    There's a family story about this movie: when my late grandmother saw the movie in the theater she was so scared of the Godzilla that she had to leave the theater.
    It's hard to imagine this simple fear nowadays. It was probably something like leaving the theater when the train on the silver screen came towards you. Today this simple fear is ruined by chainsaw massacres, paranormal activities etc.

    The original and the best - not the Americanized version. In a non-ironic, not camp way, a really good movie. Effective and poignant. 4 years 2 months ago

    honestly one of the best films period. Raymond Burrs version (and the bad sequels) just ruined its reputation 4 years 6 months ago
