This is one of my highlights film

Loved the setting and the thought there were different types of Trolls. The Trolls looked amazing. At times did remind me of Blair Witch.

Was nicely paced and had building tension. Hearing a oncoming Troll just added to the tension. Had humour as well with a farting troll!

My film of the festival - what fantastic fun! It made me laugh and I was thrilled and glued to the screen the entire way through.

Can't wait to own this baby and watch it again. Blu ray I reckon.

The sound was incredible - will never see / hear it that good again!
Thanks for the ride, sir.
You have lovely sheep.

This was, unfortunately, a disappointment. I've been getting steadily more annoyed with the overuse of the "found footage" technique and whlie the effects are fine and there are a few decent laughs, it's not enough.

One of the best of the festival. Simply great fun throughout, good combination of old folklore, fake documentary and humour throughout, plus it looked fantastic on the giant empire screen. It also had the superb Norwegian band Kvelertak playing on the end credits!

Awesome film - Now that's how to use the found footage angle well. Loved the trolls. 10/10

I saw this on iTunes as I never thought it would be at Frightfest. Such a good film i went and saw it again. Really held up on that screen.

Hugely enjoyable, utterly engrossing!

This is the movie I'll be recommending most enthusiastically to my non-FF friends.

10/10 :D

One of the highlights of the whole weekend was finally seeing this on the big screen, i thought it was wicked the 1st time i saw it, but the sound of the trolls on a Cinema Soundsystem took this to another level, simply brilliant
