No theatre near me played this movie, so I was excited to see it on Netflix. I enjoyed it.

It's a great mockumentary about a guy in Norway who's basically a game and wildlife marshal, but for trolls. A student film crew stumbled upon his actual work, then get recruited to fallow him around filming various types of trolls.

Loved it, too -- watched it via iTunes before it was released.

I'd mentally crossed it off after seeing the trailer. Thought the effects looked cheap. Were they believable in the movie?

I liked them. Better than most CG generated monsters. I think it helped that a lot of the film was done in the dark, so detail wasn't as important.

I watched it on Netflix the other weekend. Loved it.

I thought the effects were pretty good; not great, but certainly good enough.
