KAIJU MANIA THIS WEEK ON THE DRIVE-IN ASYLUM DOUBLE FEATURE!

This Saturday night on the Groovy Doom Facebook page, we’re forgetting Godzilla vs. Kong and enjoying some weirdo kaiju, the same things should be, starting at 8 PM East Coast Time.

First up, Infra-Man! You can watch this on Vimeo.

Ready for a drink recipe?

Infra-Man of Paradise

  • 3 oz. gin
  • 1.5 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • Dash of grenadine
  • Club soda, to taste
  1. Shake up everything but the club soda with ice.
  2. Pour into an ice-filled glass, top with club soda and enjoy.

Then, we’re gonna get all Yeti on you! Yeti, Giant of the 20th Century is on Tubi.

Yeti Colada, Cocktail of the 20th Century

  • 1 oz. Kraken rum (or your rum of choice, but a cryptozoological rum makes sense here)
    • I’m probably going to add a second rum here. I’d advise a Malibu for the light drinkers and a heavier one, like Crazen 137 Hurricane Proof for people like me
  • 1 oz. coconut cream
  • .5 oz. coconut milk
    • Note: You can also just use 1.5 oz. of Pina Colada mix
  • 1 oz. pineapple juice
  • Handful of pineapple chunks
  • Maraschino cherries, to taste
  1. Throw everything and some ice into a blender. Get it nice and frothy.
  2. Comb your hair with fish bones and enjoy!

We can’t wait to see you on Saturday.

THE END OF THE WORLD TWICE ON THE DRIVE-IN ASYLUM DOUBLE FEATURE!

This Saturday night on the Groovy Doom Facebook page, we’re watching two different ways the world goes bye bye, starting at 8 PM East Coast Time.

Up first, when the comet takes out everyone, head to the mall with Night of the Comet. You can watch it on Tubi.

We’re gonna set a drink on fire before the movie. Get ready!

Teenage Mutant Horror Comet

  • 1 oz. butterscotch schnapps
  • 1 oz. Goldschlager
  • 1 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • Everclear or 190 proof moonshine
  • Cinnamon
  1. Add schnapps, Goldschlager and Bailey’s to a shaker with ice and shake until cold.
  2. Strain into a glass, then top with a float of your high proof and sprinkle on some cinnamon.
  3. Light it up, blow it out and drink it up!

Our second film is Demons, which is one of the best movies ever. I can’t wait to watch it with everyone. It’s on YouTube.

Metropol Demon Blood (with Eyeballs) (taken from here)

  • 2 oz. pineapple juice
  • 4 oz. lemonade
  • 1.5 oz. whiskey
  • Frozen green grapes

SON OF KAIJU DAY MARATHON RECAP

Another day of giant monsters is in the book and for now, Tokyo can rebuild.

To see the last run we did of these movies, you can check out the recap of the original Kaiju Day Marathon. We also have a B and S About Kaiju list on Letterboxd.

On the Son of Kaiju Day Marathon, we watched these films and shared these stories:

TEAM KONG

TEAM GODZILLA

TEAM KAIJU

 

Son of Kaiju Day Marathon is tomorrow!

We’re doing another day of kaiju madness. Yes, an entire day of giant monster movies last week wasn’t enough, so we’re getting excited about Godzilla vs. King Kong starting on HBO Max on March 31.

This time, we’re going deep with kaiju from around the world as well as some articles about the history of giant monsters and an article about King Kong-themed pro wrestlers.

Join us all day!

KAIJU DAY MARATHON RECAP

We may have gone a little crazy over there finally being a new King Kong and Godzilla movie and posted way too many articles for you to read. Our lack of sleep is your gain, so please enjoy this list of everything we posted as well as all of our past giant monster movies.

TEAM KONG

TEAM GODZILLA

TEAM KAIJU

We’ve also posted these past kaiju-friendly reviews that you may enjoy!

TEAM GAMERA

LEGENDARY TEAM KONG

LEGENDARY TEAM GODZILLA

EVERYTHING ELSE

We’ll be back Wednesday with more kaiju to celebrate the HBO Max airing of Godzilla vs. Kong. See you then.

KAIJU DAY MARATHON

To celebrate the March 25 release of Godzilla vs. Kong, we’re going to blow this site up like Anguirus was back in town with at least one kaiju-related post every single hour until we go back to bed at midnight.

That’s right — get ready to take deep dives into Kong, Godzilla and all manner of creatures in between, with columns from R. D Francis and Jennifer Upton, along with some of our favorite giant monster articles all the way back to the first weeks of the site.

Here’s to stomping cities into dust and picking up buses and throwing them back down!

MEET UNKLE SPOOKY ON THE DRIVE-IN ASYLUM DOUBLE FEATURE!

This Saturday night on the Groovy Doom Facebook page, Unkle Spooky will join us as we show two crazy movies that go underground. Up first is Hellhole, which starts at 8 PM East Coast Time.

You can watch Hellhole on Tubi and drink this while you’re at it.

Hellhole (yes, that’s the real name!)

  1. Build over ice and drink. Pretty simple!

Our second film is absolutely deranged and we like it that way. It’s The Pit and it’s about teddy bear demons and shoving old people into holes in your backyard. It’s on YouTube thanks to our pals at Blechbuster Video.

  • 1 oz. 99 Apples (or any apple schnapps)
  • 2.5 oz. apple juice
