About the film:
Based on the seminal 9th century Anglo-Saxon poem, Beowulf, the film tells the blood-soaked tale of a Norse warrior's battle against a great and murderous troll, Grendel, who has laid seige to the kingdom of Hrothgar, the much respected king of the Danes.

Out of allegiance to Hrothgar, Beowulf leads a troop of warriors across the sea to rid a village of the marauding monster. The monster, Grendel, is not a creature of mythic powers, but one of flesh and blood - immense flesh and raging blood, driven by a vengeance from being wronged. Beowulf's willingness to kill on behalf of Hrothgar wavers when it becomes clear that the King is more responsible for the trollís rampages than was first apparent. And Beowulf's relationship with a provocative witch, Selma, creates further confusion. Swinging his sword at a stinking beast is no longer such a simple act.

Building toward an inevitable and terrible battle - with many heads rolling along the way - Beowulf & Grendel is a tale where vengeance, loyalty and mercy powerfully entwine. A story of blood and beer and sweat, of sick jokes and fear of the dark, Beowulf & Grendel strips away the mask of the hero-myth, leaving a raw and tangled tale.
