Moviegoers will find that Norway’s not all about sweaty
Vikings and scenic fjords in THE TROLL HUNTER, Magnolia/Magnet Releasing’s new
mockdocumentary about a grizzled huntsman and a band of naive filmmakers
searching for King Kong-sized mythical creatures in the wilds of Norway. In the
final part of our exclusive video chat with TROLL HUNTER writer/director André
Øvredal (see part one here),
the filmmaker talks with Fango’s Tony Timpone about the film’s incredible FX,
the popularity of the found-footage craze and his future plans.
Opening in theater June 10 and currently on demand
everywhere, THE TROLL HUNTER follows a group of Norwegian film students who set
out to capture real-life trolls on camera after learning their existence has
been covered up for years by a government conspiracy. Their guide: the Troll
Hunter himself (Otto Jespersen), who works to keep the towering behemoths in
line. A cross between THIS IS SPINAL TAP and CLOVERFIELD, THE TROLL HUNTER
boasts truly fantastic images of giant monsters wreaking havoc on the
countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore. Read
