Gargoyles-[cdcovers_cc]-frontTitle: Gargoyles
Year: 1972
Directed by: Bill L. Norton
Genre: Horror
Starring: Cornel Wilde, Scott Glenn, Jennifer Salt
Aspect Ratio: Fullscreen
Plot: Incorporating themes from horror films of both the ’50s and the ’70s, this suspenseful TV movie stars Cornel Wilde and Jennifer Salt as an archaeologist and his daughter, who discover a strange skull on display at a roadside tourist trap. After the museum owner is killed during an attack from an unseen foe, the pair are subsequently pursued across the American Southwest by a tribe of humanoid creatures that bear a striking resemblance to the gargoyles of myth, leading to a manic game of cat-and-mouse across the desert. This enjoyably spooky film essentially riffs on this one-note premise for over 70 minutes — sort of an inversion of Night of the Living Dead’s claustrophobic scenario — and fortunately comes off quite well thanks to superb use of the desert locations, an eerie score, uniformly good performances, and Emmy award-winning monster costumes from Stan Winston.
Extras: Previews
Audio/Video Quality: A
