Viewing Notes

Last film in my mini-GFest and perhaps one of my most favorite Godzilla films, mainly due to the ultra cool aliens from Planet X and the stunning SFX work by Eiji Tsuburaya (of Ultraman fame among many other films and shows).

I really want to make a 1/6 scale costume of the Planet X aliens; they’re the height of ‘60s space cool!
