Goshzilla was started in early 2001 (if you don't count the self-referential review the month before). Its origins were rooted in an interest several years prior for findings and enjoying the worst and most obscure movies possible. At the time, Amazon, reel.com, and ebay were earlier incarnations, and sourcing out these types wasn't as easy as it is today. You can buy Cannibal Holocaust at FYE now, so the thrill is gone to a degree, but that just makes the challenge all the more exciting.
After a few reviews of n'th generation VHS bootlegs and some early DVD releases, life took over. Eight years later we decided to resurrect the domain and continue with some more reviews of mostly movies and games. The site design stayed the same, but a database was put into the back end so it would be a little easier. This was kept up for a little over a year fairly regularly, and then sporatically over the next few.
Finally it was time to update the look of the site, which is what you see now. Holding onto the old design for all the years was done for sentimental reasons, but it needed a change, and a better flow. Instead of purely concentrating on movies, we wanted to cover things we find interesting. We want to uncover hidden gems in everyday life, since that's where the challenge now lies.Staff
