The police are unable to solve the series of mysterious deaths and the local doctor, Namaroff (Cushing) can't explain why some of the victims have been turned to stone. What is the terrible creature that has moved in to the derelict castle? And what is its connection to Namaroff's beautiful assistant Carla (Shelley)?
The Gorgon is one of the strangest films that Hammer ever made. It isn't simply the sight of a creature from Greek mythology transplanted directly into familiar Gothic territory (a crossover never properly accounted for), but also the eerie atmosphere that gives the film an almost fairy-tale quality. True, the plot does not make a great deal of sense but Terence Fisher strives for a lyricism seldom found in his work, imbuing the film with an almost melancholic tone.
Perhaps it's this distinctive quality that's caused it to be overlooked for so long. But although it is hardly typical of Hammer's output, it ranks as one of their most interesting pictures.
