    I think this is the best in the series because there were no children to be found in the movie;they weren't the focal point .. the fight scenes are okay - remember this was the practical effects era not CGI. I prefer practical effects as it has a special charm to the films. Gamera vs Barugon actually has a pretty good plot / story , well good enough for Gamera movies from this era ..

    Possibly my favorite John Carpenter film. Moody, suspenseful, gory - just a terrific film. This has lots of action, one of the more incredible creatures with just outrageous effects and a lot of jolts to keep you on your toes. Kurt Russell is great in this. Actually so is in entire cast..and the music by Ennio Morricone is creepy good as well.
    The effects by Rob Botin are just fantastic.

    Carpenter at his directorial best. A Great creepy classic. Sort of a good vs. evil story with religious overtones. Researchers find a cylinder with green gook in it. It sprays out onto one member and she starts to infect the whole team turning them into zombies. Add some yucky bugs crawling all over the place , Alice Cooper and street people attacking the cast as well, another great performance by Donald Pleasence and youve got yourself a great horror flick ! :)
