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 look of the trolls in the film is influenced by painters like Theodor Kittelsen (Forest Troll; Christian Troll; Troll at the Karl Johan Street) and John Bauer (Root Trolls; Look at them, mother Troll said....). See more »

Enjoyable mockumentary-style horror.
If you don't like mockumentary style horror cinema please skip this film. Based on what the other reviews are saying you will be very unhappy.
If you can appreciate mockumentary horror it's worth it.
Troll is loosely based on Scandinavian folklore and at first glance, it seems like utter silliness. Trolls? Really? But the movie is done so well and endearing that you actually begin to really like the fact that they chose trolls to be the main focus.
It's campy, it's funny, it's kind of cheesy sometimes but its GOOD!
It's entertainment, not horror, and it knows that which is why it works. The actors, director, art direction and everything just works together in a good way.
