Added DiffLines:

* DigitalDestruction: The Media Blasters reconstruction of AIP's cut is a half-digested, poor representation of the theatrical cut. All of the exclusive footage is missing (because Toho doesn't seem to have them on hand in 'scope for some ''bizarre'' reason), the location titles are badly recreated, several lines are missing, and the AIP logo at the end is absent among other oddities. This is mostly because Media Blasters had to work off of the atrocious '80s UPA video master of the film, however. The earthquake ending was also only available in LD quality for some reason.

* RevisedEnding: Originally, the film was intended to have 2 different endings depending on where the film was distributed. The main ending that the film has today was meant to ONLY be shown in Japan. The second ending, which was intended for the U.S., involved have Oodako (the Giant Octopus from ''Film/KingKongVsGodzilla'') appear shortly after Frankenstein kills Baragon and [[AssPull would have been the one to kill Frankenstein by pulling the giant into the water and drowning him]]. However, the ending was consider more anti-climactic than the actual ending, and so it was cut in favor of the ending now.

Meanwhile, offshore, an oil rig is struck by what is believed to be an earthquake, but one of the surviving workers sees something monstrous moving underground. Later on, people and animals start disappearing all over the Japanese countryside, and a small village is soon attacked. Frankenstein is initially blamed for these disasters, and the JSDF begins hunting Frankentsein throughout the forests of Japan. Meanwhile, when the scientists go looking for Frankenstein to try and prove his innocence. They are attacked by the subterrarian monster Baragon, a dinosaur that has survived underground. The JSDF stop attacking Frankenstein after the true culprit is revealed, and Frankenstein soon engages Baragon in battle, eventually killing the monster after the forest has been set on fire. In the international version, Frankenstein then attacks a giant octopus after defeating Baragon, but he is overpowered and dragged into the ocean, his fight with Baragon having weakened him. In the Japanese and American versions, Frankenstein falls victim to an earthquake when the ground collapses beneath him and he is swallowed by the Earth.
