Help identifying a horror movie for a friend

posting for a friend-

he says the movie takes place in a town where green monsters (who may at one time have been people) sare eating families, but the town is hiding the monsters. Eventually they think the problem is finished but a boy walks in his house to hear a noise and notice a ball coming down the stairs that says something along the lines of "mommy was delicious"


That is all he can remember from when he saw it as a kid. He thinks it is from the 80s, I was upset that I didn't have any idea at all, and so far my search has come up empty. Any help would be great. Thanks!

That is the closest I could find, but I'm not totally sure. If you also thought it might be, it could be worth a shot to have him check it out. I appreciate your taking the time to help me out!

I'm almost positive it's Troll 2. The movie ends with the little boy walking downstairs and finding out that his mom is being eaten by goblins (there isn't a single troll in the film). Horrible film, but great entertainment value.

You can't piss on hospitality.. CAUSE I WONT ALLOW IT!!

It is, without a doubt, Troll 2. It was filmed here in Utah. I was at the Tower Theater when they had the cast reunion screening, that they filmed for the Best Worst Movie documentary.
