At the site of an illegally slain bear, they interview local hunters, who comment that the bear tracks look odd, as well as Finn Haugen (Hans Morten Hansen), head of the Norwegian Wildlife Board. Finn dismisses the idea that the bear tracks could have been faked. Like true paparazzi, the students follow Hans, who tells them to go away. As they follow him into a forest, they see mysterious flashing lights and hear roars. Hans comes running back screaming "Troll!" Thomas is attacked and bitten by a large animal. They escape in Hans' Land Rover, and discover their own vehicle, turned over with the tires mysteriously missing. Hans admits that he does not hunt bears, but trolls. Though skeptical, the students ask if they can join Hans and film his hunt. Hans consents.

Sorry GBD, it's not available on Netflix. Walf, you may cry yourself to sleep now.

I don't have Hulu Plus but I did take a quick look but could not find any of these based on my search on Hulu. Prove me wrong, people! Shame me! Shame me in the comments!

Anyway, there you go. Get to voting! Leave me your picks in the comments below. Voting will close on Wednesday, July 24th and I'll get a post up on the winner shortly thereafter. This means we won't actually be holding a TAYV Movie night next week but the following week on Thursday, August 1st.
