Viking Vampires Teaser is Heavy Metal and Amusing

Viking VampiresChrister Larsen unveiled a minute-long (or so) teaser for Viking Vampires, the project we first introduced you to last fall. The promo takes a tongue-in-cheek approach and introduces us – in dramatic slow motion accompanied by the grind of heavy metal on the soundtrack – to a group of viking vampires about to storm a town until they encounter some American tourists.

Kjersti Rasmussen and Kjersti Steinsbø penned the script for the film and I’m getting some Dead Snow-esque vibes from the approach to the concept.

In the reality show “Valhalla”, the participants live and compete like Vikings in the beautiful fjords of Norway. The Viking village is built on historic ground where the Viking King Eirik Bloodtooth once ruled and was later buried. Little do they know that the old king is a Viking Vampire who has waited for over a 1,000 years to be set free. When the reality participants plunder his grave at night, they break the seal in silver that kept Eirik Bloodtooth trapped in his grave, and release the most dangerous Viking King in Norwegian history. Soon the participants will discover that “reality” sucks.

Thanks to Twitch for the heads-up!

    cool pitch?

      there is a new pitch now.

      In the year 1012 several kings fought for the throne of Norway. Olav the Holy had the church on his side, and was sure to win the throne. Eirik Bloodtooth hated the church and made a blood pact with a sami shaman from the north who transformed him and his army into vampires, as strong as 10.000 men! But Eirik was betrayed by his brother Håkon, and trapped in a Christian grave for eternity.

      Then the story starts in present time, with a Viking ship sailing down a beautiful fjord in Norway, where we meet LIV (27) an unemployed archeologist taking part in a Viking teambuilding trip to Valhalla Spa Resort. Her half sister TUVA (33) is the boss, and she has given Liv a job to help here out, but forces her to spy on the team from the inside. The sisters are very different, and have a troubled relationship. At the resort Liv can’t resist the urge to dig up an old runestone, and accidently wakes up Eirik Bloodtooth and his two squires, Sigurd and Magnus.
