THE GORGON
Director - Terence Fisher, Screenplay - John Gilling, Story - J. Llewellyn Devine, Producer - Anthony Nelson-Keys, Photography - Michael Reed, Music - James Bernard, Special Effects - Syd Pearson, Makeup - Roy Ashton, Production Design - Bernard Robinson. Production Company - Hammer. 1964.

Cast: Richard Pasco (Paul Heitz), Barbara Shelley (Carla Hoffman), Peter Cushing (Dr Namaroff), Christopher Lee (Professor Meister), Michael Goddliffe (Professor Jules Heitz), Patrick Troughton (Inspector Kanof), Jack Watson (Ratoff)

          Overlooking the village of Vandorf is Castle Borski. Legend talks of an ancient monster who lives there; a legend that exists to this day (the 1800's). When his son Bruno dies under mysterious circumstances, Professor Weitz travels to Vardorf to investigate what happened to his son. He finds instead a veil of secrecy involving Dr. Namaroff and the police. The villagers try to persuade him to leave, but one night he is lured to Castle Borski and is found next day in a stone-like state.
          Professor Meister comes to the village also to investigate and discovers the deaths involve Carla Hoffman and the legendary Greek myth about the hideous Gorgon. According to legend, one look upon the Gorgon's grotesque face would turn a man to stone. Meister discovers the truth and together with Namaroff, goes to Castle Borski and is nearly killed by the monster. Meister sneaks up behind the Gorgon, and using the blade of his knife, is able to decapitate the Gorgon, a hideous creature with flaring red eyes, hissing snakes writhing with its wild hair, and scale-covered skin. The ghastly head rolls down the steps of the castle. Meister then discovers that Namaroff was not so lucky and was turned to stone.
