Dracula! Frankenstein’s Monster! The Wolfman! These are not the monsters you think about when someone mentions Japan’s Toho Studios. But between 1965 and 1974 Toho produced six films featuring these iconic movie monsters: Frankenstein Conquers the World (65), War of the Gargantuas (66), Horror of the Wolf (73), and the notorious Bloodthirsty Trilogy (1970-74). Join religion and cultural studies scholar Justin Mullis to discuss these long neglected and overlooked horror movies from Toho’s golden age and how exactly one goes about turning a classic western movie monster into a Japanese one!
