Monster of the Day #287


  • The Rev.

    So will #288 be the flying version? I like that version, with its antisocial acid mist-spraying tendencies and UFO-type sound effect when it soars through the air.

    Over the years, I’d have to say it’s become one of the higher-ranked G-films on my personal list (and it started pretty high up the first time I saw it, too). It’s been too long since I’ve seen this. Time to dig through my old tapes and find it.

    This guy is nice example of a monster that manages to be both imaginative in design and yet simple enough to be iconic.

    The eyes have it. No, seriously those nasty peepers are part of the cool factor for Hedora.

    That’s true of all kaiju, though. When talks off the hook, give ’em the look.

    He kind of reminds me of one of those blobby beasties the were frequently featured on the old Outer Limits. I wonder if that show influenced Hedorah’s design.

    The MoTD is inspiring so many good memories this week that I have elected to let the shark go with a warning slap.
