A samurai lord of a once peaceful village was murdered by one of his own men. The traitor then claims the throne, forcing the lord's two small children to flee into the woods, where they conceal themselves near the huge stone statue of Daimajin, the god of their village. After 10 years, the new samurai lord was proven to be very brutal and merciless towards the villagers, showing off his authority to no limits. Therefore, the villagers pray for Daimajin to awaken and to use his powers and spirit to save them from the treachery.Written by
Surprisingly good Japanese monster movie. Evil warlord enslaves townspeople until one prays to the mysterious unfinished stone statue on a mountain. The statues comes to life and goes on a rampage. The special effects are much better then what you may be used to from Japanese monster movies of the sixties.
