Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Varg Vikernes has claimed that he was portrayed as a "power-hungry lunatic" in this movie, and that this is a deliberate misrepresentation based in part on the cultural misunderstanding of his passion for role-playing games in the 90's. Taking on fantastical personal titles and playing war-games with fictional factions on world atlases has become a normal part of culture now, but was noted as a suspicious form of power-fantasy by police investigators in the 1990's.

Goofs When Euronymous is introducing Manheim as the drummer in the rehearsal space, Manheim is sitting behind a 5 piece, single bass, blue drum kit. When they being playing, he's sitting behind a 9 piece, double bass, blue and white drum kit. See more »
