The Trollhunter is a subtitled Norwegian film that's a little bit cloverfield, a little bit Blair With Project. If you dislike shaky cam first person flicks, you may not love it. But I did! I was excited to see it when I saw the trailer come out awhile back & was delighted to find & watch it on Comcast On Demand over the weekend.
The movie starts up with a 3 person student film crew trying to track down a man they, & other hunters, believes to be a Bear poacher. Bears that have been shot seem to be turning up around Norway, the few hunters who have licensees to shoot bears aren't shooting them, & this strange man named Hans seems to be around when they're shot. So, the students find Hans & try & find out for themselves.
They follow Hans into the woods one night & are attacked by...something. Hans comes out of the woods & yells, "Troll!", & then we're off to the races.
The CGI trolls are really well done & Hans is great as the reluctant title character. Even if, in the grand scheme of things in this flick, the actual time that the trolls are on screen are few & far between, the way the movie uses real world situations & landscapes as evidence of trolls doesn't make the parts in between the Troll hunting drag.
And the end is @#%^ing epic. Great movie, if you like monster movies I'd highly recommend it.
