"3.5 Stars. Unique and expertly crafted mixture of horror-camp perfection and culturally specific folklore."

-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"DELIVERS A CONSTANT RUSH. Wonderfully fun and somewhat more significant that 'Super 8'."

-Eric Kohn, Indiewire

"FOLKLORE MADE ROARINGLY REAL."

-Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

"5 Stars! Sharp wit, explosive action and great humor."

-Movie Jungle

"Funny and sad, mythic and thoroughly modern, Troll Hunter is a MUST-SEE for anybody who likes smart, well-written creature features."

-Io9

"Makes trolls seem so real you will be afraid to go camping"

-Wired

"Follows the lead of pre-eminent monster movies like Jaws and Alien… an original and highly assured fusion of B-movie lore and fairy-tale terror."

-David Rooney, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"Embellishes the candid, caught-on-video format to thrilling effect… Ovredal gives us the goods… You know the illusion is working when the characters walk into a big empty cave midway through the movie and the audience holds its collective breath."

-Peter Debruge, VARIETY

"Rich and distinctive flavor… it always has another surprise up its sleeve… You never stop believing what you’re seeing."

-Michael Gingold, FANGORIA

"Brings new life to the genre… Breathtaking scenery and fantastic effects… If you get an opportunity to see this, TAKE IT! You will not be disappointed."

-Calebson, DREAD CENTRAL

About The Film

The government says there’s nothing to worry about – it’s just a problem with bears making trouble in the mountains and forests of Norway. But local hunters don’t believe it – and neither do a trio of college students who want to find out the truth. Armed with a video camera, they trail a mysterious “poacher,” who wants nothing to do with them. However, their persistence lands them straight in the path of the objects of his pursuits: trolls. They soon find themselves documenting every move of this grizzled, unlikely hero – the trollhunter – risking their lives to uncover the secrets of creatures only thought to exist in fairy tales.
