An alleged South Korean monster-horror film from 1973 that is said to have borrowed plot elements from both Godzilla vs. Hedorah (1971) and Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973). The supposed story concerns a trio of creatures mutated by industrial pollution who proceed to attack a group of hippies gathered on Cheju Island.
