I love found-footage horrors! They are some of my favorites! I am going to include Fictional Documentaries/Reality TV/Broadcast TV Horrors…
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.

Challenge: A movie about a troll. Since it's more fun to watch a movie about a troll, than interact with one.)
André Øvredal's "Troll Hunter" is a found footage film about Trolls in Norway. In this world, not only do they exist, but the heroes we find within old folk tales are still around to keep them in check from lashing out into the public eye.
Our story really begins with three collage students filming a mysterious man who man think to be a bear hunter in a smaller part of Norway, named Hans, who turns out to be…
A very disturbing documentary on one of nature's most fierce and unbelievable creatures.
Bettering films like "The Blair Witch Project" by adding deeper mythology, richer themes, and more effective filmmaking, Norway's "Troll Hunter" is a neatly assembled, highly exciting found-footage horror film. Andre Øvreda's film combines monster-movie adventure, hunted-humans horror, and documentary-style urgency for a film that is swift, good-looking, and fully entertaining.
Purported to be the footage of an amateur documentary crew whose investigation into bear-killings turns into something else entirely, "Troll Hunter" uses the found footage format to create a film that is gripping, slyly amusing, and almost political. Finding themselves following a government endorsed troll hunter, the crew members capture the hunter in action as he works to make the countryside safe from the legendary beasts.

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…
Part of Hoop Tober
Since it's part of the rules of the Hoop Tober challenge to review every film and I do not really have much time to write right now, my reviews of all these horror films will be shorter than usual, but I'll try to keep them just as sweet.
It's strange how a film manages to be so creative and sadly unsurprising at the same time. There is a lot of craftsmanship and brilliant originality surrounding the world of trolls and the mythology that is in this film, Øvredal creates this fascinating world paying attention to detail and goes deep with his love for the amazing creature, giving us a lot of insight and making up delicious…
Another found footage movie but this one is a cut above most of the other films of this type saturating the horror market. Three college students are investigating a spate of bear killings in the Norwegian country side, at first the think it is the work of an unlicensed poacher but when they start following him they realise he isn't the one doing the killing........
For a fairly low budget movie it looks really good, with the trolls themselves giant life-like creatures, the acting is solid throughout with Otto Jespersen being the stand-out as the titular Troll Hunter, an unassuming bad-ass, always cool as a cucumber, i could have watched a whole film of him telling his matter of fact…
pq eu assisti isso pfv n cometam o mesmo erro
The Blair Witch Project with trolls instead of the witch. That’s basically it. No real surprises in the “plot” at all, but the execution is great, with wonderfully realised “trolls”, lots of nice dry Scanda-humour, and a ripping performance from Otto Jespersen as the title character – hilarious as a world-weary, matter-of-fact government employee. The sly digs at bureaucracy and the drudgery of government work could’ve been more overt. I really enjoyed this, even before the scary first encounter and the thrilling final clash. One of the most enjoyable things for me was the stunning Norwegian scenery. Definitely worth a visit one day. With or without the trolls.
The absolute pinnacle of "found footage" films, this should be the litmus test when it comes to this genre because Troll Hunter is absolutely above the rest.
Hoop-tober: Film #9
The pacing could've certainly been tighter, and it drags at times, but Troll Hunter is a solid effort with some awesome sequences involving the trolls, and their great designs. Overall, it's solid. Nothing to write home about, but it's good.
Hooptober challenge movie no 9.
I never really enjoy found footage movies because the people in them tend to do really stupid things in order to keep filming or save the footage. This One was Pretty good, though.
The cast were funny and Hans the troll Hunter was likeable and cool. His final showdown with the troll is really impressive and actually builds a lot of suspense.
The scenery is wonderful. I visited Norway to see the northern lights last year and this made me want to go back!
interesting found footage
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.
An amazing modern fantasy tale about secrecy, mystery and hunting for dangerous prey, all set in the gorgeous norwegian woods and mountains. Found footage style done right!
A Norwegian "found footage film" about 3 university students who follow around a bear poacher, hoping to interview him for a documentary they're making, only, he's not hunting bears, he's a troll hunter.
First, the found footage. Not generally a fan, though it can be used effectively, and I'm happy to say that it was here. Troll Hunter is a fairly low budget movie, and the shaky camera, quick cuts, and night vision segments actually enhances the suspension and keeps the tension up, when otherwise, I feel the landscape would be rather dull. As well, there are definitely shaky parts, but for the most part the camera remains fairly steady, which is nice.
Character design on the trolls was pretty…
