Film: The Troll Hunter
Bears are being blamed for attacks on cattle in Norway but when a mysterious tracker shows up a group of students ask him if they can tag along and film what happens. They get a lot more than they expect.
It transpires that Hans is a professional Troll Hunter and the government have been keeping their existence hidden from the public.
This Norwegian film breathes new life into the "found footage" genre and also works as a monster movie. The Trolls themselves come in all shapes and sizes and while they reminded me of The Flumps (UK kids tv show) the film remains captivating and has some great moments of tension, like when the group find themselves trapped in a Troll's cave.
It's not up there with Rare Exports (see review elsewhere here) but fans of that film are sure to enjoy it.
