To celebrate the impending release of Godzilla vs Kong, we’re transforming into “Mecha-DREAD-Zilla” for March, bringing you a #MonthOfDread teeming with giant monsters, cryptids, aliens, and robots! It all culminates with the release of Godzilla vs Kong on March 31st!
Legends collide in Godzilla vs. Kong as these mythic adversaries meet in a spectacular battle for the ages, with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe. The epic clash between the two titans—instigated by unseen forces—is only the beginning of the mystery that lies deep within the core of the Earth.
“Where are all the Toho movies?” you might be asking yourself. Toho is the undenyable King of monster moviemaking with so many awesome offerings in their stable, they can be (and most likely will be) the subject of their own dedicated #MonthOfDread.
Ask yourself: Are you a horror fan who lives every day like it’s Halloween? Do you have the gumption and the stamina to consume a new horror movie every day for an entire year? If so, feast your eyes on March’s 31-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2021 on Social Media!
Did your favorite horror movie featuring a giant monster (or robot) make the list? Are you excited to see Godzilla vs Kong beginning March 31st? Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram! You can also carry on the convo with me personally on Twitter @josh_millican.
