Gorgo is an attempt to make a Japanese-style "giant reptile" flick in an English setting. The story begins when underwater volcanic activity in the Irish Sea brings forth a 65-foot monster called Gorgo. Enterprising Joe (Bill Travers) and Sam (William Sylvester) capture the beast and transport it to London, where Gorgo is put on display as a seaside carnival attraction. This proves to be a major mistake when Gorgo's even larger mother lumbers to the surface in search of her cute li'l baby. In

Women are absent from 'Gorgo' because the title beast proves to be the biggest mother of them all, literally. The entire movie is constructed around a feminine presence that is destructive and wrathful but also righteous.
Okay giant monster flick
