I don't know why exactly but I wanted to watch this flick for years. It is probably because it was directed by Terry Jones, ex-Monty Python. Anyway, I though it was not bad.

"-----------------Day 2: The most underrated movie.------------------ Honestly, I found this way more tasteful than Monty Python's Holy Grail, but that could be because, for one thing, I don't really enjoy dark humour, and another, that I know a lot more about Norse Mythology than I do about the Holy Grail story.

Roger Ebert's "Zero Stars" -ratings (59 movies items)

""Every once in a while a movie comes along that makes me feel like a human dialysis machine. The film goes into my mind, which removes its impurities, and then it evaporates into thin air. "Erik the Viking" is a movie like that, an utterly worthless exercise in waste and wretched excess, uninformed by the slightest spark of humor, wit or coherence." "
