Japanese film festival bursts back into 2012 for a monstrous retro kaiju double
On Wednesday August 22nd 2012, horror, sci‐fi and kaiju fans can catch this
unique screening of both King Kong vs. Godzilla and Matango, Fungus of Terror,
both showing in their English language versions, at the Prince Charles Cinema in
This double whammy from the legendary director Ishiro Honda, creator of
Godzilla and the mastermind behind some of Japan's most inventive and
memorable apocalyptic visions, will be a unique opportunity to enjoy both films
as they were meant to be seen, on 35mm and in full widescreen TohoScope, on
one of London's biggest screens.
King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962) sees the world's two most monumental movie
monsters go head‐to‐head, slugging it out in their first ever colour widescreen
outing. The film remains the most commercially successful of all the Godzilla
films to date.
Matango, Fungus of Terror (1963), a hallucinogenic horror adapted from the
1907 short story "The Voice in the Night" by the English author William Hope
Hodgson, follows a yacht full of privileged Tokyo‐ites who are forced to face their
primordial selves after they find themselves washed up on deserted tropical
island festooned with clumps of fungus.
This Triple Creature Double Feature programme is sponsored by The Great
Britain Sasakawa Foundation, and will travel to a number of venues around the
UK following its London opening.
