Dumb American scientist Healey accidentally revives Godzilla look-alike Varan after performing some saltwater experiments in a remote lagoon, despite the warnings of the local Japanese. Now unleashed, Varan wanders toward Tokyo destroying everything in his path (so what else is new?) and

frustrating the army's attempts to stop him. Eventually Healey invents a serum that will nullify the monster and has it shot into Varan's soft underbelly, ending the terror. Pretty laughable. The Japanese original was severely cut, and many scenes were added for US consumption (including all of

those featuring Healey, who did not appear in the original 1958 Japanese version). It seems safe to state that most of the monster special effects are the work of the Japanese craftsmen.
