PULGASARI (1985) DVD
In feudal Korea, during the Goryeo Dynasty, a King controls the land with an iron fist, subjecting the peasantry to misery and starvation. An old blacksmith who was sent to prison creates a tiny figurine of a monster. When it comes into contact with the blood of the blacksmith's daughter, the creature springs to life, becoming a giant metal-eating monster named Pulgasari. Teruyoshi Nakano and the staff from Japan's Toho studios, the creators of Godzilla, created the film's special effects. North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il was a lifelong admirer of the director Shin Sang-ok, Godzilla, and other Kaiju films. He kidnapped the director and his wife, famous actress Choi Eun-hee, with the specific purpose of making fantasy/propaganda films for the North Korean government. Kim Jong-il also produced Pulgasari.
