Watch Now: LOTR Fan Film ‘The Hunt For Gollum’
Empress Eve   |  @   |  

Inspired by the Lord of the Rings series, Tolkien fan Chris Bouchard wrote and directed The Hunt For Gollum, a fan film which was released online on May 3.

Check out the trailers for the film here below and watch the entire film online for free at Daily Motion: The Hunt For Gollum.

Bouchard, who reportedly created this 40-minute fan film on a mere $3,000 budget, incorporated elements from the appendices of The Lord of the Rings into this story, depicts events leading up to The Fellowship of the Ring. The film follows the Heir of Isildur, as he sets out to find the creature Gollum, who has lost the ring of power to the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. The creature must be found before he falls into enemy hands and reveals the location of the magic ring. Production on the film, which was a not-for-profit project by Independent Online Cinema, begin in 2007 on location in North Wales.

Let me stress, this unofficial flick is not your average fan film. Although it was not sponsored by New Line or the Tolkien estate, The Hunt For Gollum fits perfectly into Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings film trilogy. If you’re a fan of LOTR, you owe it to yourself to watch this film. You’ll love revisiting Middle Earth and all of its inhabitants.

You can view the film in standard or high definition, and there’s subtitles for French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, and more. You can also download two songs for free from the soundtrack.



  1. The Gollum fan film is getting a ton of coverage all over the net, and I’m not surprised as I’ve been writing about them on my daily fan film blog, for months. For what it’s worth, if you want to find out more about fan films in general, I wrote the first book about the history and future of ’em, Homemade Hollywood, which just came out.

  2. Beware! The website has bugs (advertising doesnt load properly) so it will kick you out of the movie ever 2 min. Other than that the movie is AWESOME! Very well done.

  3. @Smapty:
    I watched it and it never kicked me out, though I did notice that the beginning had very low volume. But, the page loaded for me and I didn’t have a problem otherwise.
