So I did a post about the anatomy of certain Japanese monsters earlier today and I must admit I got hooked. Whilst doing my “research” into Gamera I came across plenty of pictures of monsters from early Japanese horror/monster films. I just couldn’t stop looking for more, so I thought that seeing as they gave me so much pleasure you may as well have a look at them too.
So, I just trawled and trawled and trawled. I found websites dedicated to weird monster films, I found a Japanese site run by a nice fella that makes monster models. I also found a whole heap of Japanese monster related stuff that I just couldn’t keep to myself. It’s just so cool. End of story. And if you don’t enjoy looking at these pictures then there’s something insanely wrong with your brain bonce.
