Real quick here, dudes! I have to point you toward this incredible news just posted by the Kaiju Gurus over at Sci-Fi Japan!
What started out as just fan rumblings has begun to truly come to life – It really is shaping up to be the Year of GODZILLA! Kraken Releasing is bringing us three of Goji’s most fantastical Showa outings on Blu-Ray, and I could not be more excited. The three titles selected are some of the most unique and enjoyable to watch from the entire series:
– Ebirah: Horror of the Deep (1966)
– Godzilla vs Hedorah (1971)
– Godzilla vs Gigan (1972)
(click titles above to view our reviews/summaries of each title!)
I’m late to the game, but have been slowly collecting Blu-Rays since I received a player for Christmas this past year – and its been quite enjoyable! So far, both the original classic Gojira (1954) and Godzilla vs Biollante (1989) are available on Blu Ray here for Region 1 players (Us, UK, etc) – and I cannot wait to add these three classics to my collection! Stay tuned for distributing information, etc and make sure to read the entire article HERE at Sci Fi Japan or click their photo above to travel on thru!

Very good news, I like Ebirah quite a lot. Hedorah’s main selling points for me meanwhile are the funky music, and the result of the sad story of Yoshimitsu Banno. GIgan has to be one of if not the most terrifying films in the series, will be good though to get all 3 on something other than VHS recorded off the telly back in the mid 1990’s.
