On the edge of a dark wood, a medieval Viking bounty hunter heeds a daily signal to enter the woods to fight and claim the heads of horrific beasts. Between mounting trophies and treating battle wounds with mysterious potions, the quiet warrior plots revenge on the monster that robbed him of his greatest treasure. “The result is a riveting, original fantasy that keeps the viewers invested until the very end.” —Shawn Pacheco, Horror Geek Life.

Content warning: scenes of intense, graphic violence

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
