Giant Monster Varan, Daikaij Baran, Varan the Unbelievable, DVD - WIDESCREEN - JAPANESE VERSION - UNCUT!
Varan the Unbelievable, released in Japan as Giant Monster Varan (¿¿¿¿¿¿ Daikaij¿ Baran ), is a 1958 Kaiju film directed by Ishir¿ Honda (drama) and Eiji Tsuburaya (special effects), and their last black-and-white monster film. The title character Varan is one of Toho Studios' least-famed creations. Although shown in Japanese-language theaters in the USA, the film saw general U.S. release in 1962 only after being heavily revised, in the manner of Godzilla, King of the Monsters!, to have all principal scenes reshot with American actors. Indeed, the plot itself was generally revised, and the Japanese material consisted only of special effects, a few incidental shots, and the ending scene.
Originally, the film was to be produced for American television, but the American producers backed out at the last minute. With most of the film already completed, Toho's crew filmed additional scenes and it was released in Japanese theaters.
This is not the hacked up American version! This movie is straight from Japan! Uncut!
