Kraken Releasing is offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win all three of their new Godzilla Blu-rays!
EBIRAH: HORROR OF THE DEEP (ゴジラ・エビラ・モスラ 南海の大決闘, Gojira Ebira Mosura Nankai no Daikettoo, 1966) was originally released in the U.S. in 1968 under the title GODZILLA VS THE SEA MONSTER. Pairing Godzilla and another of Toho’s most popular kaiju, the giant moth Mothra, against a wide variety of adversaries, including the titular sea monster, giant birds and a mysterious terrorist organization, the wet and wild widescreen spectacular was directed by Jun Fukuda.
GODZILLA VS HEDORAH (ゴジラ対ヘドラ, Gojira Tai Hedora, 1971), released theatrically in the U.S in 1972 as GODZILLA VS THE SMOG MONSTER, pits Godzilla against the forces of pollution in the form of a constantly mutating, acid-spewing behemoth from outer space. With eye-popping 1970’s “mod” costumes, hairstyles and psychedelic visuals that include conventional cel animation alongside the special effects by Teruyoshi Nakano, GODZILLA VS HEDORAH director Yoshimitsu Banno’s ecologically focused take on the world’s greatest monster is easily one of the most unique films in the series and required viewing for any giant monster fan or cult film enthusiast.
GODZILLA VS GIGAN (地球攻撃命令 ゴジラ対ガイガン, Chikyuu Kogeki Meirei Gojira Tai Gaigan, 1972) ups the giant monster ante once again with a series of tag team battles featuring four classic kaiju. Released theatrically in the United States in 1977 as GODZILLA ON MONSTER ISLAND and again directed by Jun Fukuda with special effects by Teruyoshi Nakano, the film unites Godzilla and spiny ally Anguirus against two of the series’ most popular opponents: the three headed monster King Ghidorah and the new alien cyborg Gigan.
EBIRAH: HORROR OF THE DEEP, GODZILLA VS HEDORAH and GODZILLA VS GIGAN will be available on Blu-ray (SRP $14.98 each) and DVD (SRP $9.98 each) from retailers on May 6th, but here is your chance to win the Blu-ray editions for free!
