Six college students accidentally stumble across the berserker legend when they vacation in a campground in Kainbow Valley, an area settled by Norwegian immigrants. The campsite is abuzz with rumours of a wild bear killing people in the area, including speculation about an old couple who gel lost, but is it really a bear?
That evening, around the campfire, one ol the students reads the Legend of the berserker and the others are alternately amused and spooked, but the luu ends and the terror begins when two of the students branch off lor a romantic tryst, only to discover the dead bodies ol the old couple. After more brutal killings, it is revealed that the berserker is truly on the loose. After a fight with a bear, the Berserker is wounded and then shot by the town sheriff.
