Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this Norwegian (with English subtitles) horror comedy is presented as "found" documentary footage (much like The Blair Witch Project, though it's far less scary). There's plenty of fantasy-based creature violence as the trolls fight with humans; some wounds and icky bodily fluids (mostly non-human) are on display. Subtitles include several uses of "s--t," as well as a few other iffy words. The college-age teen characters are brave, curious, and resourceful, and despite a few downbeat notes here and there, the movie is a lot of fun (an American remake is in the works) -- it could be a good introduction to foreign-language movies for teens who might resist.
Except for some brief mentions of troll mating habits, not an issue.
Lots of fantasy-based creature violence, with chasing, fighting, and deaths; trolls are killed on screen, and humans off screen. Guns are seen, and shots are fired at trolls. There are some bodily fluids, but mostly non-human. Viewers see a dead bear, and one human gets a scratch wound. Viewers also see some nasty scar tissue on the troll hunter in one shot.
The spoken language is Norwegian, but the subtitles include several uses of "s--t," plus "ass," "hell," "piss," and "Christ" (used as an exclamation).
At first, the characters don't quite know what they're getting themselves into. But despite being scared, they bravely continue on, showing teamwork and problem-solving. They eventually triumph over some very large odds.
