Destroy All Monsters (1968)

By DAVID WEINER

All of your favorite monsters unite in this 1968 Japanese extravaganza, that has a similar plot strain to Pacific Rim in that aliens are using monsters to destroy us! Everything is peaceful on Monster Island, where all of the world's giant destructive creatures are held -- until a group of nubile alien women brainwash the monsters and set them loose! Now Godzilla is free to attack New York City. Mothra takes Beijing. Rodan gets Moscow. Manda devastates London, while Paris is destroyed by Gorosaurus. Enter King Ghidorah, and all bets are off. Can mankind destroy all monsters, or will the monsters defeat humankind once and for all?
