''Troll'' is a 1986 [[BMovie B-Movie]] about [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Torok]], the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Troll]] (no relation to {{ComicBook/Turok}} or [[{{Belgariad}} Torak]]). Directed by JohnCarlBuechler, this was misbranded as a horror movie, but it shares far more aspects with the UrbanFantasy genre, and in fact it works better when viewed as such.

It's worth noting that this movie '''has no sequels'''. The SoBadItsGood ''Film/{{Troll 2}}'' is actually an Italian movie with no relation whatsoever to it, and has goblins instead of trolls. The two ''Troll 3'' movies (original names being ''Film/{{Creepers}}'' and ''Film/QuestForTheMightySword'', respectively) are even less related; the first has no humanoid creatures or magic whatsoever, instead featuring radioactive plants, while the later does feature a few trolls/goblins/whatever but it was meant to be part of the [[Film/TheBladeMaster Ator]] series.

* Really700YearsOld: Eunice. Notably, she can look younger than she does (and does do so once she goes hunting for Torok) but she chooses to look like an old woman (although significantly younger than the centuries she must be)

* DeadpanSnarker: Eunice



* PetTheDog: Torok does care about the little girl, and so [[spoiler: he kills the demon/gagoyle thing mentioned above]]. He also [[spoiler: turns a person suffering from cancer into an elf]].

* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Turok-as-Wendy will often do and say things that are very bizarre for a young girl to say and do (generally when around Malcolm), but no one aside from Harry Jr. seems to notice
