31 Days of Halloween - Day 24 - Movie 1

An anthropologist (Cornel Wilde) and his daughter (Jennifer Salt) following a research lead in the American Southwest, find themselves in conflict with a colony of gargoyles who initially present themselves as just wanting to be left alone in isolation, but may actually have more sinister plans in mind.

Gargoyles (1972), the made for tv movie, is something I haven't seen in a long, long time. It holds up better than I remembered it. The story is pretty compelling, and moves briskly without many dead spots, and the gargoyle suits by Stan Winston and Ellis Burman are pretty impressive, especially given how many of them appear on screen and how small a budget and schedule they must have been working with at the time. Nicely done.
