Matthew Le Nevez,
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

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.
