Kaiju are everywhere these days. The American Godzilla was a hit with the Japanese following up with their own Shin Godzilla breaking Japanese Box Office records and Kong: Skull Island trailers making waves. However the daddy of the Kaiju resurgence is Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim.
While the movie didn’t light up the box office like many had hoped, it did well enough and has enough of a hard core following that the sequel, starring Force Awakens’ John Boyega is currently filming. Boyega tweeted out the first look at several set photos today, and I am once again excited to see the Jaegars take on a new set of giant monsters. Take a look!

This week, on a very special episode of The Last Horrorcast, we discuss the miracle of life…and how if you’re not careful your baby will probably try and kill you. Scott and Bryan discuss 2009’s Grace and 1974’s It’s Alive. (We assume Doug’s out because he’s busy playing with his Doula.)
After the break, we have a ton of movies to talk about, as both Bryan and Scott had their own movie marathons recently. Titles mentioned include Green Room, Rolling Thunder, The Haunting in Connecticut, The Ruins, Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland, Happy Hell Night, Ticks, Madman, Bloodbath at the House of Death, Friday the 13th (2009), Pacific Rim, Wrong Turn, Rings (short), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), and Halloween (2007).
