I mentioned it a few too many times while they were interviewing me... I must have sounded like a commercial. But i had actually brought the Rifftrax along with me, and listened to it in the theater while they showed the film. So, they noticed that and my new JoshWay-brand Manos shirt after the show, and did a quickie interview. Maybe it'll make it in... who knows~

According to Michael Stephenson (Joshua), they are going to try to interview Mike and Rich for the documentary.  I talked to him about it when they were in Atlanta for the Troll 2 screening.

From what i hear, they're still out touring with the film. Although they have begun to show up at people's Troll 2 house parties and film footage for the documentary as well. I imagine they've still got a few stops left to make, and a few interviews and cast members they want to track down before they actually begin sorting through hundred of hours of raw footage. Basically i'm guessing that we won't see the actual documentary any time soon.

But some official word from Michael would be great. Let us know what you hear Natureboy!

I also gave Michael (Joshua) the option of posting his news here.  Since he is a roundtable member, it might have more weight.

MAN I wish I could've gone to that.

If they tour again....I can say with almost certainty they will come back to Atlanta.  Darren Ewing (Arnold), George Hardy (Farmer Waits) and Michael Paul Stephenson (Joshua) all said that the ATL crowd gave the biggest pop of all the cities that had been to.  As I was getting my poster autographed, I asked Darren if he said the lively crowd spiel to every city they had been to and he said that no.....they were 1000% honest.

Here is the reply from George Hardy (Mr. Waits) about where they are in the films production:

Wow we are having a blast on the bwm doc and michael is about to come to alabama and spend a couple months here during feb and march and wind up in april for the documentary.

There is a lot of buzz now going on at sundance about our doc and also ... mgm has even asked us when it is coming out cheers george just got back from europe for the tour there we have had a lot of excitement and also great footage so far we have about 90 percent of the filming done now maybe you will be in the doc

About Nilbog Invasion

BEST WORST MOVIE and THE ALAMO ROLLING ROADSHOW are pleased to announce the most impossibly outrageous event in TROLL 2 history!

Believe it! Every conceivable person, film and creature in the entire TROLL 2 universe will be converging in NILBOG ITSELF (that’s Morgan, Utah for you no-good reality-dwellers) June 27th – 29th, 2008 for an unprecedented and never-to-be-repeated onslaught of FILMS, FOOD and GOBLIN FUN from Nilbog and all over the world! This isn’t a convention… it’s 1000% ABSOLUTE TROLL 2 INSANITY!
Screenings

All screenings will be presented by the Alamo Rolling Roadshow, a mobile movie battalion arm of Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse Cinema that has traveled the country for years providing 35mm screenings on their immense drive-in sized screen! Films will feature a cast introduction and Q&A from attending guests!

TROLL 2
(Dir. Claudio Fragasso aka “Drake Floyd”, 1990, 35mm, 95 min, PG-13) An ultra-rare second-time-anywhere-ever 35mm screening of the most neckbreakingly entertaining film in the history of trash cinema! This is the one that started The Infection and put Nilbog on the map, not to mention creating a rabid international legion of Goblins in Disguise! The ULTIMATE in no-brow excitement!

TROLL
(Dir. John Carl Buechler, 1986, 35mm, 82 min, PG-13)
Rare 35mm screening Though it admittedly doesn’t have all that much to do with TROLL 2, this was the celluloid behemoth that paved the way for all things TROLL! Diminutive threats to mankind abound in this fantastical pseudo-family adventure! As if that’s not enough, see Sonny Bono painfully transform into a magical forest

CRAWLERS a.k.a. TROLL 3
(Dir. Joe D’Amato aka “David Hills”, 1990, 35mm, 91 min, R)
First 35mm screening EVER of this extremely unofficial entry in the nebulous TROLL canon, this non-Nilbogian vegetation-based adventure concerns evil radioactive trees that use their limbs to tear apart ours! Filmed by the legendary D’Amato under one of his many pseudonyms, this film may not feature a bevy of hungry goblins, but it certainly contains enough foresty weirdness to earn its place in the TROLL family, uh, tree.

QUEST FOR THE MIGHTY SWORD a.k.a. THE HOBGOBLIN a.k.a. TROLL 3: THE SWORD OF POWER
(Dir. Joe D’Amato aka “David Hills”, 1990, 94 min, PG-13)
Incredibly rare screening of Joe D’Amato’s shoestring sword-and-sorcery epic that features an actual costume from TROLL 2 being worn by the character Grindel the Sorcerer. In fact, for this reason alone, the film was re-titled TROLL 3: THE SWORD OF POWER by its German distributor. This is also part of Italy’s successful ATOR, THE FIGHTING EAGLE series.

BEYOND DARKNESS
(Dir. Claudio Fragasso a.k.a. “Clyde Anderson”, 1990, 95 min, R)
Outrageously unheard-of screening of TROLL 2 director Claudio Fragasso’s haunted mansion epic, also released as HOUSE 5…even though HOUSE IV wouldn’t come out until two years later! This film reunited the Italian filmmaker with young TROLL 2 star Michael Stephenson, and creates an air of bizarre, unfathomable terror. No, really.

…in addition, we’ll be having several screenings of TROLL 2-related films made by and for fans of the film…including YOU! For more information, READ ON!

Double Decker
DOUBLE DECKER BALONEY SANDWICH INTERNATIONAL EAT-OFF!
Look…if you want to keep evil goblins from devouring the entire human race, you’ve gotta start chowing down on some serious baloney, AND FAST! We’re gonna have six volunteers (including one lucky cast member!) on stage to devour a WORLD RECORD SETTING amount of double-decker baloney sandwiches while saving mankind from the goblin threat!!!

Guitar Hero
GUITAR HERO COMPETITION

The documentary Best Worse Movie is "officially" being released tomorrow....at least that's according to Rotten Tomatoes (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/best_worst_movie/?cmpid=).

Problem is that it's very limited (http://bestworstmovie.com/) so far. Maybe that will change.

But here is the trailer....
