Storyline

In 1977, the film was purchased and colorized by Luigi Cozzi in a terrible way of a 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?

Trivia

The film is a re-edited Italian-language dubbed version of Godzilla featuring 80 minutes of footage from the original Godzilla (1954) and the US version Godzilla: King of the Monsters! (1956) plus 25 minutes of WWII newsreel footage and clips from other monster 1950's movies. The re-edited film was then colorized via a process called Spectorama 70 consisting of applying various colored gels to the black and white footage. The film also features a new music score composed by musician Vince Tempera (under the pseudonym Magnetic System). See more »
