Inferior is a project for an independent Swedish Viking film, announced in November 2013, written and directed by Peter Grimefjord and set to star Thomas Hedengran.[1][2]

The film is set in Jamtaland in 1088, at the time of the Christianization of Scandinavia. The protagonist is a pagan called Grim who is attacked and enslaved by a Christian leader called Joar. Haunted by the spirits of his dead family and by Odin, Grim is planning his revenge.[3]

Background[edit]

Grimefjord stated that his wish was to make a movie about Vikings which was more rooted in the Icelandic saga tradition and based on historical knowledge and facts about Vikings and Norse mythology rather than cliches. He also wanted to challenge the view that the conversion was free of violence and pain. The film will feature minimal dialogue.[4][5][6] A pilot trailer featuring music by Wardruna was released on November 6, 2013.[7]
