Daikaiju Mono (US release)

Postby klen7 » Thu Apr 26, 2018 11:44 am

Daikaiju Mono is getting a US Bluray release from Sentai/Kraken!

In Dai-Kaiju Mono, things aren't looking good in Japan. The weather is acting strangely, volcanoes that don't normally erupt are erupting, and… oh yes… the giant monster Mono is running amuck and gobbling up the human population. What a nuisance!

Fortunately, disgraced Doctor Totaro Saigo thinks he has the solution: a special formula that can be injected into a normal human, causing the injectee to grow into a colossus of Tokyo-skyscraper-stomping proportions! With any luck, that means the good doctor's lab assistant Nitto will be able to take on Mono, hand to claw, in "mano a Mono" combat! Yes, the plan is every bit as insane as it sounds, and the logic of the plot will be stretched as thin as the fabric of Nitto's ultra-stretchy briefs when the ultimate human vs. monster wrestling match erupts!


From the director of "Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit", the criminally underrated "Calamari Wrestler" and the somewhat infamous "Earth Defense Widow"

You know, I haven't given much attention to the low budget kaiju indie films released in the last decade plus - but I might just pick this up to support genre releases of this kind.

So, if I get this correctly, fans can now buy Kota Ibushi and Minoru Suzuki figures and instantly have two new giant monsters for their collections. Well played, movie...

I loathed Monster X Strikes Back so I don't think I'll be jumping on this.

I want to support domestic home video releases of these movies. I just don't want to see this movie.

I kinda got over that when we started to get more and more and more and MORE of them.

I'm not gonna buy EVERYTHING just to "support the genre" anymore. Not when I sit and stare at movies like Garuda on my shelf and wonder "Why?"
