0304: Gamera Vs. Barugon

MST3k, Experiment #0304

The Great Monster Duel:  Gamera Vs. Barugon.

After a treacherous expedition to retrieve a giant opal, disaster strikes as the opal reveals itself to be an egg which spawns Barugon, demon dog from Hell! Armed with a deadly tongue and cold beams, Barugon wreaks havoc on Japan. Gamera comes to save the day.

A meteor released Gamera from the grasps of Z Plan... yes, Z Plan.  Three(3) guys hunt for a lost opal, and end up hatching an egg or something that holds Barugon, the giant dog-lizard with a horn... who shoots rainbows out of his mouth or head or something.  Is it any wonder I stopped paying attention?!  Anyways, Gamera comes back and saves Japan from the dangerous rainbows of Barugon in an epic battle the likes of which you'll wish you'd never seen.

One good thing about this movie, and possibly the ONLY good thing, is something I read on the MST3k Wiki site:  "Gamera vs. Barugon is the only Gamera movie that doesn’t feature annoying Japanese children with level 5 security clearance gadding about in tiny short pants. "  Oh thank god...  but why is this still the worst Gamera movie of all of them?!  Perhaps there's something to be said about the stupid kids named Kenny shouting joy for Gamera.  What am I saying?!  I must be mad.  Alright, that's it for this week.  I am going to go take a nap.


Favourite line:  "A piece of liver! This movie IS fascinating!"
