Troll Hunter 2010 horror adventure foreign
Available for streaming on Prime Video
This underrated, documentary style film by three college students, majoring in Journalism, begins by covering a bear poaching story in Norway. As they dig into the story they find enough clues to find a mysterious hunter named Hans living in a trailer at a campground, deep in the Norwegian woodlands. They think Hans is the poacher, and decide to follow him. They are in for the surprise of their young lives. With persistence and some dangerous clandestine work in the dead of night they uncover the Euro-news scope of the decade. Hans is an employee of the secretive Norwegian TSS (Troll Security Service), and he is the only licensed trolljegeren (troll hunter) in Norway. After several attempts for an interview, the film crew finally gets him to open up about his job. It is a pleasure to listen to a man who really knows his craft, and Hans is a master Troll hunter. He shares valuable information with the film crew. For instance:
Trolls only prowl about at night.
How to track a pack of trolls.
Why a troll may have more than one head.
How to ID the various types of trolls (Ringlefinches, Tosserlads, Jotnars, Ragnars, and Mountain Kings).
A map showing the secret Norwegian Troll Reservations.
How to outwit and sneak up on a troll.
Most important - How to kill a troll.
And finally - Troll disposal techniques and methods used by the TSS to confuse the general public about trolls.
Trolls are a very touchy subject in Norway, but ask any Norwegian – they know that trolls are NO fairy tale.
