%%* ARealManIsAKiller: And how!

%%* ARealManIsAKiller: And how! * ArtisticLicenseHistory: The film makes very few historical claims, but even then they don't match up very well. UsefulNotes/TheCrusades were triggered in 1095, about a century later than the purported setting of the movie.-- While the period around 1000 AD saw indeed some violent confrontations between pagans and Christians in Norway, such religious struggles had little impact in the British Isles. Then again, it's never really specified whether the first part of the movie is supposed to take place in Scotland (where it's filmed), or possibly in Norway.



%%* ReligiousHorror: All over the place.

* FollowTheLeader: Althrough it was not a commercial success, the visual look and style of this film has informed many other viking-related films since like ''Hammer of the Gods'', ''Vikings - The Berserkers'', ''Sword of Vengence'' and even ''Vikings''. The highly contrasted and desaturated look and the vikings as Hells Angels/Mad Max-marauders where coined by this film.

* {{Badass}}: The main character is so ruthlessly and emotionlessly good at killing that the other Vikings are afraid of him.
