Prophecies of Nostradamus: Catastrophe 1999 is an epic disaster film released by Toho in 1974 as a thematic sequel to the highly successful Submersion of Japan (1973). Loosely based on the writings of Renaissance prophecist Michel de Nostredame, the film centers around the exploits of pediatrician and scientist Dr. Nishiyama, his family and co-workers. Dr. Nishiyama has a tough time convincing people of an impending environmental catastrophy until weird phenomena such as giant slugs and children with super-human capabilities start cropping up. Also featured are man-eating fruit bats, hippie suicide groups on motorbikes and exploding traffic jams along with the obligatory earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions and firings of nuclear missiles. The memorable soundtrack was composed by synth guru Isao Tomita.

Despite being the highest grossing domestic release of 1974 in Japan, the original 114 minute cut was quickly pulled out of theaters after complaints from an atom bomb survivors group. Several shorter cuts exist, including a US tv version by the title of The Last Days of Planet Earth. The original cut has never been released officially on video or dvd. The copy presented here originates from a timecoded master tape for an intended (but never released) vhs release. Along with the original soundtrack, there's also a comment track by Ted Johnson from

Haha, awesome!

I was on a trip with the friend of a friend, when we started to talk about his travels (He's a pretty old guy) and it turns out he was the radiation sick man in the cave who got his arm pulled off.

He never got to see the whole movie, so he'll be happy when he finds out I found it online.
