Netflix released a teaser trailer for Troll in June 2022, and in the short clip, we see the awakening of a mysterious mythological beast. The video isn’t much of a giveaway, probably because it’s still a teaser, and we haven’t seen a full official trailer yet. But from what we’ve seen, this horror thriller will be a race against time to stop the titular monster from causing massive destruction. The teaser also gives us a glimpse of the group of people, including a father-daughter duo, who appear to be leading the others in discovering the beast. And then we also get our first look at said troll. It looks like a huge chunk of rock, camouflaged in the mountains of rural Norway, until it comes to life, under a cloudy sky. It is gigantic with a shapeless form but it has four huge fingers on each hand and a long tail. Sounds sinister, right? Now, what he wants and why he’s woken up after years are exactly why you have to see the movie, and the wait may be worth it after all.

Like we said, there’s not much to take away from the trailer except the tone of this movie. Like most monster movies or popular horror stories, Troll it also features a gloomy and gloomy setting, with the only exception being the beautiful scenery of Norway.

What is troll about?

For those who aren’t quite aware of what trolls really are, here’s a quick introduction. Trolls (not to be confused with cutesy and funny cartoon versions of them or social media troublemakers) are bestial creatures in Norse folklore, especially Norse mythology. They are colossal, they generally look grotesque, they live far from human civilization, they are predators by nature and they pose a great danger to humans. And they also have huge feet, which not only leave footprints but also craters where they walk. Folklore also says, as we learn from the trailer, that trolls come to life in the dark and turn to stone when touched by sunlight, turning them into nocturnal creatures. Therefore, in many old Norse tales, some geographical landmarks are believed to have been formed when trolls were exposed to sunlight.

Netflix’s upcoming Norwegian horror follows the story of one of those ancient giants, who somehow wakes up from his slumber and begins to move towards civilization. As strange as it is for these mysterious beings, a group of experts tries to find out what caused this awakening and must stop it before it becomes a cause of destruction.

Check out Netflix’s synopsis of Troll down:

Deep within Dovre Mountain, something gigantic awakens after being trapped for a thousand years. Destroying everything in its path, the creature quickly approaches the capital of Norway. But how do you stop something you thought only existed in Norwegian folklore?
