The List of Giant Monster Movies on Home Video

Postby UltramanGoji » Tue Oct 10, 2017 7:37 pm

Inspired by a conversation in the Toho Media forum, I decided to take it upon myself to start a thread based on categorizing which giant monster movies have releases on DVD and/or Blu-Ray.

The Godzilla series will be excluded from this list as there's already a topic in the Toho Media forum that covers this.

Since I live in the United States, this list will primarily be Region 1 only. If you know any films that should be included here, please reply and I'll add it to the list below.

Availability is based on Amazon searches. It will differ at other stores.




The Lost World (1925): Public domain, available on many budget DVDs and newly released on Blu-Ray.

King Kong (1933): Available on DVD as a single-disc release and a 2-disc release. Available on Blu-Ray as a single-disc Monster Mayhem re-release. Blu-Ray Digibook and DVD double feature with King Kong (1976) are OOP.

This is exactly what we needed, awesome! Kong 76 was just recently released again in DVD.

Also, X From Outer Space and King Kong 76 had sequels. G8 Summit and King Kong Lives.

I’ll be using this guide, so I will help contribute as well. :)
"Monsters are tragic beings. They are born too tall, too strong, too heavy. They are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them." - Ishiro Honda

Glad it helps!

I haven't seen the new Kong 76 DVD on Amazon, but it is available at Best Buy's website, so I'll update the listing.

Thanks for the reminders too! I was gonna include Monster X Strikes Back last night, but I was too tired and ended up forgetting it.




Added Monster X Strikes Back, King Kong Lives, and Son of Kong.

Awesome Goji. Hope I am helping and not just telling you what to do lol.

Do you consider the Mighty Joe Young remake worthy to be included? Technically Joe is bigger in that one than the 1949 one.

Also I am really hoping to get my hands on that Lost World Blu-ray

Not at all! The Wikipedia list I was using was VERY incomplete (missing almost all the Gamera movies and a few others) and it's hard to remember every single giant monster movie out there. You're a big help!

Mr. Yellow wrote:Do you consider the Mighty Joe Young remake worthy to be included? Technically Joe is bigger in that one than the 1949 one.


Hmm, I was debating on it but I guess it's worthy. I'll add it now.

Same, I've been waiting for a good quality release of this film for ages.

Between this and Night of the Living Dead getting a Criterion release next year, it's a great time for silent movie fans.

Indeed. I'll add it right away.

Thanks for the suggestion. This is an extremely massive list and I'll definitely be using it, although I don't think I'll include everything here (movies where the monsters are not the main focus/are not giant monsters will be excluded, such as the Transformers movies and Wizard of Oz).

Yeah, I agree that's more of a "movies where a giant monster appears" instead of Giant Monster Movies. But it's still handy. It should also spark good discussion on what people consider a giant monster movie lol.

Things like The Amazing Colossal Man are important.

Two corrections: Son of Kong should be The Son of Kong and you forgot to mention the Americanized version of Gamera vs. Gyaos.

Agreed. I hope this topic gains some traction (maybe even a sticky? :) ) and we can eventually come to a definitive list.

As for Amazing Colossal Man, that movie, for some reason, hasn't seen a R1 DVD release...like, at all. Very strange.

Adding a conjunction makes zero difference.

So I did. Looks like it was released in two cheap movie packs that I found on Amazon. I also mentioned the release that came with The Magic Serpent so it definitely makes sense to add it.

I agree that it makes zero difference.

However, I feel compelled, despite my better judgment, to point out that "the" is an article, not a conjunction.
Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world.

Wow, some of these movies I’d like to see streaming first before I buy any physical media. Or at least see the monster in action first. Things like The Relic look interesting, but I’m not sure how large the monster is.

Might end up adding streaming later, but not for a loooong while. :lol:

The monster in the relic is about the size of a rhino. Not kaiju-sized but certainly bigger than average.
