Troll Hunter (Trolljegeren)
Otto Jespersen, Robert Stoltenberg, Knut Nærum / Fiction / Norwegian
If you go down to the Norwegian woods today.
When investigating a series of unlawful bear shootings for their first student documentary, Thomas and his camera crew repeatedly run into mysterious loner Hans, who they decide to follow. Unwisely, as it happens, for Hans works for the top secret Troll Security Service, and a rogue Ringlefinch is on the loose. Andre Ovredal’s supremely effective, tense, brilliantly rendered and realised, thrill-ride mock doc (a la Blair Witch) has already been a massive hit at home, and deservedly so.
