    The Gorgon

    ★★½

    This is a police state, Mr Heitz.

    Lee and Cushing in a Hammer flick directed by Terence Fischer, so it's that kind of film, with that type of acting and that kind of atmosphere. Unfortunately it's not that exciting. After an hour or so the only thing you've seen is a couple of stone faces, two eerie reflections and one guy turning into stone. Believe me, it sounds creepier than it looks.

I know, the premise is ridiculous, it doesn't make much sense once it gets going, the performances are excessive and it spends way too much time on the detective, his sidekick and the investigation, but, hey, it has a completely over the top Robert Englund playing the villain. In leg braces. And there's possessed machinery. Possessed machinery! I saw that wacko from Silence of the Lambs completely lose his marbles and…
