Looks Unfamiliar Movie Double Bill Extra: “A Giant Raymond Burr The Size Of Godzilla”
Grab some popcorn and take a seat for a Looks Unfamiliar Double Bill of Monster Movie Mayhem from the archives! First up, we’re off to the video shop with Tim Worthington and Ben Baker for a look back at the tabloid-enraging zombie-strewn world of ‘Video Nasties’. Then grab your 3D glasses and head for the Drive-In as Garreth F. Hirons tells us all about the old-skool city-smashing antics of Godzilla and his many bewildering permutations and reboots. Along the way we’ll be meeting (and thankfully not hearing) the Japanese Donovan, queuing up behind Phil Cool to rent Zombie Creeping Flesh, and getting thoroughly fed up with all of the endless tedious ‘affair with an octopus’ storylines on EastEnders.

If you want to know more about Video Nasties, Godzilla and many more films and genres that more reputable texts would not touch with a King Cone, then you’ll enjoy Tim’s book Can’t Help Thinking About Me, a collection of columns and features with a personal twist. Can’t Help Thinking About Me is available in paperback here or from the Kindle Store here.
There’s more Russ Meyer chat – this time mainly about Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! – from Tim in his appearance on Perfect Night In, which you can listen to (and watch!) here.
