Product Description

Whilst investigating a series of suspicious bear killings, a group of students track a mysterious 'hunter' who wants nothing to do with them and attempts to shake them off his trail. Sheer persistence leads the group right to the prey he is trying to hunt which they soon learn are far more dangerous and mystical creatures than mere bears.

Troll Hunter is a thrilling and wildly entertaining ride where secrets are uncovered thought only to exist in fairy tales.

Special Features:

  • Trailer
  • Deleted scenes
  • Improvs and bloopers
  • Extended scenes
  • Visual effects
  • Behind the scenes

From Amazon.co.uk

The Norwegian comedy-fantasy Troll Hunter, a surprise art-house hit across the globe, posits an intriguing question--what if monsters of folklore and popular culture existed, but were kept hidden by the government?--and delivers the results in a clever, faux-documentary format that underscores both the special effects and the satire. Controversial comedian Otto Jespersen is the title character, a world-weary, working-class stiff assigned by a bureaucratic agency to track and eliminate dangerous trolls from the Scandinavian countryside. The lack of respect and notoriety afforded by his job convinces Jespersen to allow a naive collegiate film crew to follow him on his hunts, which nicely balance quirky humour with genuine moments of suspense and some impressive CGI special effects for the trolls. Genre fans' appreciation for the "shaky-cam" subgenre (The Blair Witch Project, [REC], Cloverfield) will undoubtedly affect how they feel about Troll Hunter--the film's light comedy will certainly be lost on those unwilling to either believe or tolerate the idea of another film comprised of "found footage." But more forgiving viewers will be thankful for the rather seamless incorporation of the CGI trolls, all imaginatively rendered as part fairy-tale image and part biological specimen, into live-action scenes, as well as the dryly humourous satire of government "special projects." Pacing is also occasionally an issue--though beautiful, the Norwegian landscape receives far too much coverage--but for the patient, Troll Hunter is a unique and clever experience. --Paul Gaita

When bears are found dead in Norway, the students of the Volda University Thomas, Johanna and the cameraman Kalle decide to investigate.

They stalk the trailer of mysterious hunter Hans expecting to find an explanation for the killings.

The reluctant Hans tries to flee from the youngsters, but he agrees that they film him in action provided the follow his orders.

Sooner the trio of students learns that Hans is actually a troll hunter that works for a secret government agency.

Several dangerous trolls have escaped from their territory and Hans is assigned to eliminate them...

First off, I didn't think that this was a guy looking for every Blu Ray copy of one of the worst films ever made, and secondly I didn't think for one moment it would be as god as what it's been made out to be.

How wrong can I be? From the upstart, this film is probably the most fun 'found footage' movie mad since the first one, and for me, it's more entertaining than the Blair Witch, because the film isn't out to be the scariest movie ever, it wants to be the Spielberg of Found Footage, and almost manages it.

The cast are all having a ball here, and once we finally see what we have been wanting to see, it doesn't disappoint, and turns it into one of the greatest movie events of 2011.

It's as if the director ups the ante for the trolls each time we meet a new one, like a video game, they get that little bit more difficult as the film progresses.

There are sub-plots to do with rabies and the government, and a brilliant nod to the 'The three Billy Goats Gruff', but then there is the ending.

The buzz around this film means that it is a must see for any serious `world cinema' fan, so I finally got to see it. I was not expecting too much, but was really impressed by this little gem from Norway. It is a dark fantasy told as a mockumentary from `found tapes. It tells of a group of students from Volda College, who have heard about an illegal bear hunter. They decide as part of their project that they will interview him and maybe even get some action shots.

They track down Hans (played brilliantly by Norwegian comedian Otto Jespersen) who is less than willing to talk to him. He drives a customised Land Rover that is so beaten up it would get a Vehicle Rectification Notice if my local Constabulary saw it on the road. So the plucky youngsters decide that they will follow him when he goes out at night. What they run into is given away by the title of the film and Hans decides to let them film him and the Fairy Tale Troll hunts as he is sick of the job.

What happens along the way is a story of how the group survive whilst tracking down rogue trolls. So is it any good? Well I absolutely loved it, it is done in chronological order as the tapes were found and is supposed to be a `rough cut', so it can jump around, but it adds to the authenticity of the thing that there are so many cuts. Obvious comparisons to `The Blair Witch Project' are fine, but this is way better than that. The special effects are good to amazing and the folklore around trolls is brilliant, we even get all the science as to why they either blow up or turn to stone when exposed to sunlight, and the whole blood of a Christian thing is thrown into the mix too.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is a marvellous tongue in cheek fantasy. This "mockumentary" presumes to expose a terrible secret in its native country, Norway, namely that the Norwegian government is culpable for covering up the existence of giant trolls in the wilderness. The mockumentary is derived from the found footage of three university film-makers, who have gone missing, and comprises film taken by the students with handheld cameras, proving the existence of these trolls. The content is frequently hilarious, showing the haphazard efforts of the students to trace these mythical beings, and the mayhem which ensues whenever a troll turns up. The trolls are huge, predatory, and exceptionally dumb, they live in caves and the woods, and prey on sheep and tourists. Their lack of intelligence sometimes makes it quite easy for professional troll hunters to trap them, and one of these professionals assists the students with their search for the beasts, with sometimes startling results. The CGI for the trolls is brilliant, they look both suitably scary and sometimes dumbfounded by what's going on around them. This is a Norwegian movie with subtitles, but that didn't detract from my enjoyment of the film. The script is first rate, the camerawork imaginative, and the film generally has an exuberance and sense of fun which gets you hooked from the opening shots. Brilliant fun.

I must say, I'm a big fan on the POV (point of view) movie movement recently taking hold of current movies ever since the Blair Witch Project phenomenom, some of the best include Cloverfield, REC 1 and 2, Paranormal activity and others and it seems the filming technique is in full swing as Norwegians take their try at the forumala with devastastingly good results.
Seeing as this wasn't a full blown hollywood production, this really did feel much more stable than most theatre movies as it had it's ground in terms of plot, character development and most definitely the CGI used.
I won't give anything away other than the fact that you MUST see this movie, put your headphones on, lights off and prepare to be entertained, humoured, scared and shocked as The Troll Hunter takes you through a mystical journey that may never again be seen by cinema. Of course like every movie it has it's negative and positive factors and I think they could have snipped it down to give the story a better flow and over pacier experience but this really is going to be one of those LOVE or HATE movies, it's definitely not for everyone.
Suggest reading up on some Norwegian folk lore and getting into the spirit before starting this up as you there are many references and hidden jokes that make this that little bit more enjoyable.
8/10
