I just found out about this movie and found it online the other day. It’s based on a Danish comic book series called Valhalla about Norse mythology. It’s never been translated into English, unfortunately. The delightful movie, based on the myth of Thor and Loki’s contest with Utgard-Loki, above was made in 1986. It was originally filmed in English but never released on VHS or DVD in English.

There’s a dl here, but my computer doesn’t like it. However, my computer is unusually cranky about what video files it will play. If someone would let me know if that file is playable on less temperamental computers, I’d appreciate it. ETA: I’m told that it’s not watchable so I’ve taken it down. I’ll convert the file and try re-uploading it tomorrow.

Bits of the movie can be watched on youtube. Here is an official trailer, and here is Loki’s eating contest with fire, which was my favorite scene in the movie. As you can see, Loki is as so often queer-coded.

Here’s a still of Thor and Loki from the movie, being pals. 


I was told the DL file I uploaded earlier wasn’t playable, so everyone try this one.

Merry Christmas.
