It’s 2002. You’re in a Sharper Image. You’re getting over a recent break-up. Phil Collins’ brand new comeback album, “Testify,” comes on over the speakers. You remain uninspired.

LSP 17: Not “The Room”
Today, Ben and Alex tackle the garbage behemoth that is “Troll 2,” a cult classic horror written and directed by Claudio Fragasso. “The Room” has been getting all the attention as of late, but we should never forget this scrappy contender for best worst movie ever made.
