Overview

Incorporating themes from horror films of both the '50s and the '70s, this suspenseful TV movie stars Cornel Wilde and Jennifer Salt as an archaeologist and his daughter, who discover a strange skull on display at a roadside tourist trap. After the museum owner is killed during an attack from an unseen foe, the pair are subsequently pursued across the American Southwest by a tribe of humanoid creatures that bear a striking resemblance to the gargoyles of myth, leading to a manic game of cat-and-mouse across the desert. This enjoyably spooky film essentially riffs on this one-note premise for over 70 minutes -- sort of an inversion of Night of the Living Dead's claustrophobic scenario -- and fortunately comes off quite well thanks to superb use of the desert locations, an eerie score, uniformly good performances, and Emmy award-winning monster costumes from Stan Winston. A young Scott Glenn appears as a roguish biker who throws in with the good guys after taking a shine to the professor's daughter.

    In the Beginning.....

    During my teenage years, when "Gargoyles" came on one of the cable channels (which usually occured about once every month or so), my friends and I would all get together, order pizza, and have a "Gargoyles Party". Ahh, the memories.....and when I found out that "Gargoyles" had been released on DVD, we had to order a copy for nostalgia sake. We weren't disappointed in that department, although we were disappointed in the "special features" (which are kind of skimpy; but this is a rather obscure title today, so I can't blame the company too harshly for not having more to offer) and the quality is not as sharp as I would have liked (although it's not bad, it's just not crystal clear, as hoped). All in all, if you're a fan of this particular movie, it's well worth the price.
