Troll Hunter

Norwegian trolls on a rampage. Troll hunter is a horror film from Norway. It's filmed as a mocumentary like Cloverfield and The Blair Witch project. The story starts out with three students investigating strange bear killings in Norway. On a tip they start following a poacher to try and find out what's going on. When confronting the poacher Hans they learn he is actually a troll hunter and Han's allows them to film his work.
The movie had a really cool and original story to it. I liked how it explained things in detail. Like the different kind of trolls and their habits. Also how the trolls smell christian blood, masking the human smell with troll stench, their habits,and how to kill them. The special effects were so well done the trolls looked excellent. The scenery of the Norway landscape it was filmed in was incredible too. The down side is it was suppose to be a horror comedy. I think a lot of the jokes are lost in translation or you have to be from Norway. I didn't really laugh at anything. It also seemed kind of slow to me too.I have never been big fan of the shaky cam thing either. A lot of the other reviews I read really hyped the movie up. It was a good original film worth checking out but it could have been better.
