Monster Roll

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

Oh my God. Oh my God. Oh my GOD. WATCH THIS NOW! This is amazing:  a short proof-of-concept film about sushi chefs taking on marine-themed kaiju (and some that look an awful lot like the ohmu from Nausicaa of the Valley of Winds). A giant octopus, a giant anglerfish, and..THE BIG KNIFE. These guys are […]


Netflix Instant Watch goes kaiju-crazy!

Written by Musashi on . Posted in Film

Netflix added a handful of classic kaiju-eiga to it’s Instant Watch service, including Terror of Mechagodzilla, Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster, Rodan, and one of my all-time favorites – War of the Gargantuas! The latter is a peripheral part of the Godzilla canon, being a pseudo-sequel to Frankenstein Conquers the World (aka Frankenstein vs. Baragon) […]

Legendary Pictures Godzilla won’t be out until 2012, but so far this looks pretty good – although I suspect this version of Godzilla will be CGI, […]

Songs about Kaiju

This is one of those posts that emerges from noodling around on YouTube when I should be working. I watched the awesome rock-doc ANVIL: THE STORY OF ANVIL at a friend’s house over Christmas (do check it it out if you get a chance – it’s amazing…) and have been adding Anvil videos to my […]

Kaiju Get Down With Their Bad Selves

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in WTF

Pretty much everyone who has seen Michael Jackson’s Thriller video wants to learn the dance. I tried one time – a couple days later, after my spine had knitted itself back together, I decided the Thriller dance was beyond my skills. Now even kaihu are getting into it, in honor of the new Ultraman movie, […]


Kaiju Do America

Written by AnaKhouri on . Posted in Uncategorized

Thank God for Homeland Security. They protect us helpless Americans from foaming, raging, murderous terrorists. And also from giant monsters. Reason Article I’ve always wondered if the government actually has some sort of protocol for kaiju attacks. They should; I mean, you never know. Me and Shapiro Keats have a plan for monster attacks. Also […]
