A group of students investigates a series of mysterious bear killings, but learns that there are much more dangerous things going on. They start to follow a mysterious hunter, learning that he is actually a troll hunter.
The pathetic surgeon Simon Thorne suffers from paranoia, obsessions and hallucinations, and loses both his wife and his job. But then he meets a couple from one of his dreams where they kill him. So he has to kill them first.
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

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 Kalle mentions an eating competition, a reference to the story "Askeladden". See more »
Title cards at the beginning say the hard disk with the footage was received on October 13, 2008. The TST form that Hans fills in the diner was dated October 9, 2009. See more »
When I watch movies, I let them sink in a bit, so I can speak about them without any feelings. This movie, without doubt, was one of the best "lost tape" genre films I've ever watched.
I really liked the story-line, and how well the film stays half document genre. The build up is a bit long, but its worth the waiting. I had no problem with the actors, some are casual, but some really do their best. I loved the special effects, it was a quality work, plus all the trolls looked unique.
Which I didn't like was the causal ending. The movie has a unique story line IMHO. I recommend it. 7/10
