A Viking with a conscience, Erik tires of pillaging and decides to set out on a quest. When the wise Freya informs Erik that a great mythic wolf has eaten the sun, the warrior resolves to venture to Asgard, home of the Norse gods, to set things right. Before Erik can reach Asgard, he and his allies must first find a magical horn that resides in the land of King Arnulf, who, luckily for the hero, has a lovely daughter, Princess Aud.

Monty Python's Terry Jones wrote and directed this madcap fantasy (inspired by his own children s book), and the eclectic cast reunites him with fellow Python John Cleese, as well as legends Mickey Rooney and Eartha Kitt. Just as much of the humor of Erik stems from the anachronisms of old Norse mythological figures reacting to adventures with a modern wit, the film of Erik also seems wonderfully out of time -- an anarchic, surreal, wild, 1970s-styled comic adventure arriving at the tail end of the 1980s. Jones continued to experiment with the film after its release, so we are presenting the original international theatrical cut here, along with the new version created by Jones and his son.
