A new still has reared its head for one of our favorite films this year, Troll Hunter (review here), and we’ve got the goods ready and waiting to tease your ocular nerves!
Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, announced that it has acquired world rights (excluding Europe) to writer/director André Ovredal’s docu-style horror flick so expect to see it hopefully soon.
Shot in a vérité style, Troll Hunter is the story of a group of Norwegian film students that set out to capture real-life trolls on camera after learning their existence has been covered up for years by a government conspiracy. A thrilling and wildly entertaining film, Hunter delivers truly fantastic images of giant trolls wreaking havoc on the countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore.
“Troll Hunter is one hell of a ride, with trolls the size of King Kong,” said Magnet SVP Tom Quinn. “André Ovredal has created a one-of-a-kind creature feature that’s sure to entertain and wow audiences all over the world. We’re extremely proud to add it to the Magnet slate.”
