The Internet is a powerful tool. It's great to be able to promote yourself while hiding behind the anonymity of technology. But it does not come easily to me, to put it mildly.

My big sister, Lynne, and I are very close -- sick, co-dependent kind of close. As a result, we love to work together. It started when we were six and eight years old, performing in musical comedies in our father's summer theatre. We did that every summer for our entire childhood.

Trollhunter really is that simple - and one of the most striking examples of one dimensional, vacuous cinema. Taking a massive, neck-snapping nod from past supernatural 'found footage' efforts The Last Broadcast, The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield, director André Øvredal's second feature is bookended by bland subtitles preaching about the film's authenticity.
