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.

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!

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.

How do you adapt a classic, non-giant monster for Japanese, Kaiju films? Super-size him with nuclear fallout, that's how.

Hey, the premise for "Frankenstein vs. Baragon" may sound a little whack but it actually works... I mean, who can really say what all sorts of colorful effects, excessive radiation can have on a 19th century, undead artificial-intelligence which has been kept in stasis by the Nazi's. Turns out this film is a pretty decent versus offering in spite of Frankenstein's (yes... we all know he's the monster but that's how he's popularly referred to) geeky caveman appearance and Baragon occasionally looking like a colossal puppy-dog, and furthermore provided a prequel for the exceptional 1966 film "War of the Gargantuas".

Bells & whistles on this DVD set include some deleted scenes (not particularly inspiring), the original trailer (*snores*) as well as the original, Japanese subbed and English dub on two separate discs. Speaking of which, is it just me or does anyone else think it would be awesome if when the studios perform the digital transfer, they'd re-dub `em as well... I'd so love to hear some contemporary, Funimation voice-actors in these much-beloved films. :o)
