Cult classic 'Trollhunter' appears Friday at Battelle

By Gary Wolcott, atomictown.comOctober 25, 2012 

The Battelle Film Club in Richland offers Trollhunter, which was released in 2010 and has become a cult classic.

Based on Norwegian mythology, the film is now huge in U.S. movie mythology. The film got raves from critics -- and when one could find it -- audience acclaim.

Mostly done with hand held cameras and with excellent special effects for such a low budget flick, Trollhunter follows university students not believing that bears are creating havoc in their area. Their research leads them to a troll hunter who is employed by the government to do away with them.

Not quite horror, but not quite not horror, Trollhunter is a terrific, well done, very entertaining movie and -- if it's your thing -- highly recommended.

It will be playing one time only -- 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26, at the Battelle Auditorium.

Mr. Movie rating: 5 stars out of 5

Rated PG-13 for mature themes, violence.
