This movie isn't too old, it's about a little boy that opens up a book and it cursed him, his brother and his sister. They went upstairs and a little troll was up there and the troll acts crackers.

Later on in the movie, a lot of trolls were chasing them trying to get the boy's book back because it wasn't supposed to be open.

Please help me find this movie

  • Were they big trolls or small trolls? Were they trolls or just troll-like? Do you remember any of the actors? How old were the characters? When did you watch the film, recently?

1 Answer 1


Could this be "The Spiderwick Chronicles"?

The description on Wikipedia matches reasonably well;

Jared uses the key to open a chest. In it, he finds Spiderwick's field guide to faeries; although an attached note warns him not to read it, he does so anyway.

Lucinda tells them that they need to find Arthur Spiderwick and have him destroy the book; however, Arthur is being held captive by Sylphs, a type of faerie. Suddenly, Mulgarath's goblins attack them and steal several pages from the book before they are driven off. Meanwhile in the woods, Mulgarath berates Redcap violently for not bringing all of the book, but he is pleased by having a page that allows Mulgarth to break the protective circle by moonrise. Mulgarath and Redcap prepare the potion for the upcoming night. Meanwhile on the children's return, Hogsqueal warns them that one of the stolen pages will allow Mulgarath to destroy the protective circle when the moon rises.
