Troll Hunter – review

The second film I saw at the BIFFF was Troll Hunter. It’s a fantastic film from Norway.

SYNOPSIS

A group of students investigate a series of mysterious bear killings, but learns that there are much more dangerous things going on. They start to follow a mysterious hunter, learning that he is actually a troll hunter.

In the same way then Cloverfield and Rec, Troll Hunter is a really really nice film. Like the poster says : It’s pretty damn spectacular. The FX are perfect, the characters are strong and the script is solid. It’s also really funny.

As everyone know, I’m not a critic, so that’s why this is not a really long review/article on the movie. This is just me telling you : CHECK OUT THIS FILM.

Wake Wood review

*The Gravedigger is not a critic though, he simply exhibits posters and trailers from those movies that need a little free publicity.

SYNOPSIS

Still grieving the death of their only child Alice at the jaws of a crazed dog, vet Patrick and pharmacist Louise relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood where a local pagan ritual gives them three more precious days with her… but what will they do when it’s time for their new daughter to go back?

I sat down at the BIFFF without any expectation with this movie. The start of the movie is kind off good but more your watching it, the more you realize that it’s really a cliché and bad adaptation of pet cemetery. The problem with it is not the director, actors, cinematography or anything else on set or in post-production. It seems that we are looking at the first version of a script. The wrote it and shoot it.

So I didn’t dislike the movie, but I tough that a film like that would work in the 80′s but in 2011, you need to find away to do something different and everything is really starting with the script. I think people should give it a try !
