Berserker (a.k.a Berserker: The Nordic Curse) is a 1987 horror film in the "slasher film" genre, in which a Viking berserker serves as the killer. It was written and directed by Jefferson Richard.


According to an old Nordic legend, a Berserker was a bloodthirsty warrior who ate human flesh, forbidden a restful death and fated to be reincarnated in their blood kin. Six college students accidentally stumble across the Berserker legend when they vacation in a campground in Rainbow Valley, an area settled by Norwegian immigrants. The camp is abuzz with rumours of a wild bear killing people in the area, including speculation about an old couple who get lost. But is it really a bear?
