The Norseman (1978) Blu-ray: Vikings in America

U.S. label Scorpion Releasing will be releasing director Charles B. Pierce’s campy period piece, The Norseman (1978) on Blu-ray. Stars Lee Majors.

After his father, King Eurich (Mel Ferrer), goes missing on an expedition, Viking prince Thorvald (Lee Majors) launches a journey to find him. Accompanied by his loyal friend, Ragnar (Cornel Wilde), and the eccentric mystic Death Dreamer (Jack Elam), Thorvald sails to a faraway land where he discovers that a local tribe has captured the king and his men. Thorvald and his crew attempt to free their kinsmen, aided by a beautiful native woman named Winnetta (Susie Coelho).

An unconvincing, stilted adventure with a very ’70s looking Lee Majors cast as a Viking leading his men into the New World while searching for his missing father. A low-budget AIP cheesefest that, at least, isn’t as boring as 2007’s Pathfinder.
