Cabin in the Woods. Now that you mention it, Kaiju are probably the only thing missing from that fine movie.

I like to imagine that it was one of the options for the Japanese version of the ritual, along with a nine-tailed fox and an infestation of umbrella goblins.

Whereas the Brazilian ritual would feature a Mapinguari/Capelobo, a Caapora and some variety of goblin with no pênis and no anus, and if performed during Carnaval, no drugs would be needed to induce stupidity and unnecessary promiscuous behavior.

Might not the giant Freddy using one of the kids as a marionette possibly count as a kaiju? I've been toying with this idea for some time...

*taps heels together 3 times*

What would Robert Englund say? What would Robert Englund say? What would Robert Englund say?

Now my next suggestion is Kill Bill, Vol. 2. I feel the first movie is perfect but the second volume is just a hair off. Might not Bill's hacienda be a cooler place if the jungles around it were stalked by, I dunno, 50-foot venomous Cassowaries or if Bill himself transformed into a kaiju before Kiddo's eyes as the drug he gave her started to take effect?

Resident Evil is a movie where the final menace is a distinct letdown because of how un-kaijuish it is.

Here's a movie that would have been improved with a real kaiju: Cloverfield.

Mean to Clover! I thought she was kind of cute.

*hearkens to a distant rimshot*

The same goes for Wendigo, by the way.

There was a Wendigo-themed filmed called Frostbiter that featured a giant stop-motion centaur monster.

I would love to see a version of RCMP and the Lost Treasure of Genghis Khan with, you know, just one kaiju after another. This would be a great opportunity to use furry kaiju because it would all go down in the Great White North.

Remember that dragon Emmanuelle Seigner was riding in some of the illustration of Satan's book in The Ninth Gate? Would it not have been boss to have her appear at some point riding that dragon in live action -- or, considering what the dragon appears to have represented, to have Johnny Depp turn into a dragon during the pertinent scene?

A while ago, Juniper and I got to talking about this one incredible Jehovah's Witness apocalypse exegesis pamphlet (which she remembered from being raised JW, whereas I knew it from the time some door-to-door God-botherers gave a copy to my grandmother), and we both agreed that an illiterately literal reading of Revelation 13 would produce a pretty incredible kaiju movie if it used that pamphlet's design for the ten-horned, seven-headed beast. Check it out-- I'm sure you'll see what I mean.

(The same pamphlet had some pretty neat renditions of the monsters from Daniel 7, too, but that Revelation 13 guy is in a whole other league.)

That's pretty awesome. Part ceratopsian, part big cat, all Satanic!

No one tell the Asylum about that. I realize they're the only ones that would be likely to make a movie with something like that, but dammit, it should be in a good movie.

Maybe I need a new antagonist for my Godzilla movie...

Oh, that was played in the theater in NYC, even! Yoink!

That Jehovah's Witness end-times dragon is EPIC.
