How do you follow up on 1954’s Godzilla? Moreover, how do you capitalise on 1954’s Godzilla? In this episode, Stephen and Calvin take on this question, exploring two different responses. On one hand, we have 1955’s direct sequel to Godzilla — Godzilla Raids Again — a cynical cash grab (with an interesting production story). On the other hand you have another studio trying to make their own Godzilla: 1965’s Gamera: The Giant Monster. These films are two different answers to the same question, divergent results that make for one interesting discussion.
