Beowulf & Grendel

Synopsis: The blood-soaked tale of a Norse warrior's battle against the great and murderous troll, Grendel. Out of allegiance to the King Hrothgar, the much respected Lord of the Danes, 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, while Beowulf, a victorious soldier in his own right, has become increasingly troubled by the hero-myth rising up around his exploits. Beowulf's willingness to kill on behalf of Hrothgar wavers when it becomes clear that the King is more responsible for the troll's rampages than was first apparent. As a soldier, Beowulf is unaccustomed to hesitating. His relationship with the mesmerizing witch, Selma, creates deeper confusion. Swinging his sword at a great, stinking beast is no longer such a simple act. The story is set in barbarous Northern Europe where the reign

Yahhhhh!!! Yahhhhhh

Ahhhh Owwee.




Let this great horn tell the world

no man stands above the Danes.

All we look up on is ours.

Hrothgar much loved king of the Danes.

Under Odirs eye I blood you lucky

on all parts that leave this hall.



Ahhhhhh! Blehhahhhhh!

May all those who cross

these steps find a happy heart.



Olaf! Pal!

Where were you when all this happened?


I'd had some beers.

What fucking thing would dare...



I'd love much to know man, whereabouts?

Fish beach.

Likely I'm the only one

who names it that.

Where I get fish.

I'm Beowulf


Yea Beowulf the what?

Heh? The eel meal?

You've never had another?

Wash up like myself?

In the name of Breca? Ahhh.

We were out hunting walrus

a couple of days ago...

when a storm came up and ate our boat.

So this is just you coming in now?


You've ever swum in the open sea?

I leave that to my boat.

Ahh. I'd like to think you'd botter me.

I can't see much life in that.

Do you do this a lot?

I take what comes.

Good then you'll have no qualms

if supper tastes like you.

Eat, be yourself.

So, what's it like being a hero?

Qualling things with axes and,

and that sword of yours. And what.

Kinda bloody madness. Heh

In truth I don't get all that mad.

So, ahhh hahh-hhhah,

A hero ahhh, A hero for supper.

Don't my shit shine.

Hah, hahhhh, hahhh

I'm in your debt

I'm in the fishes.

All these days have come for theirs.

The winds were kind.

No storm waylaid Sawthwood

from his hard walk home.

None in Geatland held so strong the love

of kin as Beowulf.

But coming home he heard the tale.

Friends to the west

slept with slaughter.

...from death upon the Danes.

Great Beowulf alone had best it bares

thought fearless in their mood

for men but now he brought a half score

or more Geat swords

to swing against this thing.

Let's hear the names

Breca the loud.


Right from the seas.

Lost no son in hoisting sword.

Hoisting swords?

He couldn't hoist his own sail.

The huncho. Queller of puffins


...and beer.

Shook his shields to shake the world.

No. Just on that scum troll's head.


Well as we've done these last few years

this sail holds grim bliss for me.

A thing that takes two hundred

in arms is no small thing.

But I will see Valhalla

or that thing's head on a pole.

Aye, aye, aye

So that Danes might say Geats don't

wield words where swords speak truer.

Ayyye. Yea.

Great as our own shield king Is,

there is another nearest kin to me.

None bleed for a better king

than Hrothgar I'd die happy.

Loved as he.

But we live happy even now.

So, Beowulf goes at dawn to the Danes

all you who go along, keep us proud.


And if you can find Hondscioh

a wife our sheep have had enough.



Trollll!!!!!! I call you out!!!!



Meet me the like if you dare!

Or fight me in hell. You hairy creep.

Creep. Creep!



Are you wounded?

The thing wouldn't fight.

It spared me to witness this.

Then get up off your arse

with your Thanes insight.

This is no ground for a game.

Ahh, you're wrong where a king

who has had his balls hauled up

his guts it is the ground.

All the broken bone wretches

I've flung to death.

And to Valhalla.

I don't know.

Is that the look of

a man going happily up to the feast?

Or down to the worms?

You talk like a mad man.
