Terrified Netflix viewers can’t sleep after watching ‘grotesque’ horror Viking Wolf
- Those who watched the film found the experience harrowing
Netflix viewers say they couldn’t sleep after watching the movie Viking Wolf, which tells the story of a teenage girl bitten by a medieval werewolf.
Viking Wolf is a low-budget Norwegian horror film that was released on Netflix in February. It did not receive rave reviews and scores 50% on Rotten Tomatoes and 5.2/10 on IMDb.
It is set in a rural Swedish town suddenly plagued by what appears to be a werewolf soon after 17-year-old Thale moves there from Oslo with his mother.
But those who watched the film said the experience was so harrowing they were unable to sleep.
Viking Wolf is a Norwegian horror film about a teenage girl bitten by a medieval werewolf while attending a party in the woods.
The film’s protagonist is a teenage girl named Thale, who is attacked by a werewolf.
Thale moves to the town of Nybo after the death of his father.
She struggles to fit in and resents her mother first, whom she holds partly responsible for her father’s death. Things start to look up when she is invited to a party by a friend from high school.
But the party doesn’t end well – a beast kills a girl and attacks Thale, leaving her with an injured shoulder. Thale then begins his own transition into a werewolf.
The film contains several disturbing scenes. At one point, Thale devours her friend after transforming into a werewolf during a full moon.
Fans took to Twitter to react and comment on the film.
“My 8 year old sister thought she was smart and watched Viking Wolf on Netflix. She snuck into my room around midnight when nightmares have nightmares.
