Torok is an ancient troll, and he is using the body of Wendy Anne to disguise himself, in order to take over an apartment building. Wendy's newly moved family is just settling in, and while her parents suspect nothing, her brother Harry notices a change in her behavior instantly. Using an emerald ring, Torok transforms the residents into plant pods and plans to restore his old world in which he once lived in many years ago. We soon discover Torok is the ex-husband of Eunice St. Clair, a resident in the building who was married to Torok long ago before he became his transformed self.

- On Wendy's wall is a poster for John Carl Buechler's previous film, Ragewar (1984).
The picture of Galwyn in his human form (before being turned into a mushroom) that Eunice St. Clair shows to Harry Potter Jr. is in reality a caricature of the film's director, John Carl Buechler.
The hero of this film is a boy named Harry Potter and he is surrounded by a fantasy world of witches, wizards and magic - eleven years before J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter novels swept the publishing world.
This is Julia Louis-Dreyfus' film debut.
The green and white hat that Harry Potter Sr. wears at the beginning of the film is from the Real Betis Balompie, a soccer team from Sevilla, Spain.
