Godzilla vs Hedorah (1971) — Episode 25 — Decades of Horror 1970s

“There’s no place else to go and pretty soon we’ll all be dead, so forget it! Enjoy yourself! Let’s sing and dance while we can! Come on, blow your mind!” – the out-of-this-world 70’s tagline for the cult favorite Godzilla vs Hedorah still does not approach how unbelievably bizarre this entry into the Godzilla lexicon actually is. The Black Saint and Doc Rotten tackle another groovy horror film from the 1970s.

Decades of Horror 1970s
Episode 26 — Godzilla vs Hedora  (1971)

Horror aficionado and film maker Bill Mulligan return to co-host Decades of Horror to take a long, loving look at the wacky Godzilla vs the Smog Monster film from 1971. Thomas Mariani is on board to share his take of the film as well. Topics discussed tonight include but are not limited to “How does Godzilla manage to fly?”, “What is a Hedorah anyway?”, “Is that animation from Sesame Street?”, “Are those eggs, eyes or testicles?” and “Can you sing the song ‘Save the Earth’ in its entirety?” Not many films earn the “got to be seen to be believed” like Godzilla vs Hedorah does. Join The Black Saint, Doc Rotten, Bill and Thomas in the grooviest Godzilla story  committed to film.
