"The world is amazed by Godzilla and Rodan, but it will be knocked for a ghoul by Varan!"
Right off the bat: what the hell does that tagline even mean? Knocked for a ghoul? Huh?
Whatever. What can you really expect from a generic Godzilla ripoff when your monster looks like this?
Let's narrate that scene. For fun, whenever you read the name of the film's titular character, draw the pronunciation out a bit, like "Varaaaaaaan, the unnnnnbelieeeeeeeeevable!"
EXT. JAPANESE HARBOR - DAY
Sounds of SCREAMING as VARAN THE UNBELIEVABLE emerges from the cold water.
AGGGGGHHH! It's... Varan the Unbelievable! I... I can't believe him!
It looks like some kind of flying squirrel.
BUT HE'S GOT A LIZARD FAAAAACE!!!!
I still say squirrel.
They are eaten by the Varan the Unbelievable.

Anyways, on to the trailer trash:
It seems like whoever edited that trailer was aware how silly Varan looked, and made sure not to show more than the top of his head or a single foot at a time.
"So AWESOME it will shock you to the core!"
