Meet Eric Bloodaxe, the last Viking King of York and a rather colourful figure.
The son of Harald Finehair, King of Norway, Eric earned his nickname by murdering several of his brothers in order to secure his succession to the Norwegian throne.
You will get to meet the barbarian Eric, a murderous tyrant whose savagery was shocking, even by Viking standards! The English King Eadred responded and now you find yourself under attack as the Viking and the Saxon armies turn on one another in the Anglo-Saxon invasion on the Vikings.
A very special video technique is being used to create the effect of the Eric Bloodaxe's talking head. Images are projected on the cast of an actual head of an actor. These images are filmed while the actor's head is secured so that it won't move.
The actor is reliant on his or her facial impression to deliver the best effects of the story. The projections and the cast create the perfect optical illusion special effects you would never get in a museum!

“Me and my girlfriend came to York Dungeon during our visit to the city and we were blown away!
I don't normally go for audience participation attractions but this one drew me in with it's horrific themes. I came to YORK DUNGEON as a reviewer for SNAKEBITE HORROR and I will be recommending that everyone must visit!
Keep up the gory work!!!”Mark See more reviews...
