This meticulously researched and engrossing documentary is an exploration of the strange and bizarre sculptures that have stood watch over portals for over 4,000 years. Gargoyles have always both frightened and fascinated people with their strange power, giving rise to myths and legends to explain their presence and function. Are they the souls of the condemned, or protective spirits, demonic beings, or comical ornament' Mining the history of these grotesque stone beasts, the documentary features interviews with stonemasons, historians, theologians, and other experts; through them, audiences come to discover the mystery, whimsy, and spiritual purpose behind the grimace.
