Medusa: The Ninth Gate

Clementon, NJ

#1 Jan 29, 2013
Medusa is the Greek mythological villain deity avatar who has the terrifying ability to turn men into stone with her poisonous gaze. If a man stares into her hypnotic eyes, he turns forever into dead stone.

Medusa is a semi-snake woman with a sexy body and head of hair made of venomous snakes.

The timeless historic war story of Helen of Troy involved the beautiful Greek woman Helen whose kidnapping catalyzed the legendary Trojan War between Greece and the majestic city of Troy (shocking predecessor to Rome). From this war story, depicted in various folk stories, most notably the ancient lyric, "The Illiad" (Homer), human cultures have extrapolated imaginative religious cautionary stories about how a woman's beauty and seductive charms can inspire men to war and sinful gluttony.

Because of the universal psyche appeal of the haunting story of Helen of Troy, scholars and poets alike have pondered how similar folk avatar stories such as those of the avatar Medusa timelessly represent human fasination with characterizng the ritual relationship between sin and a woman's tempting beauty.

The classic Italian poet Dante and the modern noir Hollywood (USA) film-maker Roman Polanski have both explored the symbolic relationship between human ambition and ethics frailties. Indeed, one can translate such considertions into a meaningful portrait of Medusa's artistic mastery of the prophetic 'Ninth Gate,' or, the final conscious journey into a complete loss of practical morals.

Is Medusa truly the symbolic gatekeeper of the eerie Ninth Gate of evil?

How do feminine charm-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "She-Devil" (1989) and "Whore" (1991) socially echo this cautious sentiment?

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
