Now Norway's getting in on the act with the interword-separation-ignoring TrollHunter, the "story" of three students who head off into the woods with a camera and a sound kit and blah blah trolls blah blah grizzled hunter blah blah not entirely successful.
On more than one occasion it breaks the fundamental rules of found-footage films: at one point the sound girl and her equipment get left behind but we can still hear what's going on with the rest of the group on screen, and there are several shots of the exterior of a vehicle which the cameraman is supposed to be inside. But these are minor niggles compared to the lack of anything resembling an interesting character.
Apart from a frustratingly short moment when a potentially interesting history between the troll hunter and a vet is hinted at, there's nothing about any of the characters to make us give a shit whether or not they get squished, eaten or used as troll t-roll. When your comedy-horror isn't that funny or scary, and you can only afford three set-pieces, then you need the characters to maintain the interest, and if they fail to do that then
STAND BY FOR PUN-SHAPED VERDICT
I'm afraid it's more of a case of "Fee Fi Ho Hum".
On the plus side, the film's best moment is available as a ringtone from the official website, so that's, um... good?
