Caltiki, the Immortal Monster (1959, Italy / USA) Arrow Video Dual Format Blu-ray/DVD Review

Caltiki, the Immortal Monster (1959, Italy / USA) Arrow Video Blu-ray Review

It was very on trend in the 1950s for movies concerning blob-like creatures, with a taste for human flesh. There was The Blob, obvs, The Quatermass Xperiment, X the Unknown, and a whole slew of others, all squelching around, trying to cause as much chaos as inhumanly possible. Spotting the trend, director Riccardo Freda jumped on the amorphous bandwagon, with his sci-fi horror Caltiki, the Immortal Monster.

“Crawling, crushing colossus of terror!”

THE LEGEND OF THE STARDUST BROTHERS Collecter's Edition Dual-Format DVD/Blu-ray + Soundtrack CD Available 17th February from Third Window Films

In 1985, Macoto Tezka (son of the great manga artist Osamu Tezuka) met musician and TV personality Haruo Chicada, who had made a soundtrack to a movie which didn’t actually exist: The Legend of the Stardust Brothers. At the time Macoto was just 22 years old, a film-student with many short experimental films under his belt, but yet to make a feature-debut. With Chicada as producer, Tezka then adapted this “fake soundtrack” into the real movie story of The Stardust Brothers.

“Now you are reunited, your natural talent has awakened.”
