virgins. Cameron Mitchell (KNIVES OF THE AVENGER)
stars with Andrea Checchi (BLACK SUNDAY), George
Ardisson (HERCULES IN THE HAUNTED WORLD) and the luscious Kesslar Twins in this epic of ferocious color and design, bursting with more chained maidens and shocking violence than any other Viking movie of the era. ERIK THE CONQUEROR also known as FURY OF THEVIKINGS and THE INVADERS has been fully restored from original European vault materials and is now presented uncut and uncensored for the first time ever on DVD.

Erik the Conqueror is a great film in TWO languages.

`Erik the Conqueror', directed by Mario Brava, explores the destinies of two young Viking sons, Erik and Eron. Separated as young men during a British raid by the forces of Queen Anne, the brothers live in two different worlds. Queen Anne raises Erik as her own son, while Eron lives a bitter life. Growing to adulthood, the two men become enemies when Eron leads a Viking horde against the British commanded by Erik. Behind the scenes, a malevolent Sir Rutford, plots to take the throne via marriage, or villainy.

A great battle ensues as the Norsemen attack England, and one death strike short of victory, the two brothers discover each other and declare peace as Rutford plays his card. `Erik the Conqueror' is a stirring action film, filmed on rugged coasts, and executed splendidly in Italian and English!

Cameron Mitchell stars as Eron, while Alice and Ellen Kessler star as Daya and Rama, love interests for the two brothers. George Ardisson, Andrea Checchi and Francoise Christophe round out the well cast film adding realism and romance to this 1961 cult film.

The return of `Erik' to american audiences includes an audio interview with Cameron Mitchell, film trailers, and the option to watch the film in Italian or English. Try the Italian, and read the titles, you'll find the story tells itself.

The transfer from the original Italian master is great, the color and image is sharp and very clear. Be careful to set the language to English or you get the original Italian with sub titles. Is it a masterpiece, no, but it is a fine specimen of the early 1960's sword and sexy women epics.

This is a beutifully made epic,directed (and photographed) by italian
movie genius Mario Bava.It stars the magnificent Cameron Mitchell,the
beutiful Kessler sisters,Alice and Ellen,and a great italian actor,George
(Giorgio) Ardison.
Mitchell and Ardison, had allready starred in another viking epic "The
last of the vikings" Fairly good,but not as near as good as this one.
The dvd features a superbly restored ,uncut version of the film.Get it!

I was introduced to these old films through Net-Flix, seeing "Knives of the Avenger" I then looked them up on Amazon being a sword & sorcery nut or nuts for any movie set in the era of the use of swords. After looking them up I discovered they are considered a sort of trilogy. They are all independent films with no relationship to each other, other than that fact that they are all starring Cameron Mitchell & are all three Viking movies. I don't know in what chronological order they were made, but in my opinion "Erik the Conqueror" is the best closely followed by "Knives of the Avenger" & then " The Last of the Vikings". None of these movies were ever made to win a Oscar, but they are all three great fun. I'm still waiting on "Knives of the Avenger." but so far "Erik the Conqueror" has received the best treatment as far as to the quality of digital restoration aspect ratio & general overall quality of the D.V.D. If your expecting to see a 50's, 60's type epic all star cast Technicolor extravaganza like "The Vikings" starring Kirk Douglas & Tony Curtis, you will be disappointed. However if your a fan of this genre & are looking to bulk up your collection all three of these movies are great escapist action period pieces. I give them five stars for what they are, fun fantasy adventure filmed on a low budget but with obvious love for the genre. The acting is adequate, the costumes & set's are like wise. The cinematography is exceptional and the story lines are believable and well paced. Being older film's although violent they are not overly graphic & could be enjoyed by the whole family on a rainy afternoon or cold winters night. If you are a critic with your blade at the ready to slice & dice don't bother, If your open to a little fun then snatch them up while they last at a affordable price!Read more ›
