Trolls are real, m'kay. The Norwegians have proof.

For some reason horror and the fake documentary seem a good fit. The subgenre exploded onto the scene in 1999 with The Blair Witch Project and has been alive and well as of late with Cloverfield, Paranormal Activity and The Last Exorcism, which Shawn and I have yet to see.

Now the Norwegians are getting into the game with their film Troll Hunter (Trolljegeren) and wow does it look like fun. The film is a "documentary" about a group of students who discover what they believe is a government conspiracy to keep the existence of trolls in the north of Norway hidden from the general public. Much running, screaming and smashing ensues. We like smashing here in The Basement.

Troll Hunter opens in Norway on Oct. 29, and Shawn and I promise to acquire a copy as soon as possible and get you a review.

Check out the trailer below and let us know your thoughts!
