Viking Wolf Trailer Suggests a Dark, Lupine Tale From the Woods of Norway

Werewolves are everywhere, including Norway! Viking Wolf confirms that, and is touted as the first Norwegian film focused on the supernatural beasts. And based on the trailer, it looks like a small town will be visited by one, with murderous results.

The trailer starts out with a teenage girl watching another teenage girl getting attacked and ripped apart by a mysterious creature in the woods. The surviving girl, Thale (Liv Mjönes, who you might recognize from Midsommar), survives with only a bite on her shoulder. That bite, however, causes some unexpected changes in Thale, one of which leaves her lying on the ground, her mouth covered in blood. Some old dude knows what’s happening (spoiler: there’s a werewolf out there!), though local law enforcement doesn’t buy it (at least at first).

Here’s the movie’s official synopsis:

17-year-old Thale must move with her parents to a small town when her mother gets a job at the local police department. After a student is brutally murdered at a party that Thale attends, she suddenly becomes a key witness. Who, or rather what, was the killer?

The movie comes from director Stig Svendsen, who also wrote the script along with Espen Aukan. In addition to Mjönes, it stars Elli Rhiannon Müller Osborne, Arthur Hakalahti, Sjur Vatne Brean, and Vidar Magnussen.

Viking Wolf sinks its teeth into Netflix on February 3, 2023.
