Ready for Halloween? We’ve got your candy.
We’ve been waiting over a year for news on DRAUG, the dark fantasy horror tale set in the age of Vikings, and now we’ve been blessed with a trailer. To wet your ax and get you in the mood, we’ve even got some cool new stills and a poster below.
It was over a year ago that we first told you about DRAUG. Since then, the team has been working hard, prepping for an early 2018 release. From the same creators of the award-winning zombie web series, The Great Dying, DRAUG does what I love: mixes Horror with the Historical. Draugr (plural) are decaying, flesh-eating beasts of Norse mythology who usually are guarding treasure and possessed of super-human strength. In other words, definitely a handful for any 11th Century villager. Ax-swinging is pretty much guaranteed.
The film is directed, produced and written by the team of Klas Persson and Karen Engman. It stars a great lineup of Swedish talent, including Elna Karlsson, Thomas Hedengran, Lina Hedlund and Oscar Skagerberg.
Grab a helmet, pour a drink and toast with a rousing Helan Går. DRAUG has risen at Modern Horrors.
