A giant monster that emits a destructive ray from its back attacks Japan and takes on Gamera.

While I am not terribly familiar with the Gamera series, or giant monsters in general, this one was mildly amusing and somewhat confusing. I thought Barugon was a good monster, and his frozen breath was pretty cool. But then the rainbow beam... that was more than a little strange, and I presume it was only in the film to show off their new color cameras.

Different versions of this film probably exist, but the one I saw had ten minutes or less of Gamera. I thought for a film called "Gamera vs. Barugon" there would be a lot more of the title creature, but I guess not.
