After a nuclear power plant dumps hazardous waste into a forest surrounding a small town, people begin dying in increasingly gruesome ways.

People cannot pinpoint the source of the deaths, until the EPA investigates, proving that the forests’ roots had mutated due to the waste, beginning to kill and eat people. The plants attempt to break loose, however, the EPA arrives again and bulldozes the plants, killing them, leaving the possibility that some more plants may have survived…


Like Troll 2, Troll 3 has no plot connection to the original Troll, features no trolls, and is also a horror film, not fantasy-comedy. The film has none of the original cast, nor storyline continuation, from either Troll film. An early script was apparently written with the original cast in mind. In one scene in a bar, a banjo-centric song from Troll 2 can be heard in the background.

“If you’ve got some like-minded friends that love to make fun of bad movies, then order up a pizza, get the beer flowing and have fun with this one. Or if you’re like me and you can count the amount of friends willing to subject themselves to this level of cinematic cheese on one finger, then order that pizza (get extra cheese… treat yourself!) and your favorite beverage and make it a bad movie night.” Midnight Cinephile

“Attacking the performances is pointless — these people know how bad they are, and given the script they’re forced to work with, I can’t exactly blame them. The special effects, meanwhile, are almost nonexistent; watching the villainous roots in action is quite a sight to see, particularly during the film’s chaotic, nonsensical finale.” Bloody Good Horror


“To put it simply: There is nothing fun here. The movie has no nudity, no gore (apart from a quick scene where a character gets a root into his mouth and having it exit through his eye but it is so poorly made that it doesn’t really matter), no exploitative materials at all. It is just… Dull. I can’t even see it working when watching it with friends over a case of beer. It is that bad. A major avoid.” Rubber Monster Fetishism

Contamination .7 was directed by Joe D’Amato, but don’t let that get your hopes up. Unfortunately, it’s light on gore and features none of the sleaze you’d expect from one of his films. The dialogue scenes are boring as heck and the plant attacks are all pretty bogus. (The effects, as expected, are p*ss-poor.)” The Video Vacuum
