Trollhunter: Netflix Hidden Gem Surprises

I know what you're going to say: "Oh man, not another found-footage movie."

I thought the same, and I've complained about the genre being done to bits at this point. But for some reason, I still got pulled into watching this film, and it's still a slightly different take on the same general plot line structure we've all become accustomed to.

This movie takes place in Norway, and it follows a group of cameramen who are trying to do a documentary on bear poaching. Little do they know, this turns out to be a much more complicated situation than they originally thought, and of course, as the title suggests, the real animals that have been attacking things in the region are... trolls!

But really cool trolls that are actually scary. Not stupid small lame trolls.

This is a fun movie because it knows how to lead to suspense without having to really rely on violence or jumpy-scare tactics. The movie's not perfect, because there are a lot of long lulls that are kind of annoying to have to sit through (where the characters discuss what's going on), but it really allows for a good setup to the action that does take place.

Add it to your queue if you're a fan of the found-footage genre, for sure.
