Big Troll Sighted

I’ve always thought of trolls as large and monstrous, but a new Norwegian monster film seems to have upped the ante considerably.

Apparently (as you can see from the trailer below) the filmmakers have hitherto been careful to keep the monster’s reality and appearance mysterious, suggesting that the documentary looks at a man who might be described as delusional — though the release of this image seems to have let the troll out of the bag.

The film is made in what I call a “camera verité” style. The style is sometimes referred to as “mockumentary”, that is, it mimics a documentary the way The Blair Witch Project did, encouraging audiences to suspend disbelief by adopting the conceit of it being actual footage.

It looks rather intriguing to me — and the daikaiju-sized troll is a definite plus.
