The Classic Era Grue-Crew, with the help of Ralph Miller III, tackles the Ray Harryhausen stop-motion masterpiece, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. Kerwin Matthews is Sinbad. Kathryn Grant is Princess Parisa. Richard Eyer is Barani, the Genie. And, Torin Thatcher is Sokurah. The film is filled with beautifully crafted monsters: giant Rocs, a horned Cyclops, a dragon, and a skeleton warrior – and more. All this and “Dynamation!” as well. Yes sir, a Monster Kid’s dream. All this and they forgot to mention second unit director Eugenio Martino, the director of Horror Express (1972).
At the time of this writing, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad is available to stream with ads from Tubi and Crackle, as well as multiple PPV suppliers. It is also available on physical media in a Blu-ray format from various companies as an individual film or as part of a collection.
Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. Up next in their very flexible schedule, chosen by Chad, will be Faust (1926), directed by F.W. Murnau and starring Emil Jannings. This will be the eighth silent horror movie covered by the Classic Era Grue-Crew. Bring on the intertitles!
