October Horror Movie Challenge - The Gorgon (1964)

Synopsis: A mysterious creature is petrifying townsfolk in small German town. When his girl friend is killed, artist Bruno, commits suicide. The townsfolk write the deaths off as a murder/suicide, but Bruno's family and professor acquaintance believe there's something more going on.

The Good: This is a classic Hammer Horror flick. It has no vampires, but it does have Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, which honestly, is all you need. 

The Bad: This is pretty standard Hammer stuff. If you're not a fan, you won't like this. 

Final Thoughts: If you want a good classic gothic horror flick, The Gorgon is a good choice.

In Your Game: These are that stats for the gorgon ghost, Megera, who only comes out during the full moon. If the full moon isn't out, she's basically a normal human woman (who doesn't know she houses a gorgon ghost). She's not big bad material, but could make an interesting reoccurring villain/mystery.
