Gamera At The Expo, 3 May 2014
Author: AaronCapenBanner from North America

Sixth Gamera film sees the big guy coming to Japan's defense again after an ancient statue is moved to make way for the "Expo '70" celebrations, which unleashes another gigantic monster that attacks Japan. It can fire quills that disable and kill, and also uses its tail to infect Gamera with its parasitic offspring, forces its human friends(including children as usual) to launch a mini-sub into its body in a last-ditch attempt to revive him, and defeat this monster Jiger. A bit better than the past two entries, this is still mostly poor, with a "Fantastic Voyage" inspired subplot inserted into the otherwise uninspired story.
