Silver Scream Spook Show, Godzilla vs. Hedorah

CL Critic Curt Holman Recommends: If you like your kaiju movies colorful and silly rather than grim and moody, enjoy this 1971 battle royale between Godzilla and Hedorah, a marauding mutant that feeds on pollution. Check out the groovy, eco-friendly theme song “Save the Earth.” Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster screens as part of the Silver Scream Spook Show, Shane Morton’s tribute to classic horror hosts, featuring a kid-friendly matinee and an adults-only evening burlesque pre-show. — CH
From the venue:The microscopic alien life-form Hedorah feeds on Earth's pollution and grows into a poisonous, acid-secreting sea monster. After he sinks an oil tanker and attacks Dr. Toru Yano and his young son Ken Yano, scarring the doctor, Hedorah's toxic existence is revealed to the public. Ken Yano has visions of Godzilla fighting the world's pollution and insists Godzilla will come to humankind's aid against Hedorah.
