Storyline

When bears are found dead in Norway, the students of the Volda University Thomas, Johanna and the cameraman Kalle decide to investigate. They stalk the trailer of the mysterious hunter Hans expecting to find an explanation for the killings. The reluctant Hans tries to flee from the youngsters, but he agrees that they film him in action provided they follow his orders. Sooner the trio of students learns that Hans is actually a troll hunter that works for a secret government agency. Further, several dangerous trolls have escaped from their territory and Hans is assigned to eliminate them. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

There are two ferry routes from Volda: one north-west to Lauvstad, one south-west to Folkestad. The protagonists drive their vehicles onto the Lauvstad ferry, but shortly afterward cross into the next county on the E39, which is the road leading south from Folkestad. See more »

Quotes

Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg: [Speaking at a televised press conference] Few people find power grids attractive. I certainly don't. Norwegians are pro-electricity, but against power lines. That won't work in the long run. Norway has trolls, so more power lines are needed. That's just the way it is.

A masterpiece from Norway!
6 November 2010 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

The Trollhunter mixes comedy,horror,brilliant special-effects,Norwegian fairy tales and our beautiful nature in an excellent way.Otto Jespersen fits perfect in the role as the Trollhunter.

The Trollhunter made me interested and curious from the beginning to the end. It's not just a movie with plenty of action and gore.Along you get good and funny explanations of things you might wonder of. The movie was filmed with a hand-held camera and that worked very well.The Trollhunter is also quite innovative.The Cloverfield,Rec and The Blair Witch Project are all in the same category, but I think that The Trollhunter has something more than those movies.They who made the movie claims namely that Trolls do exist in the woods of Norway.

The Trollhunter will definitely be a cult-classic!
