In early-twentieth-century middle-Europe, villagers are literally becoming petrified. Although the authorities try to hush the matter up it is apparent that at the full moon, Medusa leaves her castle lair and anyone looking on her face is turned to stone. (imdb)

Flawed, and not just in terms of the laughable special effects. Character motivations are hard to fathom, and the attempt at creating some kind of mystery about the identity of the monster is a total failure (hint: there's only one woman in the entire film, duh). You get to see Lee and Cushing face off at the end, but you have to sit through a dry and pretty tedious 70-odd minutes before you get there.

The film's ability to continually switch leading characters is fun, but the only one with any interest or verve is Christopher Lee and he doesn't show up until the last 30 minutes. Otherwise, snooze.

Gets points for originality (using a monster from Greek Mythology in a Gothic setting instead of rehashing a popular, pre-established creature). Also gets points for acting, but It's a Hammer film from the 60s ( all the acting was pretty much great in these). Cushing sports a killer 'stache as does Lee. I suppose matching mustaches were in their contracts for this one. The film is a bit repetitive but occasionally effective. Equal parts classy/great and boring/cheesy. A '70' I say!

Maybe people would like Megaera if she switched shampoos. The dandruff kind just isn't cutting it, but I don't know which brand handles molting.

this movie's just totally fucking bonkers, and the special effects range from decent to totally atrocious. i'm normally more of a cushing fan, and he's good here too, but christopher lee owns the shit out of this movie.

A stylish Hammer outing that ultimately falls a bit short of the monstrous mark.

Rather slow and talky. And with such a tight budget, they definitely shouldn't have dwelt on the Gorgon at the end--its effect is more comical than horrific.
