Troll Revival

Shelley with Noah Hathaway, Michael Moriarty and Jenny Beck
in the 1986 movie Troll

Shelley starred in a trio of horror films in the late 1908s. The first of which was Troll (The Stepfather and Blind Fear came after). Released in 1986, the film was about a family that moved into an apartment building where a troll was beginning to transform its tenants into mythical creatures in an attempt to takeover the world. Since its release, the movie has gained cult classic status and tons of fans. The film was made pre-CGI and used a lot of puppet animatronics and trick shots for fantasy scenes. The movie was geared towards the younger members of the audience which explains the simplicity of the plot and the characters. And that's why the planned 3D animated revival of the film is appropriate. Entitled Troll: The Rise of Harry Potter, Jr., the new film will star Oscar winner Patricia Arquette who has signed on to voice a witch. The film is slated for release in early 2017.
