For the first time, the American International Pictures (AIP) dub of the movie translated its theme song, "Bring Back Nature". The English song, retitled "Save the Earth", was performed by then-upcoming singer Adryan Russ. Russ claims that for a long time she had considered her involvement with a Godzilla movie an embarrassments, but upon learning of the movie's cult status, she completely changed her mind. The other official English dubbing track for the film, produced by Toho, keeps the song in Japanese. See more »

This is one trippy psychedelic freakout of a movie. The niteclub scene alone is worth the price of admission. I first saw this movie on my tenth birthday and it has lost none of its charm with time. Bad trips, people reduced to skeletons by acid gas, kittens nearly devoured and covered in slime, babies sinking into mudpits....this is not your average kaiju eiga!
