Troll Hunter to be released to DVD and blu-ray

The Associates have announced that Troll Hunter is being released to DVD and Blu-ray in January 2012:

‘One of the biggest hits with audiences at this year’s Film4 Frightfest and a major critical success during its subsequent UK theatrical release in September 2011, which saw it earning Four Star reviews in Empire (“spectacular fun”), Total Film (” a true one off… it will quite simply blow you away”) and Time Out (“shot through with an unexpected, often unsettling, humour”), the horror-comedy Troll Hunter bursts its way on to DVD and Blu-ray on 9th January 2012.

The debut feature from Norwegian director Andre Ovredal, this “original and highly assured fusion of B-movie lore and fairytale terror” (The Hollywood Reporter) combines the vision of Where The Wild Things Are with the faux-documentary, found-footage stylings of Cloverfield, REC and The Blair Witch Project to produce an “enormously entertaining” (Variety) and suspense-filled creature feature that the Daily Star rated as “one of the finest monster movies ever” and Total Film described as being “like David Attenborough taking a stroll into Roald Dahl’s brain.”‘

Troll Hunter (cert. 15) will be released on DVD (£17.99) and Blu-ray (£19.99) by Momentum Pictures on 9th January 2011 with special features including trailer, deleted scenes, visual effects, photo galleries and behind the scenes.
