"Comet" Monster Summer 2018




It’s MONSTER SUMMER! 
The biggest, baddest and most fire-breathing summer ever! 



Starting on Memorial Day weekend and… All Summer Long… COMET TV is bringing the heat with Godzilla, Reptilicus, Mechagodzilla and even a few Astro-Monsters for good measure!

Every Sunday, Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day weekend, Monster Summer has it going on!





Typical summer activities generally include outdoor BBQs, trips to the beach, and taking dips in swimming pools, but Godzilla fans may choose to stay indoors this summer thanks to COMET’s “Monster Summer” event!

Beginning May 27, COMET will be airing a double-header of classic monster movies every Sunday throughout the summer, with the first film each night featuring your favourite giant lizard and the second starring some lesser-known beasts.





The Godzilla films featured run the gamut from his 1954 debut Gojira (see my post) to the silly Son of Godzilla, to the kaiju overload of Destroy All Monsters. As for the other monsters featured, you can look forward to campy classics like the King Kong/Frankenstein hybrid Konga, the Korean Godzilla equivalent Yongary, Monster from the Deep, and the legendary — thanks to Mystery Science Theater 3000 — Reptilicus.
