Trivia

Too hilarious for words!!!
22 February 1999 | by (On Monster Island) – See all my reviews

Were they (moviemakers of this cheese flick) serious when they make this Korean/American co-pro movie? Let's see, army stock footage from "Yongary" and other Korean Kaiju films(?),Toy boats and a rubber shark and many more larks are seen in this kaiju eiga. I was laughing so hard that I finally ran out of breath when the movie was over!
