Godzilla and Ray Harryhausen! We've got dudes in rubber suits AND stop-motion animation going on. We're taking a break from the trippy Euro art films we've been featuring on OMFYS lately and going back to basics with some goddamned MONSTER MOVIES! First up, we have 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH (1957) from special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen. Thrill to a giant space dinosaur from Venus rampaging through Rome and fighting an elephant! And chill through expository scenes of military men in offices that sent Cory and Philena pushing the forward button. SPOILER ALERT: think Sativa for this one. And then we reassess the kaiju batshit craziness of ALL MONSTERS ATTACK (1969) aka GODZILLA'S REVENGE, a tender tale of a young boy bullied by neighborhood kids so hard that he escapes to Monster Island where he pals around with Godzilla's nonbinary child Manilla (aka Minya) and learns to fight his own battles from the big man himself, Godzilla! All this plus giant mantids, spiders, lobsters and a new red-headed monster called Gabera. Conventional wisdom calls this the worst Godzilla movie but OMFYS is here to say, "no way!" It's a psychedelic masterpiece (and a little bit of an art film, so we can't really escape). Enjoy!
