Storyline

In 1977, the film was purchased and colorized by Luigi Cozzi in a terrible way of an old negative print. When American reporter Steve Martin investigates a series of mysterious disasters off the coast of Japan, he comes face to face with an ancient creature so powerful and so terrifying, it can reduce Tokyo to a smoldering graveyard. Nuclear weapon testing resurrected this relic from the Jurassic age, and now it's rampaging across Japan. At night, Godzilla wades through Tokyo leaving death and destruction in his wake, disappearing into Tokyo Bay when his rage subsides. Conventional weapons are useless against him; but renowned scientist Dr. Serizawa has discovered a weapon that could destroy all life in the bay - including Godzilla. But which disaster is worse, Godzilla's fury, of the death of Tokyo Bay?

Godzilla (1977) is a monument to trash, is garbage in its true form, taking a masterpiece like the original 1954 one and vandalize it with flashing over the top colors, snuff imagery and a hideous sound design make the perfect doom spiral that might kill your soul and lobotomize you after the first 4 minutes
