Genre: Sci-Fi Horror
Director: Ishirô Honda (The H-Man)
Starring: Akira Takarada, Momoko Kôchi, Akihiko Hirata, Takashi Shimura, Fuyuki MurakamiIn Brief: Well, the big boy is back -- proving that you can't keep the mightiest of all monsters down. It's only been about three months since our pal Gojira -- or Godzilla as he came to be known over here -- was in town to stomp and blast his way through Tokyo. World Cinema, realizes you can't have enough kaiju — especially in this first one, here seen in its original Japanese version. There were countless sequels and imitations, but no subsequent film got anywhere near the darkly grim tone of this one.
Genre: Sci-Fi Horror

Starring: Akira Takarada, Momoko Kôchi, Akihiko Hirata, Takashi Shimura, Fuyuki MurakamiIn Brief: The Japanese giant monster — or kaiju — movie starts here, and nothing that came in the wake of Gojira (Godzilla) ever got anywhere near this dark, somber and downright grim film. Oh, sure, it has the same dumb special effects and the man-in-the-rubber-suit monster (helped by keeping the action dark), but there's no silliness here. The stakes feel genuinely high, the characters are complex and the tone is anything but the kind of "kiddie fare" the series came to be. A must-see of its kind.
