McPadden: When I was writing this book, more and more low-budget Viking movies were being made. I was trying to catch up, but eventually was like, “Fuck it.” The 1987 film is a good one, because it was gross. This is a slasher film about a Viking that was made on the back end of when the first Jason and Halloween movies were being made. This is about a bunch of young people going camping and instead of running into a guy with a hockey mask, they run into a Viking – a Berserker who wears fur pellets, and its pretty amazing.
Flavorwire: I was thinking of the band Manowar for some reason!
