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

Quotes

Thomas: In fairy tales, trolls wear clothes and talk like people - they're just like people.
Hans, trolljegeren: Fairy tales are for kids. Trolls are animals. Predators. They eat, shit and mate. Eat anything they can.
Thomas: How old can trolls get?
Hans, trolljegeren: 1000, 1200 years.
Thomas: And their intelligence level?
Hans, trolljegeren: In the pits. They are not bright. They manage to eat. But how hard is it to survive on rocks? I once saw a troll try to eat its own tail. His head down between his legs, he tried to suck down his own tail. He started gagging on it, ...

A masterpiece from Norway!
6 November 2010 | by 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!
