In the vein of Trollhunter (2010) and Rare Exports Exports (2010) comes Ragnarok. Ignore the horrible voice over, the film looks as if it could be fun. Sure it is the standard creature movie, but lately outlets outside of Hollywood have been producing quality horror.
Synopsis: Archeologist Sigurd Svendsen (Pål Sverre Hagen) has for years been obsessed with the Oseberg Viking ship. The only inscription found on the ship is the enigmatic ´man knows little' written in runes. Sigurd is sure that the Oseberg ship contains the answer to the mystery of Ragnarok, the end of days in Norse mythology. When his friend Allan finds similar runes on a stone from the north of Norway, Sigurd becomes convinced that the runes are in fact a treasure map. Together they mount an expedition group and their adventure leads to “No man’s Land” between Norway and Russia, which has been deserted for decades. Here Sigurd learns the true meaning of the runes – a secret more terrifying than he could possibly imagine.
Ragnarok arrives August 15th, 2014.
