I caught Troll Hunter last weekend while scrolling through my video on demand options, hungover on the couch. It was actually available on VOD prior to being in theaters was pretty enticing as well.
No spoilers here, but watch the trailer and you’ll figure it out: the movie is about a troll hunter. That in itself sold me.
It’s a damn good horror movie that is tremendously fresh and reassuring, in that unique horror movies are still being made. The Norwegian-made film features several well-known comedians who mix the right amount of humor in (just enough to make you laugh before you tense up or nearly shit your pants), adding to a common lighthearted theme that runs common in the movies we’ve been watching lately.
Sure it may remind you of other mockumentary horror movies, or some “OH MY GOD” moments when they finally reveal the monsters you’ve been hearing, but whatever. I haven’t seen a horror movie featuring trolls in forever. Please check it out, you won’t regret it.
