Kaiju and / or Giant Creatures Sci-Fi

As our referenced quote states in SFMZ's Sci-Fi Subgenres A to Z, Kaiju Sci-Fi is a Japanese subgenre, long popular in the rest of the world. These epics always feature one or more kaiju, meaning big powerful quirky monsters. A major example is the "Godzilla" franchise, and that creature's American counterpart King Kong.

To broaden this sub-genre's window beyond the Japanese popular culture, I will be including all giant creatures found in sci-fi film. However, it will not include the big beasts found in fantasy such as Balrok in The Lord of the Rings.

Other examples excluded from this SFMZ feature are fantasy creatures like the Kraken in Pirates of the Caribbean or Clash of the Titans. Also, big beasts franchises like Godzilla or King Kong have a slew of sequels, spin-offs, and hybrids.

The fifties Kaiju/Giant Creatures sci-fi films listed below are featured in SFMZ's Fifties Sci-Fi section.
