Troll, an upcoming Norwegian horror film directed by Roar Uthaug, from 2018's Tomb Raider, has been unveiled on Netflix. While Troll will be absent from the Halloween season, it will take long for us to see the titular monster in its magnificence, as the film will be released this December.
The image of two people climbing a massive rocky wall is unveiled until they realize that they are facing a huge rock monster straight from Norwegian mythology. The Troll will be exposed to daylight, which hardens its body and freezes it into place.
Troll will introduce a monster into our reality and demonstrate what might happen if we were attacked by an unbelievable opponent. Unfortunately, some unlucky researchers will have to confront a very real creature once the mountains start moving and threaten to destroy entire cities with the strength of its monolithic arms, a task that leads them to investigate ancient fairy tales.
The first trailer provided an introduction to the colossus, but the poster shows a closer inspection of the Trolls' faces. A creature feature lives or dies according to how its main monster can ensnare the audience. And by the looks of it, Troll promises to have a great time.
Troll is directed by Espen Horn and Kristian Strand Sinkerud from Motion Blur. The filmmakers have previously worked with Netflix for Cadaver. Uthaug directs from a script by Espen Auka. Ine Marie Wilmann, Mads Sjgard Pettersen, Kim Falck, Gard B. Eidsvold, and Pal Richard Lunderby direct.
Troll will be available on Netflix on December 1st. Check out the new poster, trailer, and synopsis below.
After being imprisoned for a thousand years deep inside the mountain of Dovre, something huge reappears. The creature is fast approaching Norway's capital. But how do you stop something that you thought was just in Norwegian folklore?
