Here is the original Japanese version of the biblical chaos monster.

Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956)
Running Time: 98 minutes.
| Look at the above images from the Godzilla film without Godzilla. These scenes are identical to actual documented scenes of the atomic bomb devastation during World War 2 in Japan. The movie is a way of retelling the horror that Japan had to endure. Godzilla is the chaotic horror of the nuclear age set in the ancient sea-monster myth. By adding Raymond Burr to the American version of the film, it makes nuclear concerns an American problem, too.
|| The chaos monster in the Bible is a type of Satan, the serpent of old, who comes to kill, steal and destroy. The strength of Toho's Godzilla character can be seen in its many spin-offs: Anguirus, BabyGodzilla, Baragon, Battra, Biollante, Destoroyah, Ebirah, Fairy Mothra, Fire Rodan, Gabara, Gigan, Godzilla, Godzilla Junior, Godzillasaurus, Gorosaurus, Hedorah, Jet-Jaguar, Kamacuras, King Caesar, King Ghidorah, Kumonga, LittleGodzilla, Manda, Mechagodzilla, Mecha-king, Ghidorah, Megalon, Minilla, Mogurea, Mothra, Rodan, SpaceGodzilla, Super Mechagodzilla, Titanosaurus, and Varan.
THE MAN WHO CREATED THE MOST FAMOUS MONSTER OF ALL TIME.
Godzilla is the father of all Japanese monster movies, and Tomoyuki Tanaka is the father of Godzilla. In the early 1950's Tanaka, a cameraman-turned-producer working for Toho Studios in Japan, was desperate for an idea... "I was up against a deadline when I first thought of Godzilla, and I made it up all at the last minute. At that time, Toho was collaborating with Indonesia to make a blockbuster film to be called "Beyond the Glory". This film was going to be Toho's 'eyeball' (premiere release) for the year. It was just before crank-in ... Ryo Ikebe and Toshiko Yamaguchi were to be the stars, but they couldn't get a visa from the Indonesian government. So the film was canceled. It was easy to say that the film was just canceled, but now I had to come up with something big enough to replace it. On the plane ride back to Tokyo, I was so desperate and I was sweating the whole time."
Below is a list of all the Godzilla squels and spin offs from Toho studios. This list demonstrates the popularity of the monster epic.
1. "Godzilla" 1954
This is my favorite short film of all time. I first saw it in a 70's film fest. The audience went wild.
