Monsters are the real bane of movies and have been since the beginning of cinematic history. From Giant spiders to giant dinosaurs there’s a whole wide variety of monster movies. My favorite monster movie is the original 1954 Godzilla.

The original Godzilla was made as a horror film in 1954 from the Hiroshima bombing. The movie throughout has an eerie feeling to it even when Godzilla finally makes land. After all of his mayhem and destruction they show very scary and similar wounds and deaths from the Hiroshima bombing. It was truly a terrible historic event.

If you’ve only seen the American version stating Raymond Burr I highly recommend watching the original Japanese release of Godzilla.
