The heart of Frankenstein's monster is stolen from Dr. Frankenstein and taken by U-boat to Japan. When caught in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, it begins to grow and mutate. Several years later a disfigured wild-boy (Koji Furuhata) is discovered stealing peoples' livestock and eating a school's pet rabbit. Doctors Bowen (Nick Adams) and Togami (Kumi Mizuno) put the boy under surveillance. He then begins to grow at an enormous rate and eventually escapes his chains while losing a hand in the process, which survives and crawls around until it dies of malnutrition. Later, a reptilian-subterranean monster named Baragon (Haruo Nakajima) begins a rampage and the Frankenstein monster and the reptile face off. (Includes the original U.S. trailer).

One of the proposed titles for this film was Frankenstein vs. The Giant Devil Fish. In fact, one of the lobby photos features the title monster doing battle with a giant octopus. However, that scene was later deleted from the U.S. print. Ironically, the sequel, Furankenstein No Kaiju: Sanda Tai Gaira does feature a battle between Gaira, the Green Gargantua, and a giant octopus.

NOTE: This rare TV print from the 1970's includes all the Hiroshima bomb dropping references and extra special effects sequences which have been cut from all more recent editions of this film.

This is the 3rd and last film actor Nick Adams made in Japan, just prior to his death a year later. This incredibly rare film, for reasons unknown, was never released in the United States, and was considered lost for over 50 years.

TRIVIA: The scene in which Adams' character is caught in a bear trap was filmed on the final day of shooting. A real bear trap was used for the scene, with Adams' leg protected by a metal guard. However, when they began filming, Adams actually became stuck in the trap, which was chained down, and had to be given an axe to chop himself free, to escape being engulfed by the foam used to portray the Killing Bottle.

This film was a planned partnership between an American and Japanese studio. Nick Adams was quoted as saying, "It promotes good relations-particularly with this American. I get 25 percent of the action." He went on to describe his character in the film as "a Humphrey Bogart-type detective, who foils a plot to assassinate the Emperor of Japan." Months later, on August 17, a quote from Adams appeared in Barney Glazer's Star Gazer column in the South Pasadena Review writing, "Okay, Barney, fans have been waiting for the guy in 'The Killing Bottle'. I'm going to burn up the screen."

In an interview published in the Ohio's Akron Beacon Journal on January 8, 1967, Adams briefly commented, "'The Killing Bottle' is a spy thing. I hope lots of people see it, so maybe I can get my career moving again." Of course we now know how that turned out!
