and plans to restore his old world in which he once lived in many years ago. We soon discover Torok is the ex-husband of Eunice St. Clair, a resident in the building who was married to Torok long ago before he became his transformed self.
Nothing stand out as good or bad here, despite the reputation of its sequel. It does however feature the film debut of Julia Louis-Dreyfus
A movie that had a decent enough premise, that was very much reminiscent of a crappy made for TV kids flick. The premise however never really goes anywhere just turns into a sometimes boring, occasionally entertaining movie. Also semi-remembered for that fact that its main character are Harry Potter and Harry Potter JR., despite the movie coming out, long before the books did. Certainly not a movie you have to see, however it did spawn a sequel "Troll 2", which should be viewed by all bad movie fans.
