Troll Series Episode 1

The REAL origin of Harry Potter!

For the Fall 2014 Donation Series the Now Playing crew are watching films about Elves, Hobbits, Leprechauns, and Dwarfs, but one mythological little person was missing:  a troll.  While they’ve had to deal with several on the internet, Marjorie, Arnie, and Stuart have yet to encounter one on screen.  Now they rectify that with a review of the 1986 horror-comedy Troll.  Will this Gremlins rip-off work its magic on the hosts, or should it be left under a bridge?  Listen to find out!
