The Troll Hunter: Sundance Review
- With this Bizarro-World trek through the fjords, fields and mountaintops of wintry Norway, Andre Ovredal joins a select group of European filmmakers who have clearly paid attention to Hollywood's lessons -- particularly in the class on creature-features old and new -- without negating their own specific cultural sensibility.
Picked up pre-Sundance by Magnolia Pictures' genre division, Magnet Releasing (and by Universal Pictures International for most of Europe), The Troll Hunter injects inventiveness, folkloric idiosyncrasy and deadpan humor into the overexploited faux-documentary trend. A generous dollop of Jurassic Park inspiration doesn't hurt either.
