So, a movie called Troll Hunter was playing at Fantastic Fest, and one sleepy morning, I woke up early to check out the press screening because someone needed to review it. I knew nothing of it, and soon trolls were filling the screen in all their awesome glory.
Going into the movie blind (in regards to the look of the monsters) is the best way to go, but there’s a new trailer out for the curious.
It puts more of an emphasis on the action, which is probably a good call since that’s the best part of the film, and it gives away the look of a lot of the trolls.
Three students head out into the forest with a game manager to see if the myths about trolls are really true, and what they find smells terrible and seems angry.
One note about this since I’ve seen the film. This trailer doesn’t do the CGI of the trolls justice. It looks far, far better on the big screen. It’s nearly perfect in the theater, and the effect is a host of menacing, beautifully terrifying monsters.
Also, owning that truck is a new life goal.
Troll Hunter will hit iTunes on May 6th and theaters in June.
Would you go see it?
