Having suffered through junk like The Devil Inside, it's safe to say that we're as fed up with shitty found-footage genre movies as the next Dramamine user. Yet we're not so ready to condemn all flicks of that ilk, mainly because there are some filmmakers out there innovative and gifted enough to execute the technique.
One such director is Norway's own André Øvredal, who burst onto the scene last year with this rowdy, funny, and visually kick-ass tale of documentarians seeking mammoth trolls in atmospheric Norwegian woods. Come for the outstanding special effects and creature designs, and stay for Øvredal's Jurassic Park-inspired action setpieces.
