Pulgasari is a North Korean feature film produced in 1985, a giant-monster film similar to the Japanese Godzilla series. It was produced by South Korean director Shin Sang-ok, who had been kidnapped in 1978 by North Korean intelligence on the orders of Kim Jong-il.
You read that right. That's not the plot of the movie, IT"S REAL LIFE. The director WAS KIDNAPPED and brought to North Korea and was forced to make this film by dictator Kim Jong-il, who also produced the picture.
Teruyoshi Nakano and the staff from Japan's Toho studios, the creators of Godzilla, participated in creating the film'sspecial effects. Kenpachiro Satsuma – the stunt performer who played Godzilla from 1984 to 1995 – portrayed Pulgasari, and when the Jeff Bridges/Jessica Lange Godzilla remake was released in Japan in 1998, Satsuma was quoted as saying he preferred Pulgasari to the American Godzilla.
The film is about a doll made of rice by a prisoner, which on coming into contact with blood, grows to become a giant metal-eating monster.
