Terror of Mechagodzilla
In Godzilla’s last appearance in the Showa era, aliens rebuild Mechagodzilla with the aid of an unhinged biologist, in hopes of defeating Godzilla for possession of Earth. This film marked the return of director Honda, who had retired years earlier, disheartened by the increasingly kid-friendly approach of the series. Honda steers the King of the Monsters back into very dark territory, interweaving an alien-invasion plot with a tale of tragic romance.
