In 1999 all the human beings will be dead. We have only 25 years of great fear remaining. This motion picture is the incredible fruit of the most advanced scientific mind and limitless imagination. [English translation of Japanese tagline.] See more »
During the film's initial release, scenes (including the notorious climactic mutant scene and the cannibal attack in New Huinea) received hard criticism, so Toho ended up selling a cut version to overseas markets. The film showed up once on Japanese TV in early 1980 before being pulled from circulation altogether. Toho also tried to release the film to VHS and laserdisc in the late 1980s, but the release was canceled (although an employee released a print to the black market.) The film is not banned, as is often reported - Toho simply appears to be afraid of releasing it in Japan because of the offensive nature of several key scenes. Apparently the film is for sale to U.S. distributors for DVD release. It seems unlikely that a U.S. DVD, if produced, will include the original 114 minute Japanese cut. See more »
