Nosutoradamusu No Daiyogen (1974)

Nosutoradamusu No Daiyogen (1974) This film looks like someone's nightmare placed on film. It skillfully weaves weird disastrous futuristic events into the lives of a family of protagonists while at other times reducing them to absent observers of a world gone wild. The film has all the peculiar logic in a manner that makes sense within the dream, but has no narrative logic. The only real story to this film is that Professor Nishiyama believes in the prophecies of Nostradamus, both describing and witnessing future events.

Movie Tagline:
L'an mil neuf cens nonante neuf sept mois, / Du ciel viendra un grand Roy d'effrayeur, / Resusciter le grand Roy d'Angolmois, / Avant apres, Mars regner par bon heur.

  • In 1999 all the human beings will be dead. We have only 25 years of great fear remaining. This motion picture is the incredible fruit of the most advanced scientific mind and limitless imagination. [English translation of Japanese tagline.]

Movie Trivia:
  • During the film's initial release, scenes (including the notorious climactic mutant scene and the cannibal attack in New Huinea) received hard criticism, so Toho ended up selling a cut version to overseas markets. The film showed up once on Japanese TV in early 1980 before being pulled from circulation altogether. Toho also tried to release the film to VHS and laserdisc in the late 1980s, but the release was canceled (although an employee released a print to the black market.) The film is not banned, as is often reported - Toho simply appears to be afraid of releasing it in Japan because of the offensive nature of several key scenes. Apparently the film is for sale to U.S. distributors for DVD release. It seems unlikely that a U.S. DVD, if produced, will include the original 114 minute Japanese cut.
  • Was the highest-grossing domestic release of its year.
  • Since this was a full-scale production, Toho required the use of all of their own visual effects soundstages. However, during filming of a special effects scene, a pyrotechnical accident caused a fire that burned down part of the main visual effects soundstage, an incident that was very widely reported in Japan at the time. The fire destroyed a number of costumes and props from earlier Toho tokusatsu classics that were kept in storage at the time, including the original Mogera costume from Chikyű B˘eigun (1957).
