Kyle speaks with Mark Jaramillo (Kaiju Gaiden), Yasutomo Yoshida (Jet Jaguar short), Takayuki Hosonuma (Space Monster Numagirasu) & Tetsu Shioda about the indie Kaiju scene in Japan and more!
Hey folks, I’m heading to Japan (literally sitting in the Vancouver airport right now) so it’s time to release some episodes that I’ve been sitting on. The first of which is this live panel recorded at G-Fest XXII. Join us for In Search Of Monsters, the panel I hosted and asked Mark Jaramillo to be a part of at the convention. Additionally, we were joined by indie kaiju filmmakers Yasutomo Yoshida and Takayuki Hosonuma to talk about the production from their independent kaiju eiga.
1. Monster Annihilation by Kuniyo Miyauchi from Ultra Q (1966)
2. Showdown in Shinjuku by Daikaiju from Monster Surf EP (2001)
Bryan, Kyle and Rachel have been made even more disturbing for this discussion of The Great Yokai War (2005).
Y-y-y-y-y-y-yokai! We’ve returned (from the grave/shrine) to bring you another spooky cinema classic. Well, maybe this one isn’t considered to be a classic, but it’s an amazing film nonetheless! This month, we are looking at Takashi Miike’s The Great Yokai War (2005). This is a film with a scope so large, perhaps Miike could have been the only director that could have pulled this off. There are so many suits! So many creatures and monsters and sooooooo much awesomeness!
If you haven’t seen this movie – pick it up! It’s that good.
1. Main Titles by Akira Ifukube from King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962)
2. Godzilla by Fu Manchu from Go For It – Live! (2003)
3. Mystery of the Rokurokubi by Chumei Watanabe from Yokai Hyaku Monogatari (1968)
4. Quarrel Festival by Koji Endo from The Great Yokai War (2005)
5. Oshiete Jiji by Kiyoshiro Imawano & Yosui Inoue from The Great Yokai War (2005)
Thanks for listening and we hope you’ve enjoyed the two Yokai Spooktacular episodes this month!
