Rewind: Hunt out 'Trollhunter'

I’ve been championing the Norwegian horror mockumentary “Trollhunter” for quite a while now, touting it for both the Tribeca Film Festival and regular release, and I’m doing it again now as it arrives for home enjoyment. Quick recap: A bunch of students follow a troll hunter through Norway as he goes hunting the gigantic, snarling beasts. While the film does drag at a few points, “Trollhunter” is just so much fun, and the trolls are stunning. You could just wait for the inevitable American remake, but don’t you want to be hip and see the original? (DVD, $26.98; Blu-ray, $29.98)
