Gojira Tai Hedorâ - Riichiro Manabe - Gara Takatori - Honey Knights and the Moon Drops - "Godzilla Vs. The Smog Monster" (1972)

Hell, we just couldn't wait any longer!!!

If this doesn't look like Halloween, I'll eat Hedorah's shorts!

We've got a whole new slew of ever so obscure titles in the can for you, and this Halloween Countdown 2008 provides us a with a great opportunity to post something about one of our most favorite movies, even tho it's from the 70's!!

So, without further delay, let's just kick off this next round a day early, with some music to whet the tastes of even the most hardcore monster aficionados!!!

"Gojira Tai Hedorâ" has got it all! It's a classic romp, and an opus adventure that has some of the furthest-out rockin' music you'll ever hear, a message, and monsters!!!

So before the end of the world, or at least until All Saint's Day gets here, you've still got time to find yourself a copy of this film, ingest some forbidden substance, break out your old fish head mask, and prepare yourself to party!!

Here is what we like to call the ultimate "Godzilla Vs. Hedorah Jam!"

I could go on forever and a day about this film, and there's about 1000 screen captures I'd like to show you, but I've still got some partying to do myself.

Tomorrow night Rodan gets us started again, and will take us back to the 50's where we belong, with the Eugène Lourié classic "The Colossus of New York!" Stay tuned!!

I saw this at a kiddie matinee at the time of its release -- then saw a terribly serious version of this on the Sci Fi Channel. The Americanized version of the lyrics heard at the beginning -- "Save the Earth!" --sound just like "God is dead!" in Japanese!

Awesome Godzilla Vs. Hedorah Jam! It made me dig out the whole movie soundtrack from my pile 'o Godzilla junk and listen to it today.

Really cool you chose my countdown list to link to, but I updated it last night and made a new post so if you can change the link to here it would be more up to date :)
