Ah, Troll 2. That masterpiece of bad cinema. It's one of those movies that's so bad, it's good. It's also a movie that will stick with you for years to come. One of the reasons it's so memorable is because of the...um, unique characters. Especially Credence Leonore Gielgud (of ancient Druidic origins). Played by Deborah Reed, Credence was the leader of the goblins. Or the townsfolk. Or both? Are the townsfolk all goblins? Who the hell knows?
Anyway, we were fortunate enough in this episode to get Deborah Reed on the phone and interview her about her character and her experiences making such a memorable film. If you haven't seen Troll 2 yet, do it now. We'll be here when you get back.
After the interview, Derek (who you've heard from our many Eclipse Phase games) joins Ryan and Meyer to talk about their favorite experiences from New York Comic Con 2012 (Erik, Ed and Alex couldn't make it, mostly because of a combination of lack of funds and suckitude).
So take a listen to this extra spooky Halloween episode of Rag-NERD-rok. And sorry for the delay, folks. Blame that bitch, Sandy.

I. Cold Open: Beware the Were-Clam (00:00:00)
Sometimes the stories people tell about the monster at the old beach are actually true...
II. Interview with Deborah Reed (00:03:50)
The wonderful Deborah Reed graced us with an interview for this episode. She spoke to us about how she got her role in Troll 2, what it was like to film and what she thought of the movie, which was the subject of a documentary called "Best Worst Movie."
If you're a fan of Deborah, be sure to check her out on Facebook. You can also check out the work of Deborah's son, Gavin (who was also in Troll 2!) at http://gavinreed.com.
III. New York Comic Con talk (00:44:30)
Ryan, Meyer and Derek talk about their favorite parts of NYCC 2012. It was Derek's first time going to all three days of a convention, and he learned just how crazy NYCC can get on Saturday when there are 116,000 people in the Javits Center. Meyer learned that he is a pretty good archer, and Ryan learned that he definitely is not.
IV. Outro (01:04:32)
We would like to thank Deborah Reed again for talking us. Getting a peek behind the Troll 2 curtain was certainly interesting. And don't forget to be careful when eating ancient Druidic cheesecake. It may be really delicious, but it's loaded with calories and magic that will turn you into a plant.
