Kaiju Collection

ARROW has the best selection of the biggest and baddest city, village and bad guy stomping giant monsters around. Whether it’s heartbroken and angry hundred-foot tall apes, world-saving friend to all children turtles, enormous injustice smiting stone warriors, or even a gaggle of freaky looking spirits - we’ve got it covered. 
 
Make sure you’re wearing a helmet to keep you safe from our kaiju crew’s rubble as we unleash the Shaw Brother’s spin on King Kong: Mighty Peking Man; all of the spinning, flying and fire-breathing baddie battling Gamera’s adventures; the full trilogy of peasant protector Daimajin’s feudal fights for fairness; and the original three strange and spooky Yokai films, as well as the legendary Takashi Miike’s recent reboot.
