Movie Monster Tributes: Vinz Clortho, TERROR DOG!

“Okay, who brought the dog?” ~ Louis TullyVinz.jpg

Vinz Clortho, Keymaster of Gozer. What a monstrous demigod! He is a loyal minion who obeyed The Destructor, possessing Louis Tully in the movie  Ghostbusters.

He seems to be male, anyway, as he possessed a male host. He has noticeably longer horns than Zuul, the Gatekeeper, who is believed to be female. Vinz Clortho was worshipped by the Sumerians and Hittites in 6000 BC, alongside Zuul and their master.


Winston Zeddemore: Hey, wait a minute. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! Hold it! Now, are we actually gonna go before a federal judge, and tell him that some moldy Babylonian god is going to drop in on Central Park West, and start tearing up the city?
Dr. Egon Spengler: Sumerian, not Babylonian.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Yeah. Big difference.
Winston Zeddemore: No offense, guys, but I’ve gotta get my own lawyer.
