Loren Coleman remembers Half Human


Greetings from Chicago! Akira Takarada, star of Toho's 1955 science fiction film Half Human, enjoys sightseeing in Chicago during G-FEST 2010. Photo by Brett Homenick.

Fellow G-fan Mark Matzke sent me a link to noted cryptozoologist Loren Coleman's blog. I interviewed Mr. Coleman in 2004 for G-FAN magazine on the subject of Half Human. The Toho film inspired him to research Bigfoot and other curiosities of nature. It was a fascinating backstory, and I wanted Mr. Coleman to share it with Toho fans in the pages of G-FAN.

Eight years later, I'm happy to say that Mr. Coleman remembers the interview fondly and mentions it in a recent blog post about the movie Half Human. Give the entry a look for yourself. Suffice it to say, I was pleasantly surprised to find that, after so many years, he remembers the interview so well.

Incidentally, Half Human star Akira Takarada will be appearing at G-FEST in Chicago, July 13-15. Be sure to drop by and say hi!
