Ernest, a lovable loser who works as a summer camp handyman and dreams of becoming a guidance councilor, must find a way to inspire a group of juvenile delinquents as well as stop a shady strip mining company from closing the camp.
Life could be pretty if there wasn't someone like Ernest P. Worrell on this planet. In this movie he helps to escape an evil troll out of his grave. That's the start of the end for the world. But... Ernest wouldn't be Ernest if he wasn't planning on saving all the people. This action doesn't make it any better. It's getting worse.Written by
The pizzas seen being thrown at the bullies who try to attack the kids' tree house are re-used props from "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991)". See more »

Ernest P. Worrell:
We have nothing to fear but fear itself, plus the known fact that Old Lady Hackmore will turn us into a couple of drooling, red eyed zombies if she catches us here.

Well, nobody home, I guess they're out robbing graves or biting the heads off chickens or whatever's in Voodoo Vogue.

A group of children around halloween, have their haunted house torn down by annoying, punk bullies. The ever likable, accident-prone Ernest P. Worrell decides to build a tree fort. On a tree where a troll's tomb lies! He inadvertently releases the 200-year-old demon, that is determined to release his offspring from the tomb, by means of stealing five children and turning them into wooden dolls, until the curse of the trolls is broken. The Trolls are slimy, malicious, sovereign things. Quite a scary, dark comedy, where the troll is first seen in the eerie, dark woods where it was released and lurks through the dark, and even pops out under a bed when it seems safe. None of the adults believe Ernest or the children until the trolls terrorize the halloween party. Ernest is as funny as usual. I even got scared watching from watching it when it came out when I was 5. The last 25 minutes has Ernest and the kids eliminating the trolls with...milk! ha hah!which kind of grossed me out a couple of shots, and the adults being dragged and carried around to be tortured, with the trolls intent on destroying the world. But the last troll is indestructible, and evil and powerful, not even milk stops him..it's up to Ernest P. Worrel to be the hero of his home town. The show's definitely worth watching.
