A list of some obscure, twisted, fucked up movies that i sorta like. How many have u watched?
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…
Though very repetitive this film was a lot of fun, the explanations behind the trolls and the government cover ups were really really great, I just think it was way too long. They probably could have cut out a couple of troll finds I reckon (though the troll designs are really cool!).
Watched a tiny bit dubbed instead of subbed and it was AWFUL.
I do love this film! It plays the lost footage genre exceptionally well, and the performances are very believable. At times the trolls are a bit muppet-like but overall it works well. The final troll scene with the humongous Jotnar is amazing. I think they balanced the blend of humour and horror very well. The picturesque countryside certainly adds to the spectacle.
Oh, and whilst doing some quick on-line research about the film to find out about the Norwegian PM's involvement, I discovered that in Norway they rate films out of six! How bizarre is that?
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Does well in grounding its often zany mythology in reality. Thrilling, smart and funny, but some fat could be trimmed.
Another Round of Hunting...
By the time many a much-hyped film reaches Kansas City, my expectations can be through the roof. In the case of "Trollhunter," the metaphorical hype roof can be busted by way of giant trolls. I liked it the first time, but sorta shrugged it off. There were things I liked, but essentially saw it as a film with failed potential, tossed to the 2010-11 disappointment pile. What was I wanting? I don't know. Again, that's hype for you. Several years later, I have dialed in a better impression of the film and really had a great time hunting trolls. This is also one to share with a group of friends. I get it now. What a wonderfully weird and playful film made to look real. It also has some great subtle hilarity between all the bits of stoic seriousness.
A fantastic low budget "found footage" film, 'Troll Hunter' keeps things simple. The plot is slight but involving, and the characterization slim but effective. The triumph of the film is in the design of the trolls, and the mythology building behind them. It doesn't rely on scares, but is thrilling in it's own restrained and unique way.
MY THREE WORDS
Simple, involving, effective.
You know you're gonna love that big one, the one on the poster.
Hell yeah, they are running away from him in a car, fun guaranteed!
It flows - the movie, maybe not take it seriously, eh?
Trolls are cool, even scary sometimes!
Loved how they have a thing for christian blood lol.
Good special effects!
Fun et al.
Found footage. Trolls. SO. GOOD.
Troll Hunter war schon seit Ewigkeiten auf meiner Watchlist und dank dem Amazon Prime Stream gedöns hab ich ihn dann heute auch endlich mal gesehen.
Troll Hunter ist ein Dokufilm im Stil ala Blair Witch Project oder Cloverfield und macht dabei einiges besser. Zum einen wird man hier trotz shaky cam mal nicht seekrank und zum anderen sieht man die trolle schon relativ früh und muss sich nicht nur auf wackelnde Bäume oder sonstige "wannabe" Schockeffekte beschränken.
Seit Troll Hunter werd ich Stromleitungen mit anderen Augen sehen.
