Troll 2 Child Star Michael Stephenson set to direct DESTROY

Movie by Joey Paur

Michael Stephenson is best known for his role in the 1990's cult classic film Troll 2. His experience in making Troll 2 led him to direct the documentary Best Worst Movie. Stephenson is now ready to get started on his first feature film, a dark comedy called Destroy, and I think your going to love the premis.

In the story, vampires don't exist, but that doesn't stop a well-intentioned would-be vampire hunter from leaving a trail of blood-splattered wooden stakes across Bavaria. But while he thinks he's saving the world, he is mistakenly murdering sweet, innocent old men.

Ha! Ha! I love the concept of this film! It's going to be a hilariously awesome dark tale of death. I can't help but be excited about the movie, it has the makings of a cult classic, which I think is what Stephenson is going for. 

THR reports that the "script was co-written by Zack Carlson and Bryan Connolly, programmer of Austin's Alamo Drafthouse Cinema; the two became friends when Troll 2 played at Drafthouse."

Destroy will shoot in Eastern Europe and is currently in the early stages of casting. In a statement, Stephenson had this to say,

I was embarrassed by this movie [Troll 2] my whole life. But now, a lot of good has come from being in one of the worst movies ever made.
