"Night of the Were-Dragon"

Films: The Gorgon (1964)

Alias: Carla Hoffman

Type: Mystical

Location: Haunted Home/Civilized Area

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Gorgons are the living personification of the saying about how looks can kill. One glimpse of that face and boom! You’re stone. Here's a contemporary one.

History: Megaera was a feared gorgon back in the day, but she's been dead for more than 20 centuries. However, her spirit lives on, and it's taken host in innocent Carla Hoffman. Every night, she resides in a dubious lair, turning any intruder into stone.

Notable Kills: She turns people to stone, even if they're just looking at their reflections.

Final Fate: While Meg's distracted killing another, one man takes the liberty of lopping off her head with a sword. She reverts back to human form upon death.

Powers/Abilities: Stone. That's all we need to say at this point.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-Do NOT look into this hag's face (even if the snakes look pitifully fake). If you do, prepare to have your body turn to solid granite in a slow, painful process.

Trivia: -Megaera was played by Barbara Shelley, who was best known for playing one of Dracula's targets in "House of Dracula".

-The gorgon's namesake comes from "gorgos", the Greek word for "repulsive".

Don't drag Egypt's mythology into this.

Should have invested in a sheild. Perseus had the right idea.
He just figured out that this film will be lost to the test of time.

Now would be a good time for periphial vision.
The horrors of violence displayed in full and Megaera isn't even here to participate.

I expect a winged horse to spring from that stump.
