If “The Day The Earth Stood Still” was intended to showcase mankind’s preconceived idea that all things that are not immediately understood are inherently evil then “Twenty Million Miles to Earth” was destined to drive the point home. Very rarely has there been a more tragic figure portrayed on film as the Ymir. (Named for the first of the giants in Norse mythology) The poor creature is kidnapped from its native planet of Venus, attacked by a dog, attacked...

We've already seen multiple cities laid to waste in blockbusters this summer, and now even more are in peril thanks to Guillermo del Toro's monster mash Pacific Rim. But that movie inherited its appetite for destruction from the ultimate source of unplanned urban renovation: the giant-beasties kaiju films of Japanese cinema, a genre best known for the movie that started it all, Godzilla (1954, 1 hr., 38 mins., Not Rated). Born out of a combination of the nation's postatomic fears...

As many of you may or may not know collecting classic movie posters, lobby cards and photographs is a real passion of mine. I often times spend hours rummaging through thrift stores, antique malls, flea markets and yard sales looking for authentic movie related items. I have put together quite a collection and one day I hope to get everything framed and up on my walls.That being said, I woke up this morning with monster movie posters on my mind so I...

"I can't help thinking that somewhere in the universe there has to be something better than man. Has to be." - George Taylor In 1966 Franklin J. Schaffner had purchased the rights to what he thought would make excellent movie. Pierre Boulle's novel "La Planete des singes." He peddled the idea to almost every studio in Hollywood, but nobody wanted anything to do with his "Monkey Planet." Studio executives thought the idea of talking apes would be laughed at. A...

In 1818 a young aristocrat named Mary Shelly was inspired by a summers night of ghost story readings by a group of friends, to write what may be the greatest horror story in history. Her short story, entitled “Frankenstein”, about a scientist named Victor Frankenstein and his attempts to generate new life from dead tissue has inspired novels, plays, TV series and countless movie adaptations. Her monster, however, was a far different creature than the famous interpretation by Boris Karloff in the 1931...

What makes Mighty Peking Man such a trashy delight? It's not just the absurdly obvious special effects and atrocious dubbing--those are the easy laughs--it's the over-the-top romantic and dramatic moments that really push this movie into camp heaven. When a gigantic ape-man destroys a village in a remote jungle, a fiendish promoter decides to capture this prehistoric creature and put him on display. He hires Johnny (Danny Lee, who resembles current Canto-pop superstar Andy Lau), a heartbroken adventurer, to hunt Peking...

In 1997 Banpresto approached Go Nagai about creating an advanced version of his famous mecha, Great Mazinger, for the later stages of their Super Robot Wars video game. The design Nagai came up with, Mazinkaiser, is arguably the most powerful mecha ever created. The robot proved to be so popular that it was eventually added to the Mazinger canon (storyline). In 1999 a seven episode OVA (Original Video Animation) anime series was produced to tell the origin of the mecha. Many American fans...
