Video: Godzilla Vs. the Thing, 8mm Version!


  1. When they did these, were they really only 3ish minutes in length?

    Adding the music (since I'm assuming they were silent) and the way they were edited really makes them feel like lost silent films.

  2. Well, it varied... there were usually two different size reels that were offered for sale (not necessarily that the same movie would be offered in two different lengths, mind you, just that there were two lengths available for home movies)... I'm pretty sure this is from the smaller one.

    I only own one Super 8mm movie, but no projector, so I can't even guess what the actual running times tended to be...
