Simitar Entertainment, Inc. was an American entertainment company founded by Mickey Elfenbein and Philip Kives in 1985. It released three Godzilla movies to VHS in North America in 1990. In 1998, in order to capitalize on the impending release of TriStar Pictures' GODZILLA, Simitar re-released two of its earlier three Godzilla films to VHS along with three others. It also made all of these films available on DVD for the first time in the region. After Simitar went bankrupt in 2000, all of the Godzilla films it had released except for Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster were acquired and released again to DVD by Classic Media.
