Now, you may rectum… I mean, reckon … that a giant ass [aka arse] doesn’t offer much by way of creativity in its design — and you’d be right. Butt … sorry, BUT what justifies its inclusion here is the sheer, crazy, ASStonishingly tasteless audacity of making a movie that features a Godzilla-sized atomically mutated rear end attacking and destroying a major city. The concept is too bizarre NOT to be included in our list of Crazy Kaiju. It may not be a very “sophisticated” film (see trailer below), or even as good as it could have been — and it may be true that it takes way too long for the giant-monster ass to appear. But it’s probably the only giant-monster ass movie you’ll ever see — and all the references to Godzilla/Mothra (especially the two singing fairies that provide a musical commentary throughout) stamp it as kaiju through and through.

    There you go, Terry! You just knew the giant backside had to appear sooner or later, didn’t you?

  2. cat says:

    It had better be the only giant-monster ass movie I’ll ever see. Totally and utterly gross!

  3. Terry Frost says:

    I love this one. It cost around $5k to make. And the referencing of the Peanuts from Mothra is hilarious. This is the kind of movie you put on the big screen with the sound off when you’re having a party. Definitely a conversation starter. Mark Pirro’s Pirromount Studios site has some interesting in production films, too

  4. Backbrain says:

    Ever since “Rectuma”, Cat has stipulated that she’ll only watch a movie that doesn’t have any bums in it! It’s a very narrow field!

  5. Terry Frost says:

    No bums? There goes all of Nick Nolte’s movies…

  6. Avery says:

    It’s definitely a crazy looking little film!!LOL!!If this were a list for the’ funniest kaiju ever’,well,it would probably take number one!!Either way,it definitely deserves it’s spot on this list.

  7. chrisbarnes says:

    It cracks me up, but still, there’s something fundamentally wrong with this movie. The cheek of the producers! … I’m sure I could think up some more puns, but I just can’t be arsed.

  8. Backbrain says:

    Wow! You crammed more puns into that sentence than were in the whole movie!

  9. chrisbarnes says:

    Really? Then the scriptwriters just weren’t trying. I bet I could run rings around them.

  10. Terry Frost says:

    Hi Chris
    I could be totally anal and count the puns but I’m busy listening to a Chocolate Starfish CD right now…

  11. Backbrain says:

    Ha! See! These comments by you guys simply prove Cat’s point that the film is an evil influence…

  12. Avery says:

    I’m gonna have to pick up a copy of this film now.It just looks too funny!!

  13. ergo says:

    wow, thats some bad-ass movie

  14. tohoscope says:
