Many favorites, as well as a small handful of films that I don't care for... in no particular order (1960-2014).
You believe it when you see it!
A group of students investigates a series of mysterious bear killings, but learns that there are much more dangerous things going on. They start to follow a mysterious hunter, learning that he is actually a troll hunter.
After 3 recommendations to watch this movie popped up on my Mothman Prophecies review, I decided fate was dealing me a hand I had to play.
Troll Hunter is a little found footage film that follows an amateur film crew that gets taken under the wing of a mysterious hunter who claims he hunts in the middle of the night for the government. He drives a beat up van, has a stereotypical facial scar, and he keeps to himself.
If you aren't already at least moderately interested in this movie, I don't know how to help…
A very disturbing documentary on one of nature's most fierce and unbelievable creatures.
A found footage movie about the troll problem in Norway. After watching this footage I can tell you they have a serious troll problem. Movie shows some college kids following a troll hunter....at first they think the troll hunter is crazy....but after a couple nights they realize they are following the Indiana Jones of troll hunters. A fun movie to watch....I enjoyed this movie....just probably not going camping in Norway anytime soon.
Whilst humour is present throughout the film in it's dry Norwegian style, this dark fairy tale really carries itself with some superb tension.
The excellent performances from the unknown stars are vital, alongside incredible visual effects, to ensure a natural and overwhelmingly real atmosphere for this fantastically unique piece of independent filmmaking.
Much like Rare Exports, this is another much hyped Nordic genre film which squanders a killer concept. I did enjoy this more than the aforementioned movie, at least this didn’t feel like it was missing an entire act, but it was still a little disappointing given the good reviews and positive word of mouth.
It follows the found footage conventions to the letter which is a little disappointing as it feels rather safe and predictable, something that found footage films used to be good at avoiding. The film does get a number of things spot on: The creature designs are excellent as is the way they are realised in CGI (it is certainly helped that they are kept off screen…
What a Wonderful World Challenge Film #4
My rather low rating for the film Troll Hunter should come as no shock, as there was very little chance I would enjoy this film going in. While I continue to be a fan of The Blair Witch Project, it is because I recognize that film for being innovative and compelling, utilizing the found footage style with perfection to make me genuinely scared of going into the woods.
15 years after the release of The Blair Witch Project, and I am a fan of only one other film from the found footage sub genre, that being Chronicle. I find the whole concept of trying to pretend I am watching something real to be…
Muy buen found-footage. Sabe explotar todos los recursos que tiene y los lleva hasta su máxima expresión, además que la temática es bastante original, en mi opinión.
No es de terror como tal, pero emociona y provoca mucha adrenalina.
Hubo baches informativos que quizás pudieron ser mejor explicados, pero si hay una secuela para eso, bienvenida sea.
Vi que a las actuaciones les faltó un poco más de emocionalidad, no resultaban del todo creíbles.
The trolls in the movie are pretty damn big would other people see the trolls walking down a hill or over the freaking city, the visual effect's are Okay looking I mean they are not the worst CGI that I seen I just think it looks a bit like a game when the move around and the final nick pick that I have is the movie reminds me of shadow of the colossus. the trolls in the movie are really scary and frightening at times.
Found Footage really doesn't work. I don't like it. This additionally drags this film down, which already had problems in some parts. Decent cult-film idea, below average execution.
A mi me ha entretenido bastante dentro del genero de falso documental, creo que resulta bastante creativa la idea de los Troll y los efectos espaciales son bastante buenos, sin ser nada del otro mundo he pasado un rato divertido.
Dumber than I expected a movie named "Troll Hunter" to be.
I did not at all expect this.
'What?', I hear you think.
I'm overal not a big fan of films that aren't English spoken. I live in the Netherlands, I've been born there, and I can't stand Dutch movies either when it comes to that. I prefer mine in plain English.
But sometimes, it's worth it.
'Troll Hunter' is one of them. Sure, you will be gravely dissapointed if you sit down with your popcorn and fizzy drink, and expect big hollywood effects with exploding cars and torn down buildings, and top of the bill acting from famous actors who learned a foreign language overnight.
However, if you go in, knowing that what you're going to be treated to is…
Hugely inventive, found-footage monster flick shot on location in the Norweigian countryside is genuinely great fun. Even with such a low budget at the filmmakers disposal, the special effects are outstanding and the efforts they go to create a unique mythology is refreshing for this kind of fare. Otto Jespersen kicks some major arse here, channeling a more badass Indiana Jones persona. The birth of a truly memorable modern day hero.
Neil Marshall has been tapped to do the English remake. Probably the best person for the job but it'll end up inferior. I'd rather a direct sequel or prequel from the original cast and crew, if they were to continue this in any other shape or form.
Lightly campy and very good fun. I thought the effects were well done as well. The science behind their trolls is well thought and creative. What bothered me was how far they go with the subject of it being real footage, but there may be some politics involved there as well. Screw it, it's a fun movie that is pretty re-watchable.
a really great film. didnt know that it was subtitled but it was very entertaining it didnt matter after a while.
