This ancient Greek monster movie, Odysseus and the Isle of the Mists, tells how the ancient poet, Homer, as an old man recalls the adventures of his youth, tagging along with King Odysseus and his men, gathering information to eventually help him write his masterpiece:
This movie is actually a forgotten adventure, never included in the manuscript. It has harpy creatures and also the Underworld Queen Persephone. And the acting is cool enough, with King Odysseus played by 2001’s The Mummy Returns himself, Arnold Vosloo.
But unfortunately, we don’t get any Cyclops. Instead, we get Homer asking his shipmates about the time they outwitted a Cyclops. Homer wasn’t there, but he’s eager to hear the tale…just as eager as a dime store novelist listening to a bunch of outlaws in the wild, wild west.
And he will turn these notes into the story that we know and love today…as soon as he escapes this dreadful Isle of the Mist.
