This post-apocalyptic future story is based on the 8th century Saxon epic poem about the knight who battled a monster in a medieval castle. In this story, Beowulf is a wanderer who learns about a man-eating creature called Grendel which comes in the night to devour warriors trapped at the Outpost. The Outpost is ruled by Hrothgar. He has a daughter, whose husband may have been murdered by the Outpost's master of arms. Written by

A short scene of Grendel having sexual contact with Rhona Mitra's character in her room was shot but left out because it didn't really work and the director later felt that it also wouldn't match with the story. See more »
When Beowulf cuts off the arm of Grendel, we see a left arm hit the ground (look at where the thumb is) but it is Grendel's right arm that is missing. See more »
I love these b genre movies. I won't give them a ten, since they do lack something on the artistic side, but they're great to watch. Sword fights, acrobatics, bare-chested women...everything needed for a good b movie. Add in a semi-literary plot (the name Grendel is only mentioned once) and a few references to the poem. I liked the misty halls and how the siege camp's fires extended off into the distance--can you say dragon? I give it a 9.
