  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Medusa

    I always thought the Medusa myth is ripe for a modern telling. That's precisely what this film tries to do. Too bad it's so-so, very-very dull. Not sure why some say this is an arty film, I never saw anything that resembled that. As an uneventful narrative that doesn't do anything interesting just for the sake of it is not an art film, but a badly written film. The 1st Mondo Macabro release that you can totally skip.
