Half Human is a 1955 Japanese film that was directed by Ishirō Honda. This was his second Kaiju film after directing the first Godzilla film. He go on to make many more monster films for Toho, like Godzilla Rides Again, Rodan, The Mysterians, Mothra, The Human Vapor and plenty of others. Special effect wiz Eiji Tsuburaya and producer Tomoyuki Tanaka worked with Honda on Godzilla and they teamed up again for this film. They would go on to create a lot more great Toho SF and monster films over the next several years.
According to Wikipedia Japan, the film has been removed from circulation due to the original version depicting the inhabitants of the remote village similar to the Ainu people as being deformed from generations of inbreeding as well as showing backwards and violent behaviour. However, no such reference is made in the film's dialogue, but for this reason broadcasters and media publishing companies have refrained from showing it. - Wikipedia page for the movie.
The movie is about a group of college students that go on a skinning holiday. A couple of them get lost and are murdered. The find the bodies and it looks like a big animal attacked them. The movie moves along and they eventually encounter the monster. There's plenty of death along the way and the movie ends sadly for the big guy.
There's two versions of the film, the 1955 Japanese film running 94 minutes and the 1958 US version which runs 64 minutes. The 1958 nationwide U.S. release of this film took sequences of Jujin Yuki Otoko and added extensive new scenes starring John Carradine and featuring Morris Ankrum and two lesser-known American actors, and the entire soundtrack was replaced with American stock music cues, sound-effects, and voice-over narration by Carradine replacing all dialogue in the Japanese scenes. Toho's costume for the snowman's son was even imported by the new film's makers and used in a scene where the creature has supposedly just been autopsied by Ankrum and is seen lying on an operating table. Including the extensive American footage, this version runs only 63 minutes in total. - Wikipedia page from the movie.
Someone lent me a bootleg of the two films on DVDr. There is no official Japanese DVD and the US version only came out on a VHS tape. There are 5 copies of the tape on Amazon starting at $48.98. The bootleg DVDr doesn't look as bad as it might but it's all a bit fuzzy. The Japanese film is a much better film, as you might expect, and even for a monster in the ski lodge type story it was ok. I could see where they didn't treat the natives well. It still would be worth having a nice restored DVD of the Japanese film. Here's a couple of pictures of the Abominable Snowman meeting Godzilla on the Toho Studio Lot.
