Troll Hunter

I went to watch new Norwegian horror-comedy-fantasy, Troll Hunter  at Manchester’s Cornerhouse last weekend – and I have to say it was a real treat.

Part Blair Witch Project, part Where the Wild Things Are, the film weaves a delightfully action packed and fantastical spell on it’s audience – helped in part by it’s dizzying blend of hand-held camera work and top-notch special effects.

In the movie a group of film students investigate a series of mysterious bear killings, but learn that there are much more dangerous things going on. They start to follow a mysterious hunter to try and find out more, only to discover that he’s actually hunting…. trolls.

Check out some of the excellent original artwork for the film’s trolls over at the Empire site here.

And if you haven’t seen the film yet, get going.
