1980′s

Today is a very special day as monster movie fans the world over wish a very happy birthday to the mightiest monster of them all – Godzilla! The very first Godzilla movie, Gojira, was released in Japan on November 3rd 1954 to huge success. It was then dubbed into English, new footage shot featuring Raymond Burr and released in America as Godzilla, King of the Monsters in 1956 to even greater success. Godzilla became a monster movie franchise spawning 27 sequels (and a best-forgotten American remake in 1998) and is set to be relaunched into cinemas with a brand new rebooted version in 2014, directed by Gareth Edwards. Take a look at our Godzilla filmography below, listing all Toho movies starring everyones favourite giant radioactive lizard!

GODZILLA MOVIES 1954-2004

If you’re a fan of classic horror films from the thirties right through to the eighties you are truly going to love this amazing short film by special effects supremo Greg Nicotero. The United Monster Talent Agency(2010) is a loving homage to the classic monsters of Universal Pictures, RKO , George Romero and beyond as it takes a comedic look at the various creature features throughout the decades. Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Wolfman, Them!, The Creature From The Black Lagoon and even George A Romero’s Dawn Of The Dead are all referenced in this excellent production.

Nicotero, alongside Robert Kurtzman and Howard Berger  founded the KNB Effects Group, a special effects studio which has worked on many famous fear and fantasy flicks over the years. He was heavily influenced by the old monster movies which aired on late-night local television as he was growing up which led to him following a career in special effects and creature design.

So now put your feet up, relax and enjoy The United Monster Talent Agency….
