You may remember sometime ago that Guillermo del Toro and a group HETFET (Humans for the Ethical Treatment of Fairies, Elves, and Trolls) took it to the streets to demand fair and equal treatment for our Troll brothers. If you find yourself longing to do more to get a better deal for our fantasy friends, then you’ll want to visit the HETFET Homepage. There you’ll find out more about the group and be kept up to date with all the breaking news thats fit to print.
Recent headlines and news stories have pinpointed a major source of troll abuse: Augustine Pharmaceuticals. Another article indicated that reports of troll abuse nationwide are up an astonishing 235%. Elizabeth Moora, of HETFET, indicated that in times of economic hardship and when people feel frustrated, they’re often most likely to release those frustrations in the form of abuse on nearby fantasy creatures. Unfortunately, the lumbering trolls often are the easiest and most accessible targets.
As readers of the Film School Rejects site, assuredly you’re a kind and compassionate individual who would want to see the trolls delivered from oppression and allowed to live a free life, just like the rest of us. From the HETFET website:

For anyone who had their slight sarcasm detector switched to off, the above is a paraphrasing of the Hellboy II: The Golden Army viral marketing campaign that draws attention to the fantasy element of the upcoming film. Presumably trolls will play a significant part in the flick and the sight must be offering up dozens of clues. Included on the page are links to a Troll “Secret Device” as well as references to “Augustine Pharmaceuticals” and Boulder, Colorado. Assuredly these are important details, though to what degree they’ll play out in the movie is anyones guess.
