Hammer Time: The Gorgon (1964) Review

The Gorgon (1964) Review

Rating: 2/5 stars A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of watching “Horror of Dracula” – perhaps the quintessential Hammer Horror flick. It was big, bold, and classically executed right ‘till the very end. This one… not so much. Starring Hammer’s two favourite names, Cushing and Lee, The Gorgon […]
