YEAR RELEASED: 1964
DIRECTOR: Terence Fisher
CAST: Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Richard Pasco
PLOT: In the early 20th century, a Gorgon takes human form and terrorizes a small European village by turning its citizens to stone.
FUN FACT: Christopher Lee is quoted in ‘The Films of Christopher Lee’: “Beautiful-looking picture, but the whole thing fell apart because the effect of the snakes on Megaera’s head was not sufficiently well done for the climax of the film. Not a memorable film, but it could have been terrific.”
140-CHARACTER MINI-REVIEW: Wonderful idea, great to see female baddie, but never reaches its potential
