Prince Valiant (Prinz Eisenherz)

Prince Valiant

Valiant is squire at Camelot, the court of King Arthur. Little does he know that he is the rightful heir to the throne of Thule. The Vikings are ruling there under the equally cruel and decadent brothers Sligon and Thagnar. With the help of the witch Morgan Le Fey - King Arthur's rejected sister - they have stolen Excalibur and are threatening to use it to deprive Camelot of its power. After many action-packed adventures with knights, giants and dwarfs fighting for the magical sword Valiant wins the love of the beautiful and wild princess and learns of his true origins.

Anthony Hickox Often called the »Stephen King of directing«, British-born Anthony Hickox moved to the USA in the late 1980\'s where in 1987 he wrote and directed his first film, the horror-comedy Waxwork, for which he won several international awards. The success of Waxwork led to a sequel, a comics spin-off and a CD-ROM game. In between the two Waxwork films, Hickox wrote and directed the cult comedy Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat (1991) and, in 1992, he directed the horror hit Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth. His other work includes Warlock: The Armageddon (1993), Payback, Full Eclipse and Invasion Of Privacy (1995). Hickox also appears as the knight Sir Gawain in Prince Valiant.
