‘Best Worst Movie’ Trolls to Theater Near You

SXSW is less than two weeks away, so it’s only appropriate that one of the cinematic champions of SXSW 2009 is making noise.

Best Worst Movie, the charming and hilarious documentary chronicling the cult phenomenon of the movie Troll 2, has been picked up by Area23A, an event-based film distribution company formed in January by industry veteran Richard Abramowitz and Kirt Eftekhar, and will receive a theatrical release.

Stephenson said “Our movie – that we have devoted the last four years to – can not be in better hands than with Area23a. They have demonstrated their ability to skillfully handle specialized films in a crowded market place. The recent success of Anvil! is only the most recent example of Richard’s expertise in theatrical film distribution.”

We got a chance to review the film and speak with Director Michael Paul Stephenson (who starred in Troll 2) during last year’s festival and his story is the perfect example of someone turning lemons into lemonade. It was one of our favorite films of the year and a must see. Be sure to look in your city for a showing of it. It’s the perfect counter-piece to a cult classic film like Troll 2.

What is your favorite cult classic film? Have you seen Troll 2 or Best Worst Movie yet?
