In this sweaty, foam latex covered installment of Trailer Trash, our ids work out some nuclear radiation fears in the Japanese national fever dream of the Giant Monster wrecking the city genre. We've got all the biggies here; King Ghidorah, Mothra, Rodan, and the biggest of them all, Godzilla. Of the 63 Showa/Heisei monster films, Godzilla starred in 59 on them. The bulk of the series. Not exactly a lightweight.
Stomping out of your nightmares and into the streets, here we present:Bulgasari aka "Pulgasari" (1985)
Godzilla, King of the Monsters! (1956)
Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster (1964)Mothra (1961)

Hey! Watch out for the Network Awesome movie of the week: "Pulgasari" in the lineup, or in the archives! North Korean dictator Kin Jong-il made this Godzilla clone in the 80's by kidnapping a director and getting the Godzilla guys to do the special effects. 85 Min. Subtitled.
