Varan the Unbelievable 1962 DVD:

Varan the Unbelievable (Japanese: 大怪獣バラン, Hepburn: Daikaijū Baran, lit. 'Giant Monster Varan') is a 1958 Japanese kaiju film directed by Ishirō Honda, with special effects by Eiji Tsuburaya. Produced and distributed by Toho Co., Ltd, it stars Kōzō Nomura, Ayumi Sonoda, and Koreya Senda, with Haruo Nakajima as Varan. In the film, a reporter's investigation into two mysterious deaths in Japan's mountains leads to the discovery of a giant lake monster, wrecking its way towards civilization.

Two scholars are sent to a region known as the "Tibet of Japan" to study rare butterflies, but they are killed by a landslide triggered by a massive creature. Reporter Yuriko, sister to one of the late scholars, travels to Iwaya Village with scientist Kenji and another colleague to investigate the casualties, after the media pins the blame on a local spirit called “Baradagi”. The trio reach the village but are ordered by its priest to turn back before invoking Baradagi’s wrath. However, against the priest’s demands, the trio chase after a boy pursuing his dog in the forest.

After finding the boy, a giant reptilian monster, whom Kenji identifies as "Varan", surfaces from a nearby lake and attacks the village, crushing the priest in the process. Back in Tokyo, Dr. Sugimoto adds that Varan is a Varanopode, a creature that lived during the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods. Sugimoto is then asked by the Defense Agency to accompany them to the area. Varan is driven out of the lake with chemicals and attacks the military. Kenji and Yuriko are chased by the monster, but take refuge in a cave where Varan attempts to reach them. At Sugimoto’s suggestion, flares are used to distract Varan. However, Varan sprouts wings and flees into the sea.

While the Air Force and Navy search for Varan, Sugimoto joins Dr. Fujimura and other scientists to discuss how to defeat the monster. After attacking a fishing boat, the Air Force and Navy proceed to attack Varan. When Varan heads towards Haneda Airport, the military convince Fujimura to use his new explosive intended for dam construction. As the Defense Force bombards Varan, Kenji drives a truck full of explosives towards the beast. He escapes before the truck detonates beneath Varan but the explosives prove useless. After noticing Varan devouring flares, Sugimoto suggests attaching the explosives onto the flares in the hopes that Varan would swallow them. A helicopter drops the explosive-laced flares into Varan’s mouth, successfully imploding its organs. Varan retreats into the sea, and is killed by the final explosive.
