A feature-length anthology film. They are known as myths, lore, and folktales. Created to give logic to mankind's darkest fears, these stories laid the foundation for what we now know as the horror genre.
A warrior travels wild expanses on horseback, pursuing the monster that murdered his daughter. His thirst for revenge is the driving force of a film constructed with very few elements, minimalistic and epic at the same time, where fantasy and horror find their more physical and gory incarnations (synopsis in the 2018 Sitges Filmfestival programme catalogue).
Slow, steady, stagnant emotions set in throughout the full movie, the story is interesting and mythical, the sliced heads and blood induced ogres were a great addition, when the troll was depicted, I would have loved to know more about the huge creature, and all the other antagonists involved, maybe a bigger budget will lead to a breakaway story
