Your Kaiju of the Week is…


Hedorah is basically a giant mutating garbage eating pile of pig vomit from space. He has 4 forms, all of which push the mighty Godzilla to the brink. Even his moldy flying lasagna form proved formidable.

Hedorah firmly took his place among Godzilla’s greatest challenges in their 1971 epic, Godzilla vs. Hedorah AKA Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster AKA Godzilla Scared Stupid. He was able to blind the big guy in one eye and charred up one of his arms pretty good too. He’s also notable for obviously killing an ungodly amount of people on screen, somewhat of a no-no for Godzilla films of the time. He makes for a good villain, well at least until Godzilla fries him and turns him into a burnt out smoking husk that looks like something you’d get at a Mexican restaurant under the “House Specials!” section.

Hedorah only appeared one more time, in Godzilla: Final Wars, where he got the shit kicked out of him pretty quickly. And that was that. So to you Hedorah, you big not subtle way of judging man’s polluting ways, we nod firmly in your direction. God Bless you.

I bet Hedorah stinks.
