War of the Gargantuas is mouthful of a movie. It’s actually the sequel to Frankenstein Conquers the World and was released in Japan as Frankenstein’s Monsters: Sanda Versus Gaira. Well any ways, two creatures are extracted from the cells of a giant Frankenstein creature and become ginormous superfreaks themselves. They end up slapping the bejeezus out of each other while destroying Japan. A scene where one of the big freaks plucks a nightclub singer out of a window spawned a song by the musical group DEVO called “The Words Get Stuck in My Throat”, from a song in the movie.

Russ Tamblyn (West Side Story, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), 佐原健二 Sahara Kenji (Rodan, Godzilla's Revenge), and
水野久美 Mizonu Kumi (Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, Matango).

Run Like Hell is an old futuristic film set in the world of 2008. In this whacked-out version of what may be, war has ripped civilization to shreds and people are having babies all over the place. They blame the sexy single ladies for this and imprison them. This prison world is run by a crazy warden played by the late, great Robert Z'Dar (Samurai Cop, Maniac Cop) and the pretty ladies don’t like it. Time to bust out of here and...
