Win a signed poster, tshirt and a copy of the fantastic film on Blu-ray
Unlike the found footage genre, the mockumentary is a gift that just keeps giving, and Troll Hunter – a mock doc about a band of Norwegian hunters whose stock in trade isn’t livestock or intergalactic smugglers but towering trolls – was one of the surprise gems of 2011. Miss it at the flicks? Then you’re in luck, because it’s available to buy on DVD (£17.99) and Blu-ray (£19.99) from Momentum Pictures on 9 January 2012.
The debut feature from Norwegian director Andre Ovredal , Troll Hunter is equal parts smart, terrifying and laugh out loud funny. As the press blurb neatly puts it: “following the deaths of a couple of tourists and a spate of livestock mutilations in the mountains and forests of Norway, the government’s official line is that rogue bears are responsible. But the local hunters don’t agree and neither does a trio of college students who have been stalking an alleged poacher, Hans, with the intention of making a documentary film about him. Their persistence in pursuing Hans finally pays off when the filmmakers become victims of a night-time attack by something that is obviously much larger than a bear. In the aftermath, Hans agrees to an interview in which he reveals the truth regarding his occupation – he is actually a government employed troll hunter. Sceptical, the students volunteer to assist this unlikely hero in his work on the understanding that they will be allowed to document the proceedings and publicly reveal the heavily guarded secrets of a race of creatures thought only to exist in fairly tales.”
The DVD comes with a healthy selection of extras including a trailer, deleted scenes, improvs and bloopers, extended scenes, visual effects, a behind the scenes featurette, A Look at Troll Hunter doc and photo galleries.
