“TROLL HUNTER IS MAGNIFICENT” - JONATHAN ROSS

Coming Up From Momentum...

Check out another great movie from Momentum, the people who brought you Troll Hunter…

The Divide

As an onslaught of nuclear missiles from an unknown assailant falls on New York City, a small group of tenants and the caretaker of an apartment building manage to find refuge in the building’s bunker-like basement. But as the days and nights slowly tick by, their sanctuary starts to resemble something more akin to a living hell. Adding further terror to the situation, the shelter is unexpectedly attacked by mysterious armed assailants wearing hazmat suits, their motives unknown but their merciless method of assault all too clear. This new threat forces the trapped victims to unite against a common enemy but it is a unity that proves to be short-lived.

The Divide (cert. 18) is released by Momentum Pictures and will open at selected UK cinemas on 20th April 2012. It will be available on Video On Demand from 30th April 2012 and available to Download and on DVD (£12.99) from 14th May 2012.

Troll Hunter Is Number One

Troll Hunter has topped the rental and retail charts this week. A first for a Norwegian film (and of course, a movie about Trolls…).

THE LOCAL picks up the story, here's a quote from the delighted producer of the movie:

“It’s sensational that a Norwegian film is at the top of the DVD/Blu-ray charts in the UK,” said producer John M. Jacobsen.

“It’s definitely the first time this has happened for the Norwegian film industry and it’s an unbelievable start to the 2012 film year for all of us. What’s just as sensational is the fact that a subtitled film managed to secure this position.

“We’re incredibly happy and proud at having reached yet another milestone for Norwegian films abroad,” said Jacobsen.

Found Footage Winner!

What are the five found footage horrors that you simply must see? Let's ask BLOODY GOOD HORROR who've published their own list.

Alongside the mother of all found footage terror Cannibal Holocaust, you find Rec, The Last Exorcism, Paranormal Activity and of course. the brilliant Troll Hunter.

“There’s a reason that “Troll Hunter” was BGH’s second best film of 2011, it’s a whole hell of a lot of fun. Eschewing straight up horror and going more for comedy, “Troll Hunter” showcases some of the other strengths that the first person style can bring. ”

One of the biggest hits with audiences at this year’s Film4 Frightfest and a major critical success during its subsequent UK theatrical release in September 2011, which saw it earning Four Star reviews in Empire (“spectacular fun”), Total Film (“ a true one off… it will quite simply blow you away”) and Time Out (“shot through with an unexpected, often unsettling, humour”), the horror-comedy Troll Hunter bursts its way on to DVD and Blu-ray on 9th January 2012.

The debut feature from Norwegian director Andre Ovredal, this “original and highly assured fusion of B-movie lore and fairytale terror” (The Hollywood Reporter) combines the vision of “Where The Wild Things Are” with the faux-documentary, found-footage stylings of “Cloverfield”, “REC” and “The Blair Witch Project” to produce an “enormously entertaining” (Variety) and suspense-filled creature feature that the Daily Star rated as 'one of the finest monster movies ever" and Total Film described as being “like David Attenborough taking a stroll into Roald Dahl’s brain.”

Following the deaths of a couple of tourists and a spate of livestock mutilations in the mountains and forests of Norway, the government’s official line is that rogue bears are responsible. But the local hunters don’t agree and neither does a trio of college students who have been stalking an alleged poacher, Hans, with the intention of making a documentary film about him. Their persistence in pursuing Hans finally pays off when the filmmakers become victims of a night-time attack by something that is obviously much larger than a bear. In the aftermath, Hans agrees to an interview in which he reveals the truth regarding his occupation – he is actually a government employed troll hunter. Sceptical, the students volunteer to assist this unlikely hero in his work on the understanding that they will be allowed to document the proceedings and publicly reveal the heavily guarded secrets of a race of creatures thought only to exist in fairly tales.

A “clever and engaging mock documentary” (The New York Times) that is “fun, funny and fearless” (Little White Lies), Troll Hunter is “an instant cult classic” (IGN).

Troll Hunter (cert. 15) will be released on DVD (£17.99) and Blu-ray (£19.99) by Momentum Pictures on 9th January 2011.
