Everyone will believe it when they see it! Norwegian director Andre AEvredal (Future Murder) presents an “enormously entertaining” (Variety) look at a creature thought only to exist in fairy tales when Trollhunter is uncovered on Blu-ray Disc and DVD August 23 from Magnolia Home Entertainment under the Magnet label. Shot in vérité style in the vein of popular films like Paranormal Activity and Cloverfield, Trollhunter follows three Norwegian film students as they travel to the mountains to catch a real-life troll on camera, a creature whose existence has been covered up for years by the local government. Their persistence quickly pays off as they trail a shadowy poacher, leading them straight into the path of the menacing trolls and documenting every last second of this “Trollhunter’s” heroics.
“The coolest monster movie import since The Host” (FEARNet) and “the best `found footage’ movie ever” (Screen Junkies), Trollhunter is beautifully shot, offering awesome images of the titular monsters destroying the Norwegian countryside. The Blu-ray Disc and DVD are loaded with special features including a making-of featurette, deleted scenes, an HDNet special on the film and the international trailer.
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.
