The King of the Monsters sits atop our throne, so it’s about time we check out some overseas challengers. In this episode we jump from the mid 20th Century to the early 21st, exploring two Western takes on the traditionally Japanese kaiju genre. Join us for an essay by Calvin on Guillermo del Toro’s sensibilities – and love of monsters – before Stephen jumps in for a conversation about Pacific Rim and Cloverfield. Calvin defends his mechs; Stephen explains how Cloverfield is almost brilliant and, of course, our ranking of monsters is updated.
