Joint Podcast – TarsTarkas.NET and 4DK discuss Taiwanese Giant Monster Films – Part 1

Yes, now you can listen to TarsTarkas.NET while you workout at the gym or play us in the background while you hose off the women you keep in the pit in your basement. TarsTarkas.NET doesn’t judge, and certainly isn’t calling the cops, we’re just ordering a pizza. Yeah, that’s it!

Join Tars from TarsTarkas.NET and Todd from Die, Danger, Die, Die, Kill! as they discuss giant monster movies out of Taiwan, a mysterious subgenre stooped in obscurity and discovery. In fact, much of the information is based on speculation and internet gossip! But it has giant monsters, so it is automatically awesome, even if the films are boring. And please ignore how we get Monster From the Sea and The Savior Monk mixed up!

Films discussed include:

Tsu Hong Wu
The Fairy and the Devil
Monster From The Sea
The Savior Monk
Sea Gods and Ghosts
The Silver Maid
Devil Fighter
And more!

You can download the mp3 here (right-click, save-as) or just play it with a handy dandy flash version that I threw together with a few images from the movies discussed:

Coming soon will be Part 2, where annoying Taiwanese children will fly around and slaughter every giant monster they can find.

Devil Fighter Stills

  1. hey guys,

    Ken from, and here. Really enjoyed this chat about obscure genre movies such as this and the passion by fans to discuss such cult movies, obscure or not, is something I greatly enjoy and respect.

    Focus more on the adult Category III stuff myself but we’ve done Kaiju specials over at the podcast so check it out if you haven’t and keep at it guys. We need even more Asian cinema podcasts.

  6. What movie does the music at the beginning come from, I like it, love those old soundtracks, would love to see some of these films too.

    • Thank you Mr. Tarkas, I wish I knew of a way to obtain these films, I recently relaunched an old podcast from back in the day, The Cult Movie Podcast, and I would love to tackle some of these films myself. I think there used to be a site called Cinemageddon, but they are either closed or not accepting newbies. I promise I will credit you if you can help e out. I’m looking for these Taiwanese films and some Pashtos, and some Hong Kong flicks, the more obscure the better. Several films you and Todd have discussed, I would love to get my hands on. If you cannot provide links here, you can email me at ([email protected]) I am also on facebook ( and we can discuss privately. I am a huge fan of the site and the old podcast. Again, thank you for your replies.
