NO DISCERNIBLE RELATION TO TROLL 2!! New York is a grimy, cruddy place filled with grimy, cruddy surprises, but nothing could be more unexpected than an apartment building infested with hairy dwarves bent on opening the gateway to a magical parallel dimension. Horror luminary Michael Moriarty (Q THE WINGED SERPENT, THE STUFF) plays family man Harry Potter (!), who joins his son Harry Potter Jr (!!) on a life-threatening adventure through the seedy Brooklyn underbelly of mythical fantasy. In addition to cooing sentient mushrooms and a chorus of singing trolls, the film features Julia Louis-Dreyfus of SEINFELD fame frolicking naked through the ivy. But it’s never all sunshine and rainbows where trolls are concerned; especially for inadequate swinger Sonny Bono, who runs afoul of the wee beasts and is turned into a giant lumpy cucumber and then a forest. Tough break, but anyone stupid enough to follow the beckoning finger of a naked hairy spud deserves whatever they get. (Zack)
