#Driveinmob Presents KaiJuly! Daimajin and Return of Daimajin!

8:00 pm EST

Daimajin

(aka Majin, Monster of Terror )

A wonderful entry into the giant monster genre from Daiei Studios! A period kaiju drama from 1966 concerning a coup d’état of a kindly feudal boss by his vile chamberlain, the misery that ensues for a lot of people, and a giant stone statue of a vengeful god that gets really angry about it. Beautifully shot, with really impressive special effects and a brilliant score by Akira Ifukube. A blend of giant monster and samurai genres, it’s kind of like a colorful Sansho the Baliff with a giant warlord-stomping kaiju to cheer about! Cinema!

9:45 pm EST

Return of Daimajin

They filmed the three Daimajin film at once and released them months apart – this second film follows the formula of the first with some new settings and another set of reprehensible warlords that need stomping. Great stuff!

#Driveinmob Presents KaiJuly! Frankenstein Conquers the World and War of the Gargantuas!

Our 3rd annual KAIJULY month-long celebration of all things kaiju continues!frank_love

8:00 pm EST

Frankenstein Conquers the World

(Frankenstein versus Subterranean Monster Baragonフランケンシュタイン対地底怪獣バラゴン)

Frankenstein’s heart is transported from Germany to Hiroshima during WWII and ends up irradiated by the atomic blast! Years later, a strange feral boy appears - and a subterranean monster called Baragon starts rampaging! Ishirō Honda directed this Kaiju classic, and fan favorite Nick Adams joins kaiju movie regulars like Kumi Mizuno, Tadao Takashima and Takashi Shimura. Co-produced by Henry G. Saperstein’s UPA studio.

9:45 pm EST

War of the Gargantuas

(Frankenstein’s Monsters: Sanda versus Gaira – フランケンシュタインの怪獣 サンダ対ガイラ)

This was the very first film that we tweeted along to with the #driveinmob hashtag three years ago! Ishirō Honda again heads up this direct sequel to Frankenstein Conquers the World, although the American dub does not make any reference to the earlier film and eliminates the Frankenstein references altogether. Created from the undying cells of the monster from the first film, two giant monsters, Sanda and Gaira, battle it out when one of them develops a taste for humans! Russ Tamblin and Kumi Mizuno run for their lives and Kipp Hamilton almost gets stuck in Gaira’s throat! A classic!
