Gargoyles

Gargoyles ★★

Bernie Casey plays kings of a monstrous race of gargoyles in a film peopled with histrionic white folk. It's easy to poke ideological holes in films like this one, but not very satisfying. It's a super cheap 70s made-for-TV film that, despite its B grade shoddiness, is jolly entertaining and zooms along during its 74 minutes at a fairly brisk pace. Scott Glen fans might be pleased to see him in one of his earliest films, having already developed his trademark intensity. There's a lot to love in this silly little film that doesn't seem to really know what its doing, but if you're up for it and watch it with a generous heart and a good group of friends, it's a fun ride.
