Monster X Strikes American DVD

I've been anxiously following the progress of Minoru Kawasaki's revival of The X From Outer Space mon-star Guilala entitled Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit. Now the geopolitical giant Japanese monster comedy is set to attack American shores on June 30th.

The X From Outer Space Needs a Job?

Though not the return to form for Guilala Foy was so excited about here, the great X From Outer Space has resurfaced here in the States ... in a commercial?

Can Takeshi Beat Guilala?

A new and rather unexpected wrinkle has been added to the mix of Calamari Wrestler director Minoru Kawasaki's low-tech giant monster romp Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit.

The Return of the X From Outer Space

If you've never seen the 1967 Japanese giant monster movie The X From Outer Space, then you've missed out on one of the most oddball daikaiju movies of all time. That oddball factor is due in tremendous part to its title monster, Guilala (pronounced Goo-La-La), being one of the goofiest looking movie monsters to ever grace the silver screen. If you've never heard of Guilala, well, just take a good look at it. Body wise, it looks like a cross between a chicken, a dinosaur, and The Michelin Man.
