“The most important documentary of the year is Norwegian,” screams the trailer for Troll Hunter. “It will change how you view society.”

And it would — if it weren’t a tongue-in-cheek mockumentary.

Says Twitchfilm:

the picture is a tongue-in-cheek moc-doc that proposes that the Norwegian government has been hiding the fact that they have a secret population of trolls – real, actual trolls – living on game preserves in the far north of the country, kept safe and secure and out of the public eye to prevent mass panic should people realize that these fairy tale creatures are real. Those high tension power lines you see stretching out over the horizon in unpopulated areas, seemingly going nowhere? Not power lines at all but an electric fence to keep the beasts contained!

A still from the movie, above, was obtained by Afterposten, where you can read more about it (if you read Norwegian).

But here’s the trailer, with English titles.

I. Can’t. Wait.

Sadly, I anticipate a big-budget Hollywood remake of this idea in about 2013.

    I tried Google Translate on that Norwegian page — linky link — it’s got a little bit more info that you can suss out, but it’s mostly about the Norwegian Film Festival.

      LOL. Not 100% sure how you missed the multiple mentions that this is, indeed, fiction, but thanks for pointing it out once more. In the future, try to avoid insensitive slurs, tho, yeah?

    Surely there could be trolls, also werewolves, Bigfoot, etc. Doesn’t anyone consider that several countries have been genetically engineering human mix creatures for quite some time?? If Stalin thought he could do this half a century ago ( his monkey army), why dont thinking people realize this notion of mixing species has never gone away… And with hugely progressive technology, has most probably created creatures who’s true existence is treated as farce to keep the truths hidden. For awhile. Also consider the alternative element of huge beings on the earth made by spirit beings-human mix, see Genesis 6:4, Christian Bible. ( This nugget for Bible believers.)
