With the release of the latest Godzilla film, maybe you’re new to the whole Kaiju sub-genre and want to learn more about it. I mean, it’s only been going on for well over 50 years, so it must have some sort of impact, right? There’s no time like the present to dive into one of the most entertaining and enlightening genres around. I grew up watching Big G on the small screen and though they might have been cheesy back then, I still loved them. In the ’90s and ’00s, they definitely lost the campy feeling and were more series. But again, pretty entertaining.
So if you’re looking to do a little Kaiju homework, here is a good place to start.
These are 3 titles from McFarland that cover different aspects of the Kaiju films. I would especially recommend David Kalat’s book, since not only is it a great book, but will give you more information than you thought possible. You can get more information or order these titles from McFarland’s website, by just clicking HERE.
