Mysterious Bones

Postby jrichreturns » Fri Nov 13, 2015 5:33 am

From Gvs Mothra 1964, the moving turtle skeleton. What about it? So I went to Japan and got to go to CAST (the miniature making company) and they told me why the skeleton moved. Indeed, it wasn't alive but it's a refernce to a scene in an Italian movie called, "A Dog's life" that has a moving turtle skeleton.

That turtle in Mothra vs. Godzilla also blinks.

Ok, wow. I just looked up this movie
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057318/

The film contains a large number of documented atrocities to nature and animals including turtles on the radioactive contaminated Bikini atoll beaches which are dead or dying which shows the continued fallout from the nuclear tests.

Very fascinating find.

Yeah, pretty dark. It's a homage to that film.
