  • Varg Vikernes has claimed that he was portrayed as a "power-hungry lunatic" in this movie, and that this is a deliberate misrepresentation based in part on the cultural misunderstanding of his passion for role-playing games in the 90's. Taking on fantastical personal titles and playing war-games with fictional factions on world atlases has become a normal part of culture now, but was noted as a suspicious form of power-fantasy by police investigators in the 1990's.

As a depiction of the very public emergence of a marginal movement, Lords of Chaos provokes both awe and repulsion, but not necessarily admiration for a musical form and subculture unwaveringly devoted to literalism, no matter how extreme.

Despite the film’s inherent shock value, Lords Of Chaos still manages to successfully mine the explosive psychology of adolescent angst - even if the horror movie aesthetics occasionally threatens to overwhelm proceedings.
