Film of the day: Troll


If you remember André Øvredal’s Troll Hunter from 2010, you’ll enjoy this smashing creature feature.

Deep inside the mountain of Dovre, something gigantic awakens after being trapped for a thousand years. Destroying everything in its path, the creature is fast approaching the capital of Norway. But how do you stop something you thought only existed in Norwegian folklore?

Excellent action and pace overpower the clichés in this monster movie that puts the nonsense 2022 ‘blockbusters’ such as Moonfall and Marvel/DC cookie cutters firmly in the shade.


Streaming on Netflix from Thursday 1 December.
