Medusa (1973)

American National Enterprises
Directed by Gordon Hessler
My rating: 1.5 stars out of 4

Drunken playboy George Hamilton is in Greece crashing his sister's wedding. The pair seem to have a very close relationship. Their family fortune, and only source of his income, is threatened by the appearance of a new will. Gangster Cameron Mitchell further muddies the plot demanding repayment of a gambling debt, but Hamilton disposes of him in an interesting boat trip. Later, his murder of a stewardess is not so neat. His conscience eventually gets the best of him, as does his belief in reincarnation, leading to a drastic final act. Vanity work by Hamilton, who also produced, allows him to ham it up with dreadful impersonations and overacting. The Greek scenery is nice, though.
