This ritual is done by releasing the victims and hunting them down (like in `The Naked Prey'). Cue a lot of one on one scrapping, some blood letting, minimal dialogue and some brilliant examples of prosthetic bad dentistry. The Berserker bit comes from when the Viking lot take some sort of drug and go `berserk' - which is actually where we get the name from. It was more commonly used for battles where you could use an amphetamine rush in order to take on the enemy - but hey a human sacrifice chase will do too I suppose.
Now this is a small budget and it shows. However, there are some pretty good performances, the music is also really very accomplished and the continuity guy did an exceptional job. They also make the most out of what they have got to work with and it has a genuine feeling of plausibility. However, I was still unengaged at times and got a bit bored with the constant brawling and lack of anything meaningful to engage my cerebral cortex. If you like Viking films you may want to see this even if they don't have pointy horned helmets.
This is one of many British viking films out at the moment but this is one of the best out there yes it's on a low budget but then aren't so many other British films this is worth a watch if you like these sort of films.
Apocalypto was done so much better, it made it difficult to watch this film that takes place in 835 AD. That was the year the Vikings invaded the Isle of Sheppey, although it is not known if this was the exact location. The film rightly shows the power of the völva, a woman who was a seer and priestess. Her demand for human sacrifice, especially the way depicted in the film,is to say the least is controversial.
This goes into the realm of historical fiction that border on fantasy.
Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. Beating heart being cut out and shown to victim.
The incredibly complex yet absolutely followable storyline features three Vikings - Ugg, Nor and Gastroddle - going to the Muslim lands to find treasure and riches.
However, they accidentally run ashore in England and, completely enraged by the unfortunate circumstance, decided to eat the local population.
After the ripping the still-beating liver out of an Alton Towers leaflet distrubutor, Ugg, Nor and Gastroddle walk up a mountain and find the Wizard of the Snows, a man of ancient and great power. He quickly notifies them of his sponsorship with the Fantastic washingMachines Limited, FML (clothes come out those babies "snow white"!).
The vikings have no interest in buying washing machines and so kill the wizard and throw his corpse in a some what comedic scene down a mountainside.
Not long after all this, the vikings start to question the meaning of life while hiking down the other side of the mountain. This leads to a series of amazing, thought provoking scenes which are guaranteed to shed a tear to the eye!
What the director does here is amazing: he lulls the viewer into a sense of false security and soften's their outlook before switching to a scene in a snap-flash to Ugg brutally raping a chicken to death.
The chicken's ghost comes back to life and the Vikings battle it.
After all this Gastroddle wakes up in a bed with a sheep and the film ends. One has to decode and unravel this film's metaphors.
This film is better than The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, Citizen Kane, Bridge of the River Kawaii and Biodome all put together!

not a bad film this, just let down with daft ending when everyone goes berserk, seems like the ending was rushed but worth the purchase.Published 1 month ago by paul taylor
Not bad. A little slow though. Saved by the creepiness of the Volva ( the witchy heart-craver).Published 15 months ago by Lou
