Furankenshutain No Kaiju: Sanda Tai Gaira (1966)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Japanese version: The sole survivor of a Japanese fishing boat is hospitalized in extreme shock, and later tells a story that no one wants to believe. In the woods, campers and hikers disappear and leave only chewed-up clothes, and other people report sightings of hairy giants. An American scientist investigates, then a Japanese scientist recounts what happened years earlier in Furankenshutain tai chitei kaiju Baragon (1965). He had found a mutated feral boy with a flat head, named it Frankenstein, and it grew 20 feet tall, rampaged, and was destroyed. Now there is another Frankenstein, only it is 100 feet tall with brown fur all over. There also is a second monster just like it, only with green skin and fur, and it eats people. Both had grown out of fragments of the first monster's body. Both Frankensteins are nearly indestructible, both team up against the armed forces, and more monsters can grow from them. Then these Frankensteins turn against each other and wage a battle to the bitter end, with the city of Tokyo as their battle arena. American version: same as above, only the monsters are named Gargantuas, the green Gargantua had grown from a piece of the brown Gargantua's body, and the brown Gargantua's origin is unknown.

- This film was a sequel to the film Furankenshutain tai chitei kaijū Baragon (1965). However, all references to the previous film were cut from the American version of this film.
When the film was released in America, Russ Tamblyn had to re-dub his own voice because of a malfunction in the soundtrack.
In one draft of the script, the film was to end with the volcano not only destroying Sanda and Gaira, but the lava was to destroy Tokyo and the remaining cells of the two monsters as well.
Tab Hunter was originally chosen to play Doctor Paul Stewart.
