Ultraman 1.31 – Who Goes There?

Oh, dear. The giant monster wrestling is exceptionally tedious in this one, which is a shame because the director went for the look and feel of a horror film with the tempo sped up and for a while, and whenever that ridiculous plant monster costume isn’t on screen, it worked really well. Our son was very frightened by the weird guy and all the creeping around in dark shadows, so for him it was a big triumph.

For those of you keeping track, the plant creature is an alien called a Keronia, and its kind landed in the jungles of Bolivia twenty years ago and have been slowly growing. This is one of the minority of enemies in this show who can speak and make their space monster threats. Somehow this becomes even sillier when the speaker is a hundred feet tall.
