Dialogue

Godzilla Raids Again

The Angilosaurus, otherwise known as the monster Angilas, is roughly 70 to 150 million years old. It was one of the stronger dinosaurs that lived in the prehistoric era.
Of course, Godzilla was also alive during that time. May I...?
What we know about them comes from Poland's world animal specialist, Professor Plateli Hondon. Let me read it to you.
Angilas is about 150 to 200 feet tall and it is also a carnivore. This behavior is typical for a creature this large.
However, one thing makes Angilas very different from other creatures of its time...Its behavior shows it was smart in how it employed its body. To continue, its chest and its abdomen were its only vulnerable areas. However, Angilas is one of the few creatures that had a thorough hatred for war-like predators.
The two must have fought since the beginning and now its come back from Godzilla's past.

Gigantis, the Fire Monster

Anguilosaurus, a monster commonly known as the Angurus. A specimen of giant reptile who roamed the Earth millions of years ago. Murderers, original plundering murderers who killed everything in their way. These creatures ruled the Earth at one time, then disappeared suddenly.
I'll read to you what it says: "Enormous in its size, tremendous in its strength. Somewhere, although it is not known when, these creatures may come alive after years of hibernation due to radioactive fallout. He has brains in several parts of his body, including the head, abdomen and the chest. He is a member of the Angurus family of fire monsters and can wipe out the human race." These boys saw both Gigantis and Angurus.

Gentlemen, who is there among us who knows the way to destroy Gigantis? There is no way. None that I happen to know of, not one. I'm afraid there is no weapon to kill the monster. I brought with me a film. It shows what such a monster did to Tokyo. I remember the terrible sight in the city of Tokyo. You shall see what the monster did. All right, run the film please.

What you are looking at, gentlemen, is the formation of the world, millions of years ago, as science has been able to reconstruct for you. Out of the boiling atmospheric gases of our planet Earth, nature evolved a world much hotter than the one we know of today. Out of these boiling Earth pools came a primitive form of life, which, normally enough, required oxygen and nitrogen. These creatures were born of fiery matter, their very existence was based upon the element of fire. They breathed fire, they survived in fire, fire was part of their organic makeup.
As the world changed physically due to fierce radiation released from the sun, everything dried up. Vegetation was suddenly wiped out by the intense cosmic rays which struck the Earth. The Earth was undergoing a violent change, there was an atmospheric change in temperature. The hardy prehistoric monsters went underground and, in order to survive, hibernated for a vast period of time, but the change had caused volcanoes all over the world. There were upheavals from within, as fiercely hot gases spewed out of the interior of the Earth’s core, which poured fiery lava down the surface of the Earth itself. Again the weather changed, to cold, then hot again, melting the ice and forming oceans, where upon a more moderate temperature set in. Now these prehistoric monsters came out of there hiding places, but they were conditioned to the terrible ordeal of fire and became almost indestructible. They lashed back at nature.
In the 20th century, man filled the air with radiation, which shook these prehistoric monsters from underground. The result was the first, Angurus. Here you see a member of the Angurus family. All of man’s instruments of defense have no effect on him. Electricity, fire, cannons, shells. Nothing seems to get him. We were desperate, helpless, as we watched in horror when an animal breathed his dreadful fire upon us and ravaged a city with the force of an army. There was simply nothing that science could do. Thousands of people fled in terror, as the monster continued his disastrous onslaught. Railroad stations, even trains, crumbled under his powerful legs. All of man’s genius seemed pale and weak, in comparison to the colossal strength contained in this monster’s body. We’d never seen anything so strong, so astoundingly powerful. He could lift up, in his jaws, an entire train car and swing it as though it were a toy, dropping it to earth, with awful consequences. He moved on, trampling people to death as he walked. This was a memory that froze our hearts, gentlemen. To see this awful killing and wanton destruction, it was something I shall never forget as long as I live. Yes, gentlemen, this monster wreaked havoc more dreadful than the hydrogen bomb. You have seen for yourselves exactly what happened.

Video Release Descriptions

The Japanese people are gripped by fear after hearing a report sent in by a pilot for a fishing company which gave an eye-witness account of a titanic struggle between two monsters on a lonely island in the distant sea. Godzilla, a pre-historic monster, has been awakened from its long sleep by the H-Bomb explosion and encounters an Angilas, a species of Angilosaulus, which had previously terrified the Japanese people.
These two dreaded monsters surface near Osaka and start a deadly duel in which the Angilas is eventually defeated. As Godzilla begins to disappear into the deep sea, Japanese officials decide they must destroy this radioactive-ray-breathing monster before it reappears and again threatens their homeland. A death struggle between the indestructible monster and human ingenuity and know-how ensues.
After innumerable attacks and counterattacks, brains overcome brawn and peace returns to the Japanese islands.
