Dana Gould on

The War of the Gargantuas

Released 1970
Distributor Maron Films

The War of the Gargantuas was planned as the sequel to Inshirō Honda’s Frankenstein Conquers the World but director Inshirō Honda had problems; he was in a contract dispute with the studio and star Tab Hunter was replaced by a less than cooperative Russ Tamblyn. Nevertheless Honda got his movie made with two of Toho’s best stuntmen facing off as Sanda and Gaira, the hairy behemoths who use Tokyo as a wrestling ring. A cult film if ever there was, the movie counts Brad Pitt and Guillermo del Toro among its fans.
