This documentary aired when Roger Corman hosted his `Phantom Eye' shorts in 1999 during Halloween. Out of nowhere this documentary came up and it kicked butt. All my B-Movie favorites were there from King Kong, Rhedosaurs, the Black Scorpion, the Tarantula, Gwangi, the Ymir, the 5 Armed Octopus in `IT came from Beneath the Sea,' and my most admired monster, the King of the Monsters himself.GODZILLA!!!! This show documented the works of stop motion specialists Ray Harryhausen and Willis O' Brien to suitmation expert Eiji Tsuburya, who not only did Godzilla, but the giant spandex hero, Ultraman. They also gave a good lesson on the history of `Monster on the Loose' movies from the 50s and its affect on today's standards. This is definitely something I want to keep on video. Unfortunately, you can only see it on AMC from time to time. However, the next time it shows on AMC, record it, you won't be disappointed.
Overall Grade: A+
PS: I only wish AMC would turn this into a series.
