Monster Mash: Tribute To Ishiro Honda

Possibly the greatest publicity photo of all time.

If you’re in or around the Bay Area, you should definitely pit-stop at the fantastic Other Cinema for a night of kaiju monster madness courtesy of OTAKU publisher Patrick Macias and the expert August Ragone, who’ll be presenting media context for Toho’s eternal film estate of sci-fi creature destruction and their directorial maestro, Ishiro Honda. Then a wonderful showing of WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS (1966), my personal fave non-Gozilla monster epic. All this and sake too! You know the other Giants are going to win anyway…

  1. And the words get stuck in my throat… My absolute favorite Japanese monster movie.

    I’m surprised War of the Gargantuas hasn’t had a big Hollywood re-make-over. Lady Gaga could sing the song.

    Gargantuas don’t eat polyester. They’re too health-conscious.
