A god incarnate. A city doomed. Shin Godzilla is a refreshing and entertaining return to the kaiju’s creature-feature roots. One peaceful day in Japan, a strange fountain of water erupts in the bay, causing panic to spread among government officials. At first they suspect only volcanic activity, but one young executive dares to wonder if it may be something different... something alive. His worst nightmare comes to life when a massive gilled monster emerges from the deep and begins tearing through the city, leaving nothing but destruction in its wake. As the government scrambles to save its citizens, a rag-tag team of volunteers cuts through a web of red tape to uncover the monster’s weakness – and its mysterious ties to a foreign superpower.
A homicide detective goes undercover as a patient to investigate a psychotherapist he believes is linked to a strange double murder. As his therapy sessions continue the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur.
This strange and utterly unique new film takes us on a journey into a fractured psyche, putting a peculiarly British take on the psychological thriller.
