Troll Hunter, The ( Trolljegeren ) 
The Troll Hunter
3/4 stars

This cult pseudo-documentary -- using the "found video" conceit -- follows three Norwegian film students as they inadvertently uncover a government conspiracy to cover-up the existence of real-life trolls. While shooting a project in the mountains, they meet up with a man whom they suspect to be a poacher but in reality is a trollhunter, a hunter working for the government whose sole task it is to keep trolls away from humans. The students join the trollhunter on his latest rounds, leading them straight into the path of the menacing monsters and documenting every last second of the man's heroics. Can we ever get enough of found video horror films? I think not, especially when they're so much fun and well put together as this one. Yes, there are the requisite nighttime shots (plenty of them, in fact, since trolls can't exist in the daylight) and plenty of running, camera dropping, and things that go bump in the dark. But that's more than offset by the interesting plot line and troll backstory. And though the trolls are kinda goofing looking, their size and viciousness make them downright scary when they go after the humans. A fun outing.
