Viking Wolf Trailer Promises a Tense Lycanthropic Thrill Ride

I’m a sucker for werewolf movies. After vampires, they’re probably my second favorite human-sized monsters, so I’m always up for a fun lycanthropic adventure. Unfortunately, the subgenre is almost preternaturally thin, so good new werewolf films are super hard to come by. But I think I just might’ve found the next diamond in the rough. This Friday, Netflix is releasing a Norwegian werewolf movie called Viking Wolf, and the streaming service just dropped a trailer for it. Here’s what the film is about:

17-year-old Thale must move with her parents to a small town when her mother gets a job at the local police department. After a student is brutally murdered at a party that Thale attends, she suddenly becomes a key witness. Who, or rather what, was the killer?

That plot synopsis is admittedly pretty vague, but the trailer more than makes up for it. Right from the opening shot, it’s dripping with a tense feeling of dread and suspense, and it never lets up. It gives the impression that this movie is going to be more than just a generic gorefest, so if you’re a fan of atmospheric horror, it looks like this is the werewolf film for you.

On top of that, the Viking Wolf trailer also lets us in on a bit more of the story, and it’s just as promising. Not only is there a werewolf running around town, but it seems like the main character has a much more personal predicament to deal with as well. She’s apparently been bitten or scratched by the monster, and she has to find a way to stop her own transformation into a bloodthirsty creature of the night (but from the looks of it, she doesn’t succeed!).

When you combine that cool plot tease with the great atmosphere, you get one hell of a trailer, so I can’t wait to check out Viking Wolf. The film hits Netflix on February 3, so thankfully, we won’t have to wait very long.
