Product Overview

Godzilla is back, and this time he's not alone! While scouting the seas for schools of fish, young pilots Tsukioka and Kobayashi encounter Godzilla and the spiny monster Anguirus in heated battle on a small Japanese island. The two beasts tumble into the ocean and soon resurface in Osaka, laying waste to the city in a fight to the death. As the threat of destruction mounts, the two heroes muster their courage for the final showdown with Godzilla.

Classic Media presents Godzilla Raids Again (1955), the first of many Godzilla sequels, in the original Japanese-language version with English subtitles. Also included is the heavily re-edited American version, in which Godzilla was re-named "Gigantis," and featuring the voice of Star Trek's George Takei!

ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review It's the Attack of the Three-Named Giant Prehistoric Lizard as Godzilla Raids Again in this sequel to one of the best monster movies of all time. You'll find Japanese actors saying the name "Gojira" while the word "Godzilla" appears in the subtitles in the original version...Today, the heavily reworked versions of the Japanese Gojira and its sequel wouldn't fly with savvy audiences. They wouldn't have to, since Toho is undoubtedly well aware of the global audience. Toho's special edition of Godzilla Raids Again is a look back to a time when American audiences didn't have a world of choices they could pop into their DVD players and distributors weren't yet sure how to handle unusual properties like Godzilla. It's not just a movie, it's a time capsule.
