Grendel Grendel Grendel (1981)

Hoyts Distribution (Australia)
Directed by Alexander Stitt
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

A contemplative monster named Grendel in medieval Denmark spars with a brutal king. He turns to an omniscient dragon for help, who tells him his only purpose in life is to terrify (and occasionally eat) humans. He regularly does so at the famous mead hall, until the arrival of a foreign hero named Beowulf. Literate animated film bites off more than it can chew, so to speak, with poor musical choices and too much comic relief. Peter Ustinov is good, though, as the voice of Grendel.
