Beowulf & Grendel is a medieval adventure, part legendary fable, part horror-story. It tells the blood-soaked tale of a warrior's battle against a murderous troll, Grendel, who has laid seige to the kingdom of Hrothgar, king of the Danes. Out of allegiance to Hrothgar, Beowulf leads a troop of warriors across the sea to rid a village of the marauding monster. The monster, Grendel, is a creature of immense flesh and raging blood, driven by a vengeance from being wronged. Beowulf's willingness to kill on behalf of Hrothgar wavers when it becomes clear that the King is more responsible for the troll's rampages than was first apparent. Beowulf & Grendel is a tale where vengeance, loyalty and mercy powerfully entwine. A story of blood and beer and sweat, Beowulf & Grendel strips away the mask of the hero-myth, leaving a raw and tangled tale.
