Storyboard Text

  • Grendel tears the door from its hinges with his rough, bare hands and immediately devours a Geatish warrior while Beowulf carefully observes.
  • Beowulf viewed the monstrosity that stood before him with a look of disgust. He watched on in horror as Grendel had swooped over and was crouched over the body of the fallen warrior.
  • Beowulf examined just what Grendel was. His legs shaped like that of trunks of trees, and they were covered with a kind of pale grayish dry scales that made a noise like paper as the abomination moved.
  • The body of the beast was shaped like that of a man, but such a man as no mortal eyes had ever before beheld, and the size and shape of it were something to be marveled at.
  • And when Grendel had finished his horrid meal, the beast straightened his deformed body and looked now to the left, then to the right, until his gaze had laid upon the hefty frame of Beowulf.
  • Then the chalk-white eyes that burned with a dull light that resembled the light of the moon focused. Then slowly, and slowly Grendel trudged toward Beowulf.
  • Then the fight became a deadly struggle in one far corner of the hall, and neither one gained any advantage over the other. They continued to wrestle each down, but to no avail.
  • Then Beowulf had slipped. On the earthen floor of Heorot they fell together and collided onto the solid floor. Their fall could have made the earth tremble, as if two giants were fighting in mortal combat.
  • When Grendel reaches out to snatch up Beowulf, he is stunned to find his arm gripped with greater strength than he knew possible. He is instantly overcome with fear.
  • As the crimson blood spilt from Grendel's side, the monster dragged his body onwards. Beowulf had fulfilled his promise, and was victorious. The demon had been slain.
  • Beowulf summons an enormous amount of strength and rips Grendel’s arm clean from its socket. Grendel begins to scream in pain. He lets out an ear shattering shriek that could frighten the devil himself.
  • Fatally wounded, and utterly defeated, Grendel was swallowed by the fog, as he slink his way back to his swampy home to await death.
