What the Fuck is Going On: This is a surprisingly gory little movie made in the wake of Jaws that is really, REALLY not a good movie for fans of large monsters or logic. Apparently, all it takes is a category five earthquake to awaken the monsters living inside Mt. Fuji. I wish. Sadly, the monsters are horribly done and the whole premise is thinner than Robert John Burke. Still, there’s a tiny bit of sexy stuff, a lot of blood for a film like this, and plenty o’ silly things to enjoy while having drinks/opium with the boys and the stiffest flying creature this side of Yor: The Hunter from the Future. I cannot recommend this horrible piece of shit enough.
