Today's post is about the Gorgon. Specifically I am talking about Medusa, the gorgon from the 1981 film Clash of the Titans. I love a good monster. When I was little I remember watching Clash of the Titans on our VCR. The scene with the gorgon was one of the coolest scenes I had ever watched. Ray Harryhausen was a master of special effects, and his monsters had a realness and creepiness to them that today's CGI cannot mimic.
