They also have an official website up, but it’s pretty skeletal at the moment. I think that we’ll probably start seeing some more substantial stuff in the fall/winter as the release date gets closer, but I’ll take whatever little scraps I can get for the time being. (source: FilmSchoolRejects.com)

Most fans tend to agree that Godzilla's Revenge is a low point in the Showa-era films. A lighter entry expressly intended for children, the movie essentially amounts to an extended dream sequence (half of which consists of stock footage from previous films) bookended by a storyline that really doesn't have anything to do with Godzilla whatsoever. Even as a kid, this was my least favorite of the films and whenever it would air on television, I generally didn't bother watching it... that is, except for the opening credits. I embarrassingly admit to loving the Godzilla's Revenge theme music: a bizarre, so-bad-it's-good, funky tune punctuated with random monster-like noises. It was created specifically for the North American release of the film, but very little is known about who was actually responsible for it. According to the opening text, the song was available on record (undoubtedly as a single), but to my knowledge it has never been included in any existing Godzilla soundtrack collection. Believe me, I've looked.
