Storyline

When bears are found dead in Norway, students from Volda University, Thomas, Johanna and cameraman Kalle, decide to investigate. They stalk the trail of the mysterious hunter Hans expecting to find an explanation for the killings. The reluctant Hans tries to flee from the youngsters, but then agrees to let them film him in action, provided they follow his orders. Soon the trio of students learns that Hans is actually a troll hunter working 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

Trivia

The film contains several references to old Scandinavian folklore. For example, the goats on a bridge and a troll under it are a reference to the "Three Billy Goats Gruff". At one point Thomas mentions an eating competition, a reference to the story "Askeladden". See more »

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

Hans, trolljegeren: Those may look like normal power lines, but they're electric fences to keep the trolls at bay.

District 9 meets Black Sheep and REC (Spanish film that "Quarantine" was based on)
14 February 2011 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

Its Awesome! See it ASAP. This film is full of excellent Norwegian folklore. Its Part comedy/horror/action adventure all wrapped up in one sweet film....Its more comedy then anything. The premise seems so cheesy but its actually really entertaining. Its not perfect, at times it does seem to drag on. But the cinematography is great. At times it feels like a BBC special highlighting the scenic Norwegian fjords. It actually looks a lot like the Puget Sound here in Washington. but I gave it a 10 for originality which seems to be lacking these days. The special Effects look really good and the jerky documentary style is not nauseating like Blair witch. I recommend everyone to rent it when it comes out (don't torrent it like me) We need more Norwegian films distributed in the US! After watching this I think I will check out the Finnish film: "Rare exports". Its about another common Scandinavian character: Santa claus

Oh yeah, they smell Christian blood! lol
