(au) wrote: It seems like such a bleak situation when so many people are displaced or hurt by war; it's good to know that some were able to escape it and, rather than be crushed by the cultural change of coming to America, they were able to make something of themselves and help their people back home.
(it) wrote: Brilliant premise, beautifully filmed. The cast is perfectly suited to telling this timeless story of natural faith and wonder. Ben Kingsley is wonderfully dark in his portrayal of a local priest, Reverend Templeton, who condemns that which he cannot -- or will not? -- understand. To say more will spoil the rich delights awaiting all who view this treasure.

(ag) wrote: Mid sixties Hammer 'horror' film take on Greek mythology. I actually began the film feeling I was watching Dracula again what with similar lighting, music score and painted studio background of an abandoned castle overlooking the German countryside.It is the early twentieth century and a series of dead bodies are turning up as stone. The town authorities, the police and Dr. Namaroff (Peter Cushing) seem to be covering the deaths up. Each having occurred over the previous few years on full moon nights.It is only the arrival of Professor Meister (Christopher Lee) from Leipzig University who begins to piece together the mystery of the deaths.Apparently they are due to an ancient character called Magaera. When someone stares at Magaera they die a death turning to stone.Magaeras is a character with a head of snakes. Quite a challenge for 1964 filmmakers limited by technology and budget.The effect is obtained using a snake filled wig worked by wires.The Magaera (Gorgon monster) have lived on in a character in the film and she is only released from it by having her head decapitated. Quell more awful yet laughable special effects.The film ends abruptly.Lee has few lines but still has a towering (quite literally!) presence in the film.Cushing reprises his brain obsessed Dr. character from other Hammer films.For such a low budget film that could have been filmed in your living room it is quite a good Hammer film and I would recommend visiting it.
