|The Medusa Touch Special Edition (2006)|
(a) Granada Ventures/Network, UK
(b) as The Medusa Touch
[Note: "The British Film" series. This version adds more special features.]
Directed by Jack Gold (The Naked Civil Servant, Kavanagh QC), from a script by John Briley (
Ghandi, Children of the Damned), The Medusa Touch
is a highly-effective, fast paced thriller which ends in a spectacular and spine-chilling climax. This special
edition of the film is sourced from the brand new HD digitally restored master and is presented in its original aspect ratio.
• THE MEDUSA TOUCH (UK/France, 1977)
"I would imagine that this is going to be the most attractive extra on the set and features writers Stephen Jones and Kim Newman
and director Jack Gold chatting for the length of the film, from its first seconds to the very end of the credits. Jones
and Newman are enthusiastic supporters of The Medusa Touch and are happy to point out many of its best moments to
a director who never sounds entirely sure about his film. However, after ninety minutes of listening to them praise much
of his work, even Gold admits, 'I'm beginning to think this is quite well made!' and they conclude on good terms, with an
obvious fondness for the film and with an entertaining commentary."
"The commentary by specialists in the macabre Kim Newman and Stephen Jones actually has you looking at the film afresh and enumerating its virtues (not least of which is Richard Burton's underrated performance)."
