32 Days of Halloween IX, Day 5: Gorgo


And now, before we go to our movie for this evening, let’s go to Sir Christopher Lee for a snippet of cinema history: the accessories of Dracula and why the Count was a mute in one of Lee’s appearances. Nice.

And now for something completely different. Generally Day 5 we try to do some sort of giant monster terrorizing mankind, and this year is no exception. We go to 1961 and Gorgo, an homage to Godzilla and, to a certain extent, King Kong as well. It was directed by Eugène Lourié (The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms) and starring Bill Travers (Born Free…no, really) and William Sylvester (2001). Enjoy this madness.
