Dollar Bin Film - "Troll 3"

People from a small town are attacked by evil radioactive tree roots growing in the forest.

This film should the award for "Most Names" (and thats probably the ONLY award it should get). It was originally known as Troll 3, but it may also be called Creepers, Contamination .7, or The Crawlers. Ok, what movie needs 4 names? I mean if the movie was good, I wouldn't care if it Puff-Diddy-ed it's name a bit....but it's not. Troll 2 was at least funny and made me laugh at it's ridiculousness, this movie did absolutely nothing for me. There was nothing campy, nothing memorable, nothing funny, and most importantly, nothing scary about this film. Everything about it, the acting, the effects, the story, was boring, dull, and it all seemed a bit lazy to me. I will say there were a couple of cool 80's style gore scenes, but not enough to carry the movie on. Put it this way, If Troll 3 were a drink, it would be water. It's not sweet, not sour, just...water. And in the world of horror films, water ain't gonna cut it.

P.S. There are NO Trolls in this film.

with a title like "The Crawlers" you would expect some creepy critters and Trolls but it sucks that there isn't shit like that at all :(

Nice review. I've never had the pleasure of seeing this...Super-rare, of course. And that cover art is just awesome.
