Troll Hunter (2010)
AroView: Three college kids who set out to make a documentary about illegal bear hunters encounter more than bargained for in this thrilling Norwegian mockumentary.
After a familiar set up, this eventually shakes off its debt to BLAIR WITCH-inspired projects with its well-rounded yet nicely tongue-in-cheek dissertation of Norwegian folklore, and some superb visual effects dedicated to maximum ‘credibility’. Equally spectacular are the landscapes (not unlike our own Fiordland), which are used extensively and integrated well into the action.
“Delivers an earnest fantasy adventure bathed in Nordic spirit and folklore that captures the heart, as well as the imagination.” ~ Lisa Giles-Keddie, Real.com
