 Re: the wolfman vs godzilla?!
Very interesting; this is probably what the proposed Godzilla vs. Gargantua movie would have looked like with Godzilla on the small size like in that vs. Wolfman photo.

The part that surprised me was this:
Quote:
The first rumor was that the film was only 10 minutes in length. In actuality, the film was conceived to be a feature length motion picture, complete with human drama and location shots. This was a far cry from my original perception of a scratchy, silent film of two suited actors wrestling around without direction.

The second dispelled rumor was that the film was unfinished. This was only half true. Principal photography wrapped in the mid 1980s. Over ten hours of raw footage exists. Post production such as editing, sound design, and visual effects have been in progress slowly over the past few decades. This was a meticulous labor of love years in the making.



I can understand wanting to make your own little 10 minute what-if Godzilla vs. whatever for your own amusement, but a feature-length movie? I assume this was all done without TOHO's blessing, so distribution (re: profit) would be impossible. It must be nice to have that much money and free time to make a movie for fun.

There was a website I saw serveral years ago that listed proposed Godzilla movies (like the aformentioned vs. Gargantua) and another I remember was vs. The Devil. I wonder if this Wolfman movie was on the list...

 Re: the wolfman vs godzilla?!
since they all work in the industry i think its almost like a resume piece too and just a way for them to try out some crazy ideas directors won't let them do.

http://www.tohokingdom.com/cutting_room.htm

here's one of those sites devoted to unfinished godzilla/toho films. it doesn't list this one.

i would have loved loved to have seen godzilla vs the devil made in the 70's. it would have been so wonderfully weird being made in the post exorcist film world.

I believe that's the website I was referring to. Thanks for supplying the link astroal; I lost my bookmark many moons ago.
