In Daimajin, directed by Kimiyoshi Yasuda (Yokai Monsters, Zatoichi on the Road), the young son and daughter of the benevolent feudal lord Hanabusa flee to the mountains when their parents are slain by the treacherous usurper Odate. Ten years later, when the elderly priestess who has harbored them is also murdered, the rage of the slumbering ancient god that lies beneath the crumbling giant stone idol hidden deep in the forests in the mountains is invoked. In Return of Daimajin, Kenji Misumi (Tale of Zatoichi, Lone Wolf and Cub) brings his usual stylistic flourish, as the wrathful deity is roused from his new home on an island in the middle of a lake by the violent incursions of a vicious warlord. In the final film, Wrath of Daimajin, by veteran jidaigeki director Kazuo Mori, four young boys make a perilous trip to elicit the help of the ancient mountain god in freeing their family members who have been enslaved by a tyrannical lord. Remarkably overlooked in the West, these three thrilling tales of feudal oppression and divine retribution meted out by the iconic stone warrior of the title combine lavish period detail with jaw-dropping special effects.

Press Quotes

Surprising hybrids of chanbara and kaiju films, the titles in The Daimajin Trilogy, now available in a superb Arrow Video box set, are... eminently satisfying

     —Slant Magazine

Exquisite and expansive sets, special effects, massive battles, and a wonderful final act that redefines the word 'awesome.' Highly Recommended.

     —The Sound View

A must have for Kaiju fans

     —B & S About Movies

Arrow has once more brought to the world a classic that would have been missed and have included plenty of extras. Arrow Video went all out. Bravo to them for doing so. And for those who enjoy giant creatures, Japanese cinema, foreign films or just having a good old time then pick this one up.

     —Digital Views

The quality is top-notch

Awesome! Great, great stuff! Great visuals in this set and it looks amazing on blu-ray

     —Danny Filaccio, Cine Stalker

Fun in all its cheesy glory.
