GIGANTIS, THE FIRE MONSTER (1959)

Two warring dinosaurs, one of whom looks suspiciously like Godzilla, destroy the city of Osaka, leaving the citizens of Japan wondering why giant monsters hate their cities so much. 

 

This butchered Amercian version of GODZILLA RAIDS AGAIN (1955), Toho’s first sequel to GOJIRA (1954), is a heavily edited mess that has the balls to change the Big G’s name to Gigantis. Luckily for Kaiju fans, the original version is available on DVD.  Anguirus, Godzilla’s first ever battle opponent, would go on to become a regular series player during the films of the 1970s.
