Salt Lake City, Utah – In 1989, a film crew arrived in Morgan, Utah to create a movie - the horrifying tale of a family that becomes the target of man-eating monsters. The result was "Troll 2," widely regarded as the worst movie of all times. It went on to become a cult classic and 20 years later, the film's child star wanted to figure out why. The documentary "Best Worst Movie" opens in Salt Lake this weekend, so we're rebroadcasting our conversation with child actor turned filmmaker Michael Paul Stephenson. (Rebroadcast)
