Here, we shall share ideas for our own giant monster flicks! Provide posters if you wish.
A film that demonstrates humanity's ability to create monsters and violence through their own intolerance and fear.
A meteorite that fell into the ocean off the coast of Osaka is covered up for years by the government, until it is forgotten by the public, except for a young reporter who is obsessed with conspiracies, and her little sister, for whom she tries to protect from the evils of the world... Perhaps even a little too much.
A fishing vessel's anchor becomes stuck around the area the meteorite fell... Requiring the ship's captain to dive down. When he swiftly resurfaced, he was clearly traumatised. He was shaking, panting, unable to speak. He had seen something... And it had broken him. Later on, he is forced to be admitted to a mental asylum, screaming tales of a creature beneath the waves, who was sent to punish mankind with cleansing fire. Naturally, nobody believed him... Nobody except the reporter. She knew there must be something down there... And her suspicions only grew when the military seized the bay, commanding the civilians not to panic.
At night, when the public had been sent away from the bay, ordered to stay in their homes, the reporter watched while a myriad of high-explosives were loaded onto ships, before setting sail to where the meteorite reportedly fell... It became obvious that whatever was happening, people were scared. They wanted rid of whatever hid beneath the sea.
After a while, out in the fog, the sharp wet crack of depth charges could be heard. There was a long, dreadful silence, before thundrous explosions tore through the night, and the mist was painted with the orange plumes of the ships' ruination. Silence once again.. Until the water began to ripple, soon becoming vast waves which turned boats and beat against the docks... By now the people were staring out of their windows and gathering in the streets. A titanic shadow rose slowly out of the sea; a dark silhouette against the orange fog... It lifted its head to the sky... And a horrifying shriek filled the air.
It was then that the little people realised that their nightmares had become reality.
Humanity had lit the fuse of its own destruction.
They should have left her alone.
At this point, that is the beginning of the story, but it is already a pretty typical monster movie. It will follow the journey of the young reporter, who will get separated from her sister as Kyorah tears up the town, angry that her slumber was disturbed by human violence. As the movie progresses, it will be gradually revealed that Kyorah, despite her infernal strength and ferocity as she destroys the city, is actually a creature who only wishes to be left to her own devices, and her rampage is only a result of humanity's attack.
Be sure to share your own Kaiju films!
Not a poster... Just her to show what Kyorah looks like.
