This cult classic from the team behind Godzilla features no less than eleven monsters and became the inspiration for a notorious noise rock/performance art band that once included artists Mike Kelley and Jim Shaw along with members of the Stooges and the MC5. Set in the remote future of 1999, when the people of Earth have achieved world peace by confining destructive creatures to Monsterland (until an alien race intervenes), Destroy All Monsters mounts a thrilling display of innovative action sequences and memorable images that have made it a favorite for generations of viewers. Description adapted from Janus Films. (Dir.: Ishiro Honda, Japan, 1968, 89 min., DCP, Japanese with English subtitles)
