It’s always a good time for a new horror movie, and Netflix has a couple coming out this February, like The Strays, Re/Member, and Viking Wolf. Viking Wolf, or Vikingulven as it’s called in Norway, has been promoted as the country’s first werewolf movie.

Based on the trailer, the upcoming creature feature seems to hit a lot of familiar beats, including a teenager being turned into one of these monstrous wolves and becoming a threat to her family and friends. Arriving Friday, February 3, Viking Wolf promises to be a scary, dark teen scream.
