30 terrible movies saved by great endings 1

One of the bad movies with good endings in the genre of horror comedy, Troll 2 was marketed as a sequel to the 1986 movie Troll even though the two don’t really have a connection. Directed by Claudio Fragasso, Trolls 2 centers on a vacationing family who discovers that the entire town they’re visiting is inhabited by goblins. Disguised as humans, the goblins turn humans into a pile of green goop before eating them.

Troll 2 was criticized for its terrible script, acting, special effects, and musical score, but its ending is just too silly and stupid not to love. In the third act of the movie, the protagonist, a young boy named Joshua (Michael Stephenson) believes that he has defeated the goblins through some kind of anti-troll boulder. But in a twist ending, the boy finds a baseball with the message “Yummy! Mom is so good!” written in green goo. When he runs to the kitchen, he finds the goblins casually eating his mom.
