Kaiju, literally translated from Japanese means strange beast. In common language it has come to refer to any sort of monster movie, especially ones with outlandish monsters.

The Undead Backbone has been running a series over the past few days called the Top 20 Craziest Kaiju Countdown where they are showcasing the best examples of genre.  Number 1 on their list dropped a few days ago (a giant space chicken) and now I’m pointing all of you toward it to go check out the whole thing.

It’s where I got the movie for the last post, and is a great collection of obscure and interesting monsters.
