"3.5 Stars. Unique and expertly crafted mixture of horror-camp perfection and culturally specific folklore."
"DELIVERS A CONSTANT RUSH. Wonderfully fun and somewhat more significant that 'Super 8'."
"FOLKLORE MADE ROARINGLY REAL."
"5 Stars! Sharp wit, explosive action and great humor."
"Funny and sad, mythic and thoroughly modern, Troll Hunter is a MUST-SEE for anybody who likes smart, well-written creature features."
"Makes trolls seem so real you will be afraid to go camping"
"Follows the lead of pre-eminent monster movies like Jaws and Alien… an original and highly assured fusion of B-movie lore and fairy-tale terror."
"Embellishes the candid, caught-on-video format to thrilling effect… Ovredal gives us the goods… You know the illusion is working when the characters walk into a big empty cave midway through the movie and the audience holds its collective breath."
"Rich and distinctive flavor… it always has another surprise up its sleeve… You never stop believing what you’re seeing."
"Brings new life to the genre… Breathtaking scenery and fantastic effects… If you get an opportunity to see this, TAKE IT! You will not be disappointed."
The government says there’s nothing to worry about – it’s just a problem with bears making trouble in the mountains and forests of Norway. But local hunters don’t believe it – and neither do a trio of college students who want to find out the truth. Armed with a video camera, they trail a mysterious “poacher,” who wants nothing to do with them. However, their persistence lands them straight in the path of the objects of his pursuits: trolls. They soon find themselves documenting every move of this grizzled, unlikely hero – the trollhunter – risking their lives to uncover the secrets of creatures only thought to exist in fairy tales.
