Wednesday, March 12's Lowdown

Wednesday's best/worst brain bombardment can be found at the Arcata Theatre Lounge where their near-weekly Sci-Fi Pint and Pizza Night slums to Troll 2. Over the years the 1990-released not-actually-a-sequel has frequently made worst-movie-of-all-time lists and is perhaps best known for the immortal overacted delivery of the line "Oh my God!" by a character about to be eaten by goblins. Your Lowdown now presents that scene in five languages below. Enjoy.

Godlin Gets Behind

I could not imagine doing anything other than watching TROLL 2 at the ATL today. Here's a fun fact: There are no trolls in TROLL 2. not a one. Lot's of goblins, though.
