Trollhunter - Review

NORWEGIAN HORROR Giant furry troll in Trollhunter

This deadpan, loopy Norwegian horror movie has monsters out of a fairy tale: giant furry trolls (some with three heads) who lumber out of the woods like oversize Muppets with a touch of King Kong. It was an effective choice to shoot these majestic creatures vérité-style, with a jittery camera, but Trollhunter, unfortunately, is such an under-imagined knockoff of The Blair Witch Project that whenever the trolls aren't on screen, it verges on tedium. As the stoic titular slayer, Otto Jespersen is the one actor who holds you. B–
