Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Definitely Hammer at its best."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The Gorgon is an interesting addition to the ... pantheon of classic monster movies - a sort of tragic love story told as a Gothic fairy tale."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Fares slightly better [than The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll]."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid

‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"It's too bad the make-up department couldn't get right the look of The Gorgon ... ."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
