In 1964 Hammer Films released The Gorgon and The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb as a double feature. The Colonial is thrilled to replicate that double feature in our iconic 1903 theatre.
The Gorgon (1964) – 1h 23m
Dir: Terence Fisher, UK. 1964. 93 minutes. DCP
A mysterious monster is turning people to stone in a German village in 1910. When his girlfriend is killed, Bruno (Jeremy Longhurst) becomes the prime suspect. His ensuing suicide seems to confirm his guilt, but professor Carl Maister (Christopher Lee) isn’t so sure. He thinks one of the villagers is possessed by the spirit of Megaera, sister to Medusa. Among the possible culprits are Dr. Namaroff (Peter Cushing), nurse Carla (Barbara Shelley), and a mental patient.
The Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb (1964) – 1h 21m
(Dir: Michael Carreras, UK. 1964. 81minutes. Blu-ray)
Greedy American Alexander King (Fred Clark) makes an excursion to Egypt, where he hopes that archaeologist Sir Giles Dalrymple (Jack Gwillim) and young assistant John Bray (Ronald Howard) can help him unearth ancient treasures. But they eventually run into Adam Beauchamp (Terence Morgan), an accursed man with a long family history of hauntings. Adam’s mere presence is enough to awaken mummy Ra-Antef (Dickie Owen), putting the entire expedition in grave danger.
