Everything we know about Netflix’s troll movie
While little has been revealed about the film’s overall plot, troll certainly seems to have the hallmarks of a climate change message. As the titular monster is seemingly disturbed from its slumber by a man-made explosion, the stage seems set for a moral lesson about the consequences of human interference with nature. Share a resemblance to important Kaiju titles such as godzilla and King Kongthe public might expect the ultimate evil in troll is not the monster itself. This can give the film a particularly sharp resonance in this day and age, perhaps allowing troll to reach a new audience. Thrillers with social commentary are growing in popularity, and when done right, troll may become a modern classic within the genre.
With recent movies like Midsommar and The ritual Netflix is fueling the demand for on-screen Scandinavian folklore and no doubt hopes to deliver much of the same and find another international hit. A darker teaser released back in june, the last one troll trailer suggests the photo will also have quite a bit of humor and a lighter tone than previously believed, while also taking advantage of a woefully underrepresented monster that last captured the imagination in the 2011 film Troll Hunter. Monster movies and folk horror fans can find troll starting next month on Netflix.
