Monster of the Day #1285


Now we’re talking. This is clearly the giant octopus from King Kong vs. Godzilla. Well, octopi, since we also get live octopus footage that I assume was from that same film. Still, you can’t go wrong warming Ken’s heart with an old-school giant octopus.

That last shot is typical of the show’s damn fine process shots.

    It really says something about Ultra Q that a “mere” giant octopus feels downright mundane for them.

    If the JSDF can kill it, It ain’t that special.

    BTW; they used five real octopuses to film (I believe) the scene in King kong Vs. Godzilla. They let four return to the sea…and ate the fifth.
    Must have been the best actor in the bunch…oh well, that’s show biz.

    At least the octopus tasted stardom, before the crew tasted him.
