Geharha: The Dark and Long Hair Monster (長髪大怪獣ゲハラ,   Chōhatsu Daikaijū Gehara, lit. Long Hair Giant Monster Geharha) is a 2009 made-for-television short kaiju film. It aired on the NHK program Paphoo! on February 24, 2009.[1]

Plot

Two fishermen were on a boat. The boat suddenly began shaking and soon exploded as Geharha rised from the ocean. One fisherman survived Geharha's attack and was found completely bald. He was admitted into a hospital where he began suffering from violent outbursts, screaming the word "hair" quite often. This intrigued a photographer to go deep into a forest looking for anything possibly connected to the attack on the boat. He found a broken stone that read 'Geharha Shrine'. He came across a wooden house full of people that worshipped Geharha, practicing a native dance dedicated to the beast. Their leader told the report that Geharha had escaped and that nothing could be done to stop it. Geharha attacked the city and was attacked by the military, but their weapons were useless. They then made a giant fan which they used to fight Geharha, destroying the area around it in the process. The military continued to attack Geharha, driving him out of the city. They tracked him down in the mountains and bombed him, eventually killing him and causing his body to fall into a river. However, a UFO then came and captured Geharha. They threatened the humans to surrender and then revived Geharha, setting him free to attack Japan once again.
