#11 – Countdown to Halloween: THE STUFF

The Stuff is a wonderful B-movie-esque film. It was directed by Larry Cohen – who wrote and/or directed such films as Q: the Winged Serpent, Maniac Cop and the It’s Alive films – and stars Michael Moriarty (Troll).

It is about a strange white substance that some miners find bubbling from the ground. It tastes delicious and is subsequently marketed as a dessert, like ice cream. But it isn’t. It’s a living thing that takes over the minds of those that eat it, making then addicted to it, until it controls them completely – zombie like.

#31 – Countdown to Halloween: TROLL

Troll – directed by John Carl Buechler (Friday the 13th Part VII) – was released in 1986.  It actually featured a relatively accomplished cast: Noah Hathaway (Battlestar Galactica & The NeverEnding Story) and Michael Moriarty (The Stuff) play father and son – ‘Harry Potter Sr.’ and ‘Harry Potter Jr.’

Also living in their building are Sonny Bono, Phil Fondacaro (Willow), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Seinfeld), Brad Hall (SNL), and June Lockhart (Lost In Space). Not bad for a B movie…

(Somewhat) Breaking Troll News! “Troll 3” Imminent!

Michael Stephenson is the director of Best Worst Movie, a documentary film about the making of the film Troll 2, which he was also the star of.

In a recent interview with Collider he talked a little about the oft rumored Troll 3 – or ‘Troll 2: 2’ as it should probably be called, seeing as how ‘Troll 2’ has no real connection with Troll, beyond the name.

Claudio Fragasso – the original Troll 2 director – has a script and is working with Italian producers in getting it financed. Plus they want all the original cast. This has apparently put Stephenson in a dilemma, as he says…

If someone writes a check and says, “Make this movie”, it’ll happen.  If Claudio was able to get Troll 2 made, I have every reason to believe he can make this happen, too.  I can absolutely understand why someone would be like, “Naturally!  Let’s make a sequel!”  But two, do I think it’s right to make a sequel?  No.  My feeling right now is, anything in addition to what he made is unnecessary.  I just don’t see…I guess my question is, why?

In other Troll news: John Carl Buechler – director of the original 1986 ‘Troll’ film – is set to remake Troll with a planned 2012 release date. It’s rumored it will star Harrison Bliss and Ali Lohan.
