A Film By Takao Okawara
Japan, 1995
Japanese w. English Subtitles

“The film has a halcyon quality. It’s great.”

Enjoy very 1990s special effects in this Kaiju mega-movie. A burning Godzilla, on the verge of meltdown, emerges to lay siege to Hong Kong. At the same time horrifying new organisms are discovered in Japan. These crustacean-like beings are seemingly born of the Oxygen Destroyer, the weapon that killed the original Godzilla.
