Whispers and Ghosts

The background to the story: The Vikings had these 7 scrolls (not rings) that "gave power and prosperity to those who possessed them." But apparently not enough power as the Christians sacked the villages and took them. They were given to a Celtic king, who likewise was killed and the scrolls were given to monks as well as the king's daughter. There is a prophecy that involves the offspring of "pure royal blood" whatever that was in those ages as royalty was a crap shoot. The dead king's daughter, Orla (Hollie Burrows) trained by monks is finally grown up as the Vikings have finally figured out where the scrolls are located. The monastery is being sacked as Orla escapes with a book. The monks who likewise had the powerful scrolls were also killed. Sorry for that opening plot spoiler.

I guess there were 200 Vikings, but they were almost all killed in a battle with the indigenous. A great fight scene they don't show us, just a clearing (battlefield) with a sword stuck in the ground. Sven (James Cooke) the traitorous son of the Viking King helps Orla because....umm....he is an honorable Viking? The 200 Vikings is now 4 or 5...just enough for a low budget film. Sven carries a hatchet but they call it an axe...just imagine it is larger.

My favorite line: "I will find you. I swear by the last breath of Odin." Yup that was convincing. Acting and lines went missing with the 200 Vikings.

Guide: No swearing...other than that Odin thing. Implied sex. Male butt nudity. Dark night near nudity.

Don't waste your time

I am so glad I only spent $1.50 on Renting this B movie from Redbox. The acting is horrible. The only reason why I watched the movie for 20 minutes was the leading actress is very cute. Other than that the nothing noteworthy. If you live in Siberia or Alaska stuck inside side 1/2 the year maybe this might be one of the last movies You watch.

Two for the effort, but they shouldn't have bothered.

This film sucks and no one should watch it. There really is no reason to make this film, release it or worst of, charge people for it.

When you spend $100 making a film and charge people a normal admission/DVD/BR/rental fee compared to a $100m film, there's something off.

I don't know what the budget of this film is, but it's probably nothing. If you're curious as to know what kind of production this is, watch the trailer, or look at Tornado Films' website.

The question remains - how do you make a medieval/viking film with no money? The answer is simple, you don't. You just don't. Questions like "how do you build a house for $800 or a car for $200" should be avoided.

If you want to make a film with no money, set it in 2016 where you already have tons of 2016 stuff like clothes, music, furniture, cars, etc. If you want to make a film in 816, it's gonna cost ya.

There are ways of doing it cheap(er), but not with almost no money. "Battles" with 6 people look ridiculous. Cheap looking costumes always give Halloween vibes.

There are medieval reenactment hobbyists that go to the park on Sunday that have a more professional looking setup.

I'm guessing these guys did this thing for fun, but they shouldn't be selling it as if it were a real film. Put it on Youtube or Vimeo. I didn't pay for it (friend had the Blu- ray) and I still felt that it was a waste of time.

I really wonder how they'll recoup the costs of this production, but considering how little they put into it, it might just take a few dozen rentals.

I applaud the courage to go out and make a film. Everyone wants to do it, but not anyone can do it. But not everyone should either and not every tiny idea should become a film.
