Editor's NoteFrom the director of the original GODZILLA comes FRANKENSTEIN VS BARAGON (or as it's also known in cult-movie circles, FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD). In 1945, a human heart in a Japanese lab is exposed to the intense radiation from the atomic bomb, causing the heart to grow into a full body. The result is a wild child, complete with the iconic flat-top head that earns him the name "Frankenstein." The boy grows to giant proportions, and he is invincible against attacks from the authorities. But when a giant reptile wreaks havoc, only Frankenstein can match him in a fight. This sci-fi film from 1965 blends Japanese monster movies with the tradition of Mary Shelley's classic character.

You gotta love the beautiful Ms. Kumi Mizuno. Beside her, the movie is good, one of Toho's best. Add that with the features this DVD is packing. Both Japanese and American releases along with deleted scenes and commentary. A must have for all Toho and movie monster fans. This year has been a blessing for Toho fans with the rereleases of their movies on DVD in widescreen modes and with special features.
