Reviews [click links to read more]:
“B.C. and Jeffrey have, to use a phrase I tend to employ often, done a lot with not much at all here. Some impressive rural photography and great turns from some of Jeffrey’s regulars in unusual (for them) roles – namely Cohen and Wright – make this a slow-burn delight with a solid heart.” Dark Eyes of London
Medusa: Queen of the Serpents premiered at the Soho Horror Film Festival in London in 2020.
