The Giant Behemoth review: 1950s America radiation fears spawn phallic monsters | AndersonVision
The Giant Behemoth followed in the wake of Godzilla. TOHO's jolly green giant won the hearts and minds of the world while inspiring a slew of copycats from every corner of the globe. Now, Allied Artists saw the chance to play upon English speaking fears with Asian style Kaiju. Due to a variety of factors, the push was to shoot the movie in the United Kingdom. To make up for the lack of American familiar locations, FX Legend Willis O' Brien was hired to build a monster for a new age.
