Default Erik the Viking - Official Announcement

Erik the Viking: The Complete Viking (Arrow Video)

Be There Or Beheaded



In the age of Ragnorok, when all the earth has been laid waste by snow and ice, one Viking must take his men into battle against the very gods themselves in order to bring back the sun.

Meet Erik (Tim Robbins), the worldís most sensitive Norse warrior, a man with little time for pillage and no taste for rape. Erik killed a girl once and he feels very badly about it. Erik isnít really like the other Vikings but now he must take his warrior clan to the gates of Valhalla itself, braving harsh seas, terrifying creatures and horrifically atonal singing along the way.

From Monty Python star Terry Jones comes an hilarious Viking satire that proves you can fight the Gods and still have a good time.

I'm gonna buy it for the nice artwork and the Director’s Son’s Cut alone.

It's a nice, funny, over-the-top flick.

Ooh! Scary! Scary! Don't we look mean? You can't see me! But I can see you!

Greetings!

I'm ashamed to say that I've never seen this - especially considering I do like a bit of Python.

I saw a stage version of it when I was about 8, but that's all!

Curious. Not inspired by this release, I'm afraid.

I would have thought this might been more relevant as an Arrowdrome double-sider then a full price Arrow release.

I read the book when I was young and seem to remember watching the film adaptation, but I can't remember when or how, so this will be a day one purchase for me.
