Films: Berserker (1987)
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: Back then, the Vikings of the Norse lands lived for battle, and all the glory that came with it. But now that time is gone, and we're wishing this pinhead got the message a bit sooner.
History: Long ago, Rainbow Valley was colonized by ancient Vikings. Those days are long lost to history and legend, but who says legends ever die? For wandering the woods is a lone Berserker dressed in bear garb, looking for intruders to ruthlessly slaughter.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: As daylight falls onto the woods, the Berserker is shot to death by a policeman. He does rise again when everyone leaves, but not before his armor mysteriously fades away. Could he have been given a second chance at a less barbaric life?
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 3-Oh sure, he is quite strong and violent, but he doesn't really look that scary. All he can do is run around roaring and looking like a rejected gimmick wrester. Also, we're not quite sure we was that qualified to be a Berserker to begin with.
Trivia: -The original Nordic berserkers ("berserk" means "bear-shirted") were a type of Viking warrior who fought in a trance-like state of rage, and were divided into bear, wolf, and boar clans. The bear-type berserkers, the ones this one was no doubt inspired by, lived by a code of giving into their fury so that the opposition would hardly slow them down. They say that they were so terrifyingly strong that they appeared to actually turn into the bears they worshipped.
-The location of Rainbow Valley was Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah.
