In 709 A.D., in the Iron Age, a spacecraft crashes in the Viking kingdom of Herot, Norway, and the pilot Kainan (Jim Caviezel) survives. He turns the beacon on; learns the language and culture of the planet using a machine; and finds that the predator, Moorwen, that he was transporting, had escaped.

This is the first movie in history to feature Old Norse, the ancestor of Modern Icelandic and several other Scandinavian languages. Writer and Director Howard McCain used an Icelandic professor to help translate the dialogue and to teach the actors and actresses how to speak the ancient language. See more »
Shield Hall is shown at the beginning of the movie built around a tree. During the shields competition the tree is shown in full leaf. This part of the tree wouldn't have leaves since there's no natural light. See more »
All of the women are talking about you. They say you're from a place far beyond the ice. I heard one say - from the home of the gods.
What do you think?
I think - she was a little drunk.

Space monster actionfest set in Viking times - what are you waiting for?!!
It's a real shame I haven't seen a single preview or a billboard for this movie. Whatever, though - the box office opportunity was wasted because someone or other didn't have faith in humanity (I mean seriously, anyone with a droplet of testosterone in them would find this highly entertaining, so of course there's a market for it), but this movie's cult status is assured.
Spaceship carrying terrifying bloodthirsty monster and a mysterious hero (well, not that mysterious) crash lands on Earth during Viking times. I repeat - Vikings! Swords, battles, mead- drinking and all-around Norse badarsery are featured prominently. The acting is good for the most part, the writing isn't stupid and formulaic, and the director keeps a brisk pace throughout the film. And the space monster is simply terrific, imbued with the perfect amount of personality.
If I was 10 years old when I watched it, I would have been running around on the ceiling for months. Being the mature and responsible grown man I am now, I didn't exactly do that - instead, I recommended it to all my friends and watched it 3 times.
