%%* CultClassic
* FreudWasRight (or VisualInnuendo):
** Creedence seduces Brent with an ear of corn, and popcorn was flying everywhere, filling up the trailer. Oddly, the corn is used in a distinctly non-phallic way.
** And let's not even get into the Freudian/Lacanian connotations of Joshua seeing the [[{{Theatre/Hamlet}} ghost of a male progenitor]] in the ''mirror''.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: After watching the documentary about the film (''Best Worst Movie'') and learning some of the fates of the cast, making fun of some of the actors loses some of its enjoyment. It's somewhat balanced out by [[EarnYourHappyEnding others in the cast having stable, productive lives]]... somewhat.
* HarsherInHindsight: The reverend of Nilbog's cult-like church bears an uncanny resemblance to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Koresh David Koresh]], the leader of the Branch Davidian cult that was assaulted during the Waco Siege, which the film preceded by three years. Even more harsh is the fact that he ends up [[spoiler: being killed by being set on fire by the family]].
* HilariousInHindsight: [[{{Twilight}} Meat-eating "vegetarians,"]] you say?
* GeniusBonus: Probably unintentional, but there are quite a few echoes of Christina Rossetti's poem "Literature/GoblinMarket" present, particularly in how the goblins try to corrupt people by feeding them plant matter, and how homoerotic expressions of family values are the solution to defeating them. In both works, the goblins seem to represent an outsider threat to the status quo.
* HollywoodHomely: Creedence is probably supposed to be an ugly old woman. [[HelloNurse She's not]].
* [[{{Memes/Film}} Memetic Mutation]][=/=][[{{Narm/Film}} Narm]]: Oh dear God, it's ''everywhere''!
-->'''Arnold''': They're eating her! And then they're going to eat me! [[BigOMG OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDD!]]
-->'''Michael''': You can't piss on [[SacredHospitality hospitality]]! I WON'T ALLOW IT! -- ''after Joshua urinates over the food on the dinner table.''
-->'''Joshua''': [[ItMakesSenseInContext They were trying to feed me ice cream so they could eat me later.]]
-->'''Joshua''': Nilbog! It's goblin spelled backwards!
** A double example can be found during the sermon at the Church. It's funny enough hearing the Preacher hammily ranting about "smelly bladders", but look carefully at the General Store Owner when hemorrhoids are mentioned. He puts his hands between his legs and squeezes them together.
* HoYay: Drew sees Elliot and Brent sleeping in the same bed, with their shirts off.
-->'''Elliot''' (''after Holly [[GroinAttack hits him in the groin]]''): Are you trying to turn me into a homo?\\
'''Holly''': It wouldn't be ''too'' hard!
** The film also [[YouKeepUsingThatWord seems to believe]] that "homosexuality" and "castration" are synonymous.
** The entire plot thread regarding Drew's quest for milk (it would be milk, wouldn't it?) is laced with a disturbing, pseudo-rapacious homoerotica.
** Elliot and his friends' relationship seems to consist entirely of HaveIMentionedIAmHeterosexualToday, which is sort of negated by them running around in their underwear, sharing beds, and not being able to be without each other even for a couple days.
* LesYay: Creedence tells the mom that she finds Holly to be "appetizing" and "provocative." Strangely, the mom doesn't really react to this.
** And neither does Holly.
--->'''Creedence''': Hello, beautiful.
--->'''Holly''': Hi. (Leaves without another word.)
%%* NarmCharm
* NightmareRetardant: See, the notion of people turning into plants ''could'' have been A-Grade BodyHorror. But the effects are pretty bad and the dialogue is even worse, so it's hard to care.
* {{Padding}}: The sequence where Creedence begs for more power, turns into a HotWitch, then completely wastes her new powers seducing minor secondary character Brent with a corncob. She uses up her powers, doesn't even kill the guy, and none of this has any relevance to the rest of the movie whatsoever.
* SequelDisplacement: [[DolledUpInstallment It's not really a sequel at all]], but even so, you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who could tell you much about the "first" ''Troll''.
* SignatureLine: "They're eating her! And then they're going to eat me! OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!"
** Especially since the ridiculous dialogue and poor acting mean the {{Narm}} can be appreciated even out of context
%%* SpecialEffectsFailure
* SoBadItsGood: So so much.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Everyone but Creedence, who clearly knows what kind of movie she is in, and is [[HamAndCheese throughly enjoying herself]].
