``Best Worst Movie''


The film society kicks off its 2010-11 season with the documentary ``Best Worst Movie'' 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 17, at the downtown Coliseum Theater.

In 1989, a group of unknown actors in Utah starred in what would be crowned the worst movie of all time ``Troll 2.'' After two decades of running from this cinematic disaster, the cast can no longer hide from a legion of followers that celebrate them for their ineptitude.

Best Worst Movie, directed by one of the actors in the film, Michael Paul Stephenson, unravels the stories of these unforgettable real-life characters and the colorful army of devotees who continue to revel in the film's perfectly flawed brilliance. At the center is an Alabama small-town dentist-turned cult movie icon, and the Italian movie director who hasn't come to terms with his internationally revered cinematic failure.

See the trailer:

Tickets are $8 at Old Harbor Books.

Thanks so much to Shaleece Haas for traveling all the way up to Sitka to show her terrific film ``Old People Driving'' last month, and thanks to all who attended. A copy of the DVD will soon be available at Kettleson Memorial Library, as will ``Feast & Sacrifice.'' ``Hunt for the Red Devil'' is available on line.
