Editorial Reviews

During WWII, a human heart taken from a certain lab in Europe (Dr. Frankenstein’s) is kept in a Japanese lab. When it gets exposed to the radiation of the bombing of Hiroshima, the heart grows in size, mutates and sprouts appendages, and eventually grows into a complete body and escapes. Later, a feral boy with a certain physical deformity (a large head with a flat top) is captured by scientists who refer to the boy as Frankenstein. The creature grows to the height of 20 feet, escapes again, fights police and army, and is practically indestructible. Later, a reptilian monster goes on a rampage. Eventually the Frankenstein creature and the reptile face off in a terrible battle.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the year for Japanese Monster Buffs! May 20, 2007
I cant believe That "Ghidorah:The Three Headed Monster", "Astro Monsters", and now "Frankenstein Conquers the World" are all (after years of waiting) finally being released in the same month. The only cherry on the cake would be "War of the Gargantuas" but I dont want to seem too greedy.
This movie rocks!! Where else can you see a giant sized Frankenstein Monster fight another giant monster called Baragon? - I tell you No Where But Right Here My Friend!! Buy this little piece of wonderment, invite your friends over, drink many beers, and let yourself endulge on a buffet of monster madness!
This is the start of a very good summer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Going to be Tokyo Shock's best release. June 5, 2007
By Sean
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been waiting for this movie to come out for quite some time. This movie and War of the Gargantuas. You gotta love the beautiful Ms. Kumi Mizuno. Beside her, the movie is good, one of Toho's best. Add that with the features this DVD is packing. Both Japanese and American releases along with deleted scenes and commentary. A must have for all Toho and movie monster fans. This year has been a blessing for Toho fans with the rereleases of their movies on DVD in widescreen modes and with special features. Grab your friends and a six pack of beer and watch all these rereleased DVDs.

"Frankenstein Conquers the World" (or "Frankenstein vs. Baragon") is a wonderful Japanese-American kaiju movie presented here by Tokyo Shock in a beautiful package. The package contains two discs and three versions of the movie, one primarily a Japanese release, one primarily for American audiences, and one for International audiences (which seems to be the Japanese version with the alternate giant octopus ending). Note that there are other versions out there, but three versions are plenty for me. The set has numerous extras including deleted scenes, extra footage, previews, still photos (of lobby cards, advertising materials, etc.), and a wonderful commentary by Sadamasa Arikawa, the chief cameraman and director of special effects (who appears over the International version).

The short version of the plot is that the Germans realize defeat is imminent in World War Two, so they give the heart of Frankenstein's monster, which cannot be killed, to their ally, Japan, for secret military purposes. Unfortunately, the experiments get underway in Hiroshima early in the morning of August 6, 1945, just as a B-29 drops an atomic bomb on the city. Fast forward fifteen years and a mysterious mute waif who eats dogs starts terrorizing the community, while nearly simultaneously Baragon appears destroying some oil fields. Clearly the film is headed for a conflict of epic proportions, and over the remainder of the movie Frankenstein grows enormously, tangling with Baragon in amusing fight scenes. Depending on which version you watch, a third kaiju, in this case an enormous octopus, wanders through the forest to join the fight as well.

This is a very entertaining film on a lot of levels, but mostly in a fun man-in-a-rubber suit (or lots of makeup) takes on all contenders way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frankenstein and Baragon Collide! July 8, 2008
Frankenstein vs. Baragon is a good sci-fi monster movie that is very entertaining and is worth buying. It has an original story and a great cast (especially Nick Adams)!

The movie also introduces the monster Baragon. And he would go on to star in two Godzilla movies. And it all started here in 1965. This would be his first battle to the death.

Buy this movie and enjoy! The price is cheap and its worth every penny! Enjoy this Toho classic! :)

4.0 out of 5 stars NICE TO SEE THIS ON DVD! KEEP THEM COMING! June 28, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must admit that I liked these ToHo films as a kid,but they are mostly for laughs now.I guess a little for nostalgia too. These Japanese Monster movies are just hysterical! I had not seen this one for many years and I was doubled over with laughter watching it! It is great that they released this film and I would have given it 5 stars,but I remember some different scenes as a kid that ended up in the deleted scenes section of this release. Still all and all a great buy with 3 versions of the film and lots of extra goodies. I would love to see "War Of The Gargantuas", "The Green Slime" and " Yog Monster from Space" released! TOHO FAN ALERT: YOG MONSTER FROM SPACE WAS JUST RELEASED UNDER THE TITLE - SPACE AMOEBA!

The U.S. title of this movie has nothing to do with the actual movie. He just goes up against another monster and both lost battle.
