After finally getting to see Gareth Edward’s Monsters – which is utterly brilliant on Blu-Ray (a viewing experience I can highly recommend if you are able to), I have been gagging to watch something in a similar vein. Without evening knowing it, I had already stumbled across the film I was looking for some months previous. Unfortunately it has yet to be released over in Blighty – much to my annoyance.
The film in question would be Andre Ovredal’s The Troll Hunter (or Trolljegeren for those that snakker norsk), a Mockumentary which is part The Blair Witch Project, Part Monsters. Trust me that sounds worse then it is, as this is shaping up to be a genuinely fun take on Norwegian folktales. It also seems utterly mental and self referential, finally more original films are being made. Hurrah!
Check out the trailer below and see for yourself. As for me I wait all the more impatiently the longer it takes to get released on these shores.
