    Heathen Movies?

    If one considers the myth of "Der Ring des Nibelungen" as heathen, here are two that are Classics in this Genre:

    1. "Siegfried"
    2. "Kriemhild's Revenge"

    By: Fritz Lang
    Year: 1924
    Type: B/W - silent
    Music Score: Wagner's "Der Ring des Nibelungen"

    Ahem. Why are fantasy movies like "Eragon" and "In the Name of the King" being considered "Heathen"?

    Elementally, they are heathen. Maybe I should have subcategorized.

    Would the Wicker Man be classified as Heathen or not?

    Elementally? By which element do you call those films as heathen?
    A script and some characters placed in a fantasy world is not a prerequisite for identifying a film as "heathen". A fantasy story, yes but it barely has any resemblance with our heathen heritage.
