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

A painting by Theodor Kittelsen based on the Soria Moria Castle fairy story is used as a backdrop on one of the trips they do in the film (Thomas stands in the same pose and asks his friends "Do I look like that famous painting?"). See more »

We are in troll territory now. You don't seem to like entering these territories. Is there some particular reason?
There was a mountain troll territory up in Strynefjell. Back in the 70's they decided to build tunnels through that troll-rich area. Both the TSS and I tried to object, but to no avail. I was given the task of going in and exterminating all the trolls. Every last one. Pregnant females. Kids. Newborns that hadn't even learned to walk. It was a massacre.

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.
