Gorgo Heads to Blu-ray

Posted January 17, 2013 05:08 PM by Webmaster

VCI EntertainmentIndependent distributors VCI Home Entertainment have revealed that they are planning ot bring to Blu-ray director Eugène Lourié's Gorgo (1961), starring Bill Travers, William Sylvester and Vincent Winter. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is March 19th.

A volcanic eruption in the North Atlantic brings to the surface a 65-foot prehistoric monster. Two treasure divers capture the creature and take him to London where he is put on display in a circus. A scientist is thoughtful enough to point out that the sailors\' bonanza is only an infant, and that a full-grown specimen would be over 200 feet in height. Sure enough, Gorgo\'s mama comes thundering ashore, reclaims her offspring and heads back to sea - but not before she trashes a generous portion of London. The special effects in GORGO, provided by Tom Howard - two-time Academy Award winner, are truly admirable. The monster is quite ferocious - except when he wiggles his ears. Released by MGM in 1961.

Special Features:
  • "Ninth Wonder Of The World: The Making Of Gorgo" a new documentary by Daniel Griffith
  • Gorgo - Video Comic Book and Comic Book Cover Gallery
  • Extensive Lobby Card & Poster Gallery
  • Photo Gallery
  • Gorgo Toys & Collectibles Gallery
  • Production Notes
  • Original Theatrical Trailer
  • Pressbook Gallery
  • Star Ciné Cosmos - French-language "fumetto" (comic book)
  • Before & After Restoration Video

Already a MST3K vet, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcfHEABl_Ko , but nice to see that VCI's moving out of their old PD-vulture past and more into Obscure British Studio PD, after the Christmas Carols.

I'll definitely buy this if the blu-ray review is positive. I've always liked a good giant monster movie like this.

I saw this when it was in the theater. I hope the video quality is better than the dvd. The special features on the Blu-ray look good.
Now if the Japanese model makers will release a Gorgo model like the countless Godzilla models, I'll be happy.

It has been reported elsewhere that the BD will be produced using newly discoverd elements. Partial quote from VCI rep "HD 1080P transfer from either the 35mm negative, or master positive, which we recently obtained after their discovery in a salt mine storage vault in Kansas."

Pretty cool monster flick.

I hope VCI are working on Blood and Black Lace also for BD. It needs an update bad, DVD was not very good.

I am rooting for VCI all the way in this endeavor! I'm rushing to Dorkin's Circus to see Gorgo!

(Now if only 'Waiting for Gorgo' would make it to Blu-ray -- I'd hoped to see it here as an extra feature but just to have a have level image would be fantastic!)

Been wishing for a 1080p upgrade for Children Shouldn't Play with Dead Things!
