I remember watching an old sci-fi movie as a kid, but I can't recall too many details, unfortunately.

It seemed to be sort a knock-off of a Godzilla movie. There were two or three large monsters that were terrorizing the Asian population.

I remember one scene in particular where a large, green walking monster with tentacles, picked up a man in a white jumpsuit and hard hat and smashed him into some power lines (he worked at a power plant).
There were also one or two other different type of monsters causing the same type of damage.

If I had to guess, it was made in the 70s or 80s.

Does anyone know this movie? Given my poor description.

  • Can you describe the other monsters at all? Was there a "good" monster that saved the day? Was the film in english or was the English dubbed on top of the originally recorded language? Did you see it on tv or at a movie theater? More details the better.

    I don't recall a "good" monster per day. I think another monster was pink or orange with a round sort of bug like body. It was a vhs rental, but I think it was a bit newer than the movie suggested below. Yog. I feel like the electricity plant played a bigger role as a setting in the script.

Maybe it was The Super Inframan, a 1975 Hong Kong sci-fi action movie that has a cybernetically enhanced man fighting a group of monsters from within the earth, including a woman with laser-shooting eyeballs in her palms, skeleton ghosts, a demon princess, and a plant-human-hybrid monster that sprouts enormous tentacles at some point.

It features a scene with the tentacled plant monster electrocuting a jumpsuited guy by smashing him into some panels (23m30s).

  • This is it! Thanks a lot!

Perhaps you saw Yog: Monster from Outer Space (aka Space Amoeba). Released in the US in 1971, it features three monsterous creatures, including a green one with tentacles, terrorizing a Pacific island resort community.

The film tells the story of extraterrestrial amoeba-like aliens that highjack a probe and, after crash landing on a small South pacific atoll, create gigantic monsters from native lifeforms (a Kisslip cuttlefish, stone crab and Matamata turtle) with plans of conquering the Earth.

You may have seen the English dub, or the original Japanese.
