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.
Once the crew venture into the little cabin, it all reminds me of 'Saving Private Ryan', the scene where we can hear the tanks coming for a while but not seeing them? They do exactly the same with this, but it's a Troll screaming. and every time the camera zooms out of the window, you look as far as the eye can see, and hope to see the giant Troll from a long way off.
The film doesn't disappoint, and you may even find yourself feeling a little empathy for the final Troll.
See the film, believe the hype.
