“By turns hilarious and heartfelt, this gem comes with my personal guarantee that it will make you smile for a week.”~Ant Timpson, New Zealand International Film Festival

Aroview: The child star of TROLL 2 steps behind the camera nearly two decades later to explore the cult phenomenon and real-life characters behind the low-budget Italian-produced horror sequel regularly dubbed "the worst movie ever made."

Prompted to investigate why this forgotten Z-grader has suddenly found a new lease of life as a cult favourite, Stephenson tracks down his fellow amateur cast and crew members whose 'normal' lives then become variously impacted by the belated, obscure limelight. The heavily ironic premise makes this a unique and fascinating show business artefact that indeed turns out to be endlessly more valuable and entertaining than the film that inspired it.
