Waiting for Gorgo (2009)
Waiting for Gorgo is a 2009 short comedy film directed by Benjamin Craig. It serves as an unofficial sequel to the 1961 giant monster film Gorgo.
Alexandra Collins investigates an agency known only as the DMOA for a Ministry of Defence audit. She finds a well-hidden office occupied by two elderly men named Archibald and Tunstall, who ask her if Gorgo is coming. They explain to her that the agency's name stands for the Department of Monsters and Oversized Animals, established after an attack on London some 40 years ago by a giant reptile. Unfortunately, it was whittled down over the decades by budget cuts, as no new monsters emerged. As proof, they show Alexandra photographs of Gorgo and his mother Ogra; to her shock, one matches the cover of a DVD her flatmate owns. They claim the film was a major part of the government’s cover-up. Just as she seems on the verge of convincing them that the DMOA is the result of a bureaucratic mix-up and Gorgo a creature of fiction, Tunstall walks over to a cabinet and removes an enormous tooth, asking Alexandra where the tooth came from if Gorgo isn't real.
