Creature effects master Stan Winston created the
gargoyles for this bizzare made for television movie that scared
the hell out of me as a child and rests peacefully in my DVD collection
today. An anthropologist and his daughter go in search of mythical
gargoyles and get more than they bargained for. Not spectacular
by today's sci-fi standards, but evidence of film days gone by.
A movie like this would simply never get made in this day and age
and "Gargoyles" is such a gem, its sad to think that a
movie is only as good as its merchandising potential.
