Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit
Lots of monsters in this week's DVD round-up, but for my money, the pick of the litter has to be Golden Age Ghost Tales with the likes of Boris Karloff, David Niven, and Ronald Reagan starring in seven spine-tingling half-hour ghost stories selected from several top anthology TV series from 1951-1962.
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.
Funny how Guilala went from being a giant Japanese monster that only appeared in a lone movie that's mostly unknown to today's audiences yet nearly 40-years later The X From Outer Space has not only returned in a new movie, he's even become a spokesmonster for a jobs' website.
It was just a few days ago that I finished a story commenting that I wished they'd hurry up and get a new trailer out there for Minoru The Calamari Wrestler Kawasaki's remake/sequel/parody/whatever of The X From Outer Space. And they'd need to hurry too since The Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit opens in Japanese theaters on July 27th.
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.
