Godzilla vs. Hedorah

( 2 )

Overview

Beyond a doubt the weirdest chapter in Toho's Godzilla saga, this eco-conscious entry pits the Big Green Guy against a living mass of industrial sludge dubbed "Hedora." Capable of splitting into numerous satellite monsters and secreting sulfuric acid, Hedora grows exponentially larger as it absorbs more pollution and merely divides again when Godzilla tries to attack it. After wiping out a disco with its toxic secretions (from the monster, not the music), Hedora goes airborne and attacks Mount Fuji, where blasts ...

Overview

Beyond a doubt the weirdest chapter in Toho's Godzilla saga, this eco-conscious entry pits the Big Green Guy against a living mass of industrial sludge dubbed "Hedora." Capable of splitting into numerous satellite monsters and secreting sulfuric acid, Hedora grows exponentially larger as it absorbs more pollution and merely divides again when Godzilla tries to attack it. After wiping out a disco with its toxic secretions (from the monster, not the music), Hedora goes airborne and attacks Mount Fuji, where blasts of electricity and Godzilla's atomic breath finally burn it to a crisp. Oddball stylistic touches, including split-screen animation and a hilarious pop ditty called "Save the Earth" (featuring the lyric "Find a solution to stop pollution..."), helped to condemn the film in the eyes of Godzilla purists everywhere.

    Godzilla Embraces His Insanity

    This movie is a strange, trippy, silly, strange, all out psychadelic freak out. Godzilla finally embraces his silliness here. People turn into fish, random cartoon scenes, amazing music, and a bizarre environmental theme. If you're looking for a silly, fun Godzilla film, this is it!

    One of my personal Godzilla favorites

    I remeber when I was young I would beg my mom everytime we went by Wegmans video department to let me rent this movie on VHS. I always liked it and always would. This is very weird in some ways and awesome in other ways.This is a Godzilla classic to me and maybe even for you.
