Shin Ultraman | Review
https://spotifyanchor-web.app.link/e/iYqrg724Qwb The latest reboot of a longstanding Japanese franchise (or at least, the latest one to get a wide American release) is Shin Ultraman, helmed by one of the co-directors of Shin Godzilla, Shinji Higuchi.

How ‘Frankenstein Conquers the World’ Confronts the Monstrous Legacy of Hiroshima & Nagasaki | Review
Frankenstein Conquers the World marks a departure from Honda's usual kaiju-fare of the mid '60s; however, it also marks a welcomed return to his horror aesthetic.

Shin Godzilla (2016)
Hollywood producers, take note: Shin Godzilla is how you can reboot a franchise in bold, ambitious, stylish ways, opting for true creative vitality instead of simply box-office profits. Put into production in late 2014 (the same year that the American Godzilla made almost $530 million worldwide, though it displayed precious little innovation while doing so), … Continue reading Shin Godzilla (2016)
Most horror-movie monsters are unleashed from somewhere deep within our collective id—the repressed fears which linger in “the dark, inaccessible part of our personality,” as Freud described it. We’re taught early in life that ghosts, vampires, and demons don’t really exist, but horror movies lure such terrors out into the open, agonizing the audience with … Continue reading Godzilla (1954)
