"You'll believe it when you see it!"

Nordic legends have a special charm, yet rarely make thier way to the international public. Trolls, in particular, are creatures that are hard to find in movies and literature, despite the many ideas that these bizarre beings could provide.

Written and directed by Andre Ovredal, Trollhunter, or by its original title Trolljegeren, is a Norwegian "found footage," dockumentary style film about a group of students who, while investigating a series of mysterious bear killings, uncover a long-kept secret in the mountains of Norway.

Plot summary from IMDb: When bears are found dead in Norway, the students of the Volda University Thomas, Johanna and the cameraman Kalle decide to investigate. They stalk the trailer of the mysterious hunter Hans expecting to find an explanation for the killings. The reluctant Hans tries to flee from the youngsters, but he agrees that they film him in action provided they follow his orders. Sooner the trio of students learns that Hans is actually a troll hunter that works for a secret government agency. Further, several dangerous trolls have escaped from their territory and Hans is assigned to eliminate them.

Awards: 9 wins & 11 nominations.
