Noreiga describes how, in the first Japanese Godzilla films in the 1950s, the monster was associated with something dark and evil, but that gradually he changed from being a terrifying, dinosaur-like beast to being a rather sympathetic creature, more of a bumbling, gorilla-like person than a monster. As the films evolve, sympathy with Godzilla develops; he begins to have a personality, he has a son, and the Japanese attempt to understand and appease him, even to care for him when wounded in battle.

Huxley (2002) reviewed the ‘evidence’ in social care and established that, while there was a body of knowledge available, it was neither in the required EBP format nor was it widely known and implemented.

Horror and monster movies have long been correlated with times of recession and war. Hill (1958), Sontag (2001) and Carroll (1981) link such films with economic uncertainty and depression and with the expression of powerlessness and anxiety. Wells calls the history of horror films ‘essentially a history of anxiety in the twentieth century’ ( 2000: 3), illustrating the concerns and phobias arising in a society dominated by technological and economic determinism. He describes monsters as central to horror films as they enable exploration of the struggle between good and evil, the monster representing particular threats, fears and contradictions that disrupt and cause the breakdown of the status quo.
