Opening Credits Sequence Theatre: Star Godzilla

This one is interesting, as it's the credits to a film I haven't been able to see. STAR GODZILLA was an unauthorized entry in the franchise made by a Hong Kong studio in 1980, and was quickly buried by Toho. The good folks over at Stomp Tokyo were able to provide a review, but now someone has finally gone and unearthed the opening sequence to this low-budget obscurity. Even though the actual credits are of course in Mandarin, the glowing backgrounds and haunting music hint at a very heavily stylized picture in the vein of GODZILLA VS. THE SMOG MONSTER, and there's a remarkable sense of tension from the outset. Enjoy.

I'm so sorry.
