I think that Godzilla vs. The Thing is probably my all time favorite of the Godzilla movies. This film is the one that introduced Mothra and the twin fairies of Infant Island. This film was a big scare for me as a kid. Sometimes I still have nightmares of a Godzilla like creature rampaging a city and me trying to hide from him.
The plot for Godzilla vs. The Thing?
After a fierce typhoon, a mysterious gigantic egg washes ashore. The twin fairies of Infant Island plea for the egg's return to Mothra, its rightful owner, but it's too late – greedy promoters have turned it into an amusement park attraction. Meanwhile Godzilla reawakens and tramples across Japan, heading straight for the big egg. Can Mothra save her offspring from Godzilla? Will Japan survive this epic monster battle?
I just love the beginning of the movie when they are talking about the 'giant monster egg' and are afraid to go after it. This film is easy for me to laugh at now, but at seven or eight years old, it was no laughing matter.
