During WWII, a human heart taken from a certain lab in Europe (Dr. Frankenstein's) is kept in a Japanese lab, when it gets exposed to the radiation of the bombing of Hiroshima. The heart grows in size, mutates and sprouts appendages, and eventually grows into a complete body and escapes. Later, a feral boy with a certain physical deformity (a large head with a flat top) is captured by scientists who refer to the boy as Frankenstein. The creature grows to the height of 20 feet, escapes again, fights police and army, and is practically indestructible. Later, a reptilian monster goes on a rampage. Eventually the Frankenstein creature and the reptile face off in a terrible battle.Written by

In the mid 1980s, the distribution of this film was taken over by U.P.A. who transferred the film to tape for television syndication. They reshot the opening credits (on tape), trying to duplicate the look of the original title sequence. Apparently they mistimed the footage causing the sound in the first reel to be at lease a full second out of sync. Also, due to sloppy handing of the changeovers, there is slight footage missing at each changeover point causing the running time to be reduced to 86 minutes. This may be one of the worst video transfers ever. By mid-2003, there has been no sign that any attempt has been made to correct the problems and this print remains in distribution. See more »
Cheezy, but What's so wrong with Cheeze every once in a while?
I have seen this movie before and right away you know that it is a large man rampaging through a miniature city. But....who says the imagination has to florish on common every day stuff. I thought it was really funny and compared the flik to Attack of the 50 foot woman. It also borrowed some orchestration chords from my all time favorite child hood monster flik WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS. Every once in a while we all feel the need to see something cheezy and not common. This movie is that type of movie. We know it is not real and just a dream, but why knock it? I wish it would come to DVD. I am a collector of Cheezy horror movies from the 50's, 60's and other eras. Die hard Gozilla fans will get a kick out of this movie. I personally thought War of the Gargantuas really represented what a real hideous beast should look like. If the Studios in Japan ever read this comment, please put War of the Gargantuas on DVD!!!!
