In Paris, two workers find a hidden chamber while digging the underground of the Saint Jean André Church. They collect the valuable objects in the spot but they are attacked by a creature. Meanwhile, the discredited Professor Jack Randall, who wrote a book about Gargoyles rejected by the experts, is encouraged by his friend Carol Beckham to peek the place out. They sneak in the site during the night and while Carol is collecting some artifacts, Jack is recording with his camera. Out of the blue, Jack sees a winged monster coming towards him and he flees from the location with Carol, but breaks his camera. They go to a bar and a huge stone falls over his car. Jack takes a cab to his boarding house and Carol is attacked and beheaded by a Gargoyle at her apartment. On the next morning, Jack identifies Carol's body and becomes the prime suspect of Inspector Gibert of several murders.

An okay monster movie for a rainy afternoon
1 January 2011 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Delving back into the Sci-fi Channel's man eater series I found RISE OF THE GARGOYLES, an okay monster movie featuring above average acting and a reasonable storyline, my standards were considerably low because this film was directed by Bill Corcoran who also directed another man eater film called VIPERS and believe me if you've seen VIPERS, I won't blame you if you're hesitant about seeing this film.

Fortunatly, this film is a whole lot better than VIPERS, its also not something I would tell the world about but at least its nowhere near as bad as VIPERS, the acting in this film is actually pretty good considering the material and the storyline is done well enough for the film to be entertaining.

The CG effects are tough to judge because during the film the monster is barely seen and when it is seen, you never get a close up look at the monster its always shown from a distance, the one thing you can tell when you eventually see it, is that it is done with CGI.

Overall, RISE OF THE GARGOYLES isn't something I would go out of my way to recommend but if there's nothing else to watch, then I recommend it
