We are joined again by guest host Trev (Days of Future Podcast, Failure to Franchise) to discuss the recent micro budgeted Zillafoot. This backyard indie about a giant lizard/ape hybrid was originally released in 2019, but was re-released in 2021 after adding crowd sourced scenes from podcasters, YouTubers, and others in the kaiju fandom. We also discuss the nature of modern b-movie film making and what it means to make a low budget film without being cynical. There's references to numerous kaiju films, Ultraman, and more, but does Zillafoot overcome its ultra low budget limitations? Listen and find out. But first, we talk about Toho's baffling relationship with fans on social media including their bizarre Godzilla twitter account and their recent crowd funding attempt for a new Gigan suit. Check it out!
