Clash of the Titans

Trivia: In Greek mythology, the winged stallion Pegasus was actually spawned in the moment when Medusa was killed by Perseus; he sprang out of her severed neck.

Trivia: The story of the Kraken was not based on Greek mythology, but is in fact a story from Scandinavian mythology.

Trivia: Although she is listed on the poster and has main title billing, Ursula Andress has only one line of dialogue in the film.

Continuity mistake: When they are fighting the giant scorpions, there are three distinct scorpions fighting. Each of the remaining men faces a scorpion 1 on 1. One of the men dies fighting, and thats the last we see of that scorpion. Thello kills his scorpion, then throws Perseus his sword who then kills his scorpion. The third one just magically disappears.

Acrisius: Bear witness, Zeus, and all you gods on high Olympus! I condemn my daughter Danae, and her son Perseus to the sea! Her guilt and sin have brought shame to Argos! I, Acrisius the King, now purge her crime and restore my honor! Their blood is not on my hands.

More quotes from Clash of the Titans

Question: Is it me, or does Medusa's head open her eyes as Perseus holds her head up after leaving the temple?

Answer: To me, it just looks like the way the prop catches the light as the actor lifts it up, and then higher up, the angle of the prop isn't catching the light in the same way.

Answer: I watched this scene several times on YouTube. When Perseus walks out with the severed head, the eyes are closed. Just as Perseus raises it, Medusa's eyes suddenly appear to open. Zeus is then heard telling Perseus to "fulfil his destiny" amid the thunder and lightning. Her eyes are wide open at this point. I interpreted this as showing that Medusa's power still resides within the head, even though she is dead.
