Limited Edition Blu-ray

Combining the Gothic flourishes of their hugely popular Dracula and Frankenstein films, but this time taking inspiration from Greek myth, The Gorgon concerns a series of mysterious deaths in the small German town of Villandorf, in which the victims are turned to stone...

Reuniting the Hammer ‘dream team’ of director Terence Fisher and iconic stars Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, The Gorgon is one of Hammer's most complex and intriguing films of the period.
