The Legend of the Dinosaurs

(Kyôryû kaichô no densetsu)


A curious geologist and his female photographer explore a remote area near Mt. Fuji. Legend has it that dinosaurs once roamed the area and there are even reports that some large lizards remain. The pair poke around hoping to find something that will bring them wealth. Changes in the weather awaken a plesiosaur in the nearby lake who eats anyone that enter its waters. Meanwhile, a pterosaur is about to hatch high in a mountain ice cave. The explorers get way more than they bargain for when these two prehistoric giants clash in an inevitable battle worthy of their legend.
