Up from the depths of 'Prehistoric History'* rise Ash, Sol, Paul and Chris who prepare to do battle with a legend of British cinematic history... Gorgo! This 1961 classic was at least 3 years in the making. Mainly because it ran out of money. It's got minimal character development, no named female characters, and an Irish orphan that really doesn't deserve to survive the film. Yet, for some reason, we're able to talk about it for over an hour. What is its mysterious allure? Is it connected to Xulud? And how many times can the same building be destroyed without the audience getting suspicious? These questions may (or may not) be answered...
