TROLLHUNTER  Norway, 2010; André Ovredal
What if Blair Witch Project had been made in Norway, only it turned out to be a comedy and a fairy tale? Trollhunter purports to consist of unedited found footage from a presumably doomed expedition, a collegiate video crew tracking the hunter of their nation's fabled monsters through truly spectacular backcountry. That the film's a mockumentary doesn't guarantee fairy-tale ogres won't wreak havoc. Wonderful deadpan performance from Otto Jesperson in the title role. —RTJ
