TROLL HUNTER (2011) [feature]

Norway (MIFF 2011 , Night Shift)
Director: André Øvredal

"Embellishes the candid, caught-on-video format to thrilling effect." - Variety

Forget Sasquatch or Area 51, for years the Norweigan government has been involved in the biggest cover-up the world has ever known - or rather, not known. Not just made-up stories to keep Scandinavian children awake at night, the mythical troll exists, and Norway has its own program to keep troll numbers down, for the safety of everyone.

Now, a trio of documentary filmmakers have stumbled upon a man whose job it is to keep the Godzilla-sized trouble-makers at bay - and they're in for a bumpy ride.

Like The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield, this through-the-lens mockumentary packs plenty of frantic fun and humour into a gripping exposé of a creature once believed to be the stuff of fairy tales.
