YOU’LL BELIEVE IT WHEN YOU SEE IT!
A group of college students try to make a documentary about a suspected bear poacher (Otto Jespersen), but he turns out to be secretly hunting trolls for the government. A found-footage exercise from the country that brought the world Edvard Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King”. An intriguing idea, and the visual effects are OK, although one could have hoped for trolls that didn’t behave just like another Godzilla. Excellent locations, but too much time goes to talking and driving around. Very amusing final scene.
