Son of Godzilla (1967)

The countdown to the most anticipated monster movie in some time in underway and the release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters is soon to be in theaters.  In anticipation, we at 812review will bring you reviews of our favorite monster movies.  Make sure and let us know if you agree with our picks and give us your opinions on the movies we review in the comments section below.

Our first movie is Son of Godzilla.  We find a group of scientists who are doing experiments on a remote island to control the weather when Godzilla shows up.  While on the island they find several massively large insects.  The Preying Mantis (Kamakaras), digs up an egg that belongs to Godzilla and hatches the Son of Godzilla (Minilla).  Near the end of the movie Minilla finds himself in the fight for his life against a Giant Spider (Kumoga), but before all hope is lost Godzilla shows up and saves the day.

Growing up this movie is one many of us have seen and appreciate as part of the Godzilla fandom.  The interaction between Godzilla and Minilla is fantastic, and if you enjoy the campy Godzilla movies of the 60’s, this is perfect for your collection.  no doubt there are many fun Godzilla movies, but this is one of the best and definitely recommended for view before going to see the new Godzilla King of the Monsters on May 30th.
