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. But 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 Troll Hunter — risking their lives to uncover the secrets of creatures only thought to exist in fairy tales.

From Norwegian writer/director André Øvredal comes TROLLHUNTER, a thrillingly entertaining creature feature filled with harrowing suspense — and the darkest of humor. Filmed in the stunningly beautiful countryside of Norway, from fjords to forests, TROLLHUNTER tells the story of a veteran hunter — and fed-up government employee — as he reveals the world of beasts known only to Norwegians in stories from their childhood.

It’s not long before the students — and the audience — believe his unlikely tales.

“You won’t be able to resist its satiric blend of government conspiracy and old Norse mythology.” — Annalee Newitz, io9.com
