This is very trainspotterly of me, but still...couldn't help but laugh here...curious to hear the "ancient norse" spoken, I played the sound clip and discovered to my delight that they spoke modern Norwegian rather than old norse, which is pretty much Icelandic. Man, I'm such a loser....

One of the few movies at this website, "Attack of the Crab Monsters" is another, that I liked better then our Andrew.
The story is not original. It is based on a book, which I have, called "The Lost Ones" by Ian Cameron.
The screenwriters did one thing right, I feel. They set the story back about fifty years in the past. As the book takes place in the present, or, as present as 1960 can be. Enjoy!

OMG, I actually saw this. My fourth grade teacher showed it to the class when we were doing a unit on the Vikings. At the time, I thought it was pretty cool. Though even then, I thought the whole "dodging lava" thing was pretty unlikely. Thankfully, I am older and wiser, and can laugh at these things now.

Rule #1 never ever shoot a fire arrow into a hydrogen filled zepplen even if the zig zag pattern and british bulls eye logos make it look like a monster well that at least took care of the vikings superstcious leader and gave them a chance to be freindly

hotNothing burns me more than finding technical glitches in movies!!!  Not that I've seen it yet, but the 'roundel' on the airship could not have been a British target, but a French one....Of course the only difference would have been the reversal of the color in the outer ring....Red, white and blue, or blue white and red....
  I do hate it when I'm watching an old 'b' flick or even the hi-budget ones and the Africa Corp cap has an Edelweiss pin...Which of course denoted mountain troops...
  But I digress, being an asatruar [google it}, I would love to catch this flick sometime...Maybe I'll stumbleupon Netflix next....Balthor

I just bought the 30th Anniversary edition of this. Hmmm... wonder why they didn't make a big stink about pulling this one out of the 'ol Disney vault?

But I loved this movie as a kid and I still get a kick out of watching it now and then. I absolutely LOVED your review of it, as it injected some modern humor into a nice effort on film from over 30 years ago. Great job!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
