You are food. Those muscles you flex to walk, lift, and talk? They’re patties of meat topped with chewy tendon. That skin you’ve paid so much attention to in mirrors? It’s delicious to the right tongues, a casserole of succulent tissue. And those bones that give you the strength to forge your way in the world? They rattle between teeth as the marrow is sucked down slobbering throats. These facts are unpleasant but useful.
When a 45-year old mystery resurfaces, threatening the lives of everyone in the seemingly sleepy town of San Bernardino, teenager Jim Sturges’ life changes--forever. With terror now on the horizon, Jim will go from typical teen to trollhunter. He’ll have to team up with a band of some of the most unlikely (and some un-human) heroes to battle the monsters he never knew existed. Will his ragtag team survive and save the day? Or will they become the fearful flesh the beasts love to feed on?
Says del Toro, " I wanted very much to develop a story that could be written for kids but dealt with a genre that was scary. It essentially combines fairy tales with modern times and is about how difficult it is to be a kid. The growing pains, married with the notion that there is a world right next to us that is completely plagued by creatures of ancient lore, it’s thematically fitting with the rest of my stuff."
