It's been a long time since I've done one of these "Monster of the Week" features, but that's no reason not to start it back up, or at least try to. Anyway, since the new Xenorama is all about Mothra, I figured it would be a fine time to feature the large lepidotaran in a post of her own. Any maybe send people looking for copies of this fine fanzine called Xenorama. It's got a lot of great information about all the movies Mothra has ever been in (to date) plus a lot of other great stuff!
The movie itself is one of the finest monster movies ever made. There's so much to recommend it, and the US version is just as good as the Toho version. It's that well dubbed.
