Yongary: Monster From the Deep (1967)

A giant monster is terrorizing an Asian country, smashing buildings and spitting fire. Your mind instantly goes to Godzilla, but that's not who we are talking about today. No, today's movie is title Yongary: Monster From the Deep. And it's not even from Japan, it's a giant monster movie out of South Korea.

Synopsis: When a atom bomb is tested in the Middle East, it awakens a terrible monster which travels underground causing massive Earthquakes. When the monster surfaces he is right in the middle of South Korea and begins to reek havoc. 

This movie is actually pretty good. Just as good as any Godzilla movie. You're not expecting much coming in, but this movie is full of surprises. In fact the plot holds together a little better then some of it's Japanese counterparts. Anyway I'd suggest this movie to anyone that's a fan of the Kaiju genre and hasn't seen this film.

Yongary: Monster From the Deep gets a 4 out 5 on the Cheese-O-Meter.

Until next time, see you on the front line.
