Editorial Reviews

Scientists explore Mayan ruins, only to discover Caltiki, a growing blob-like menace! As it devours its victims flesh, Caltiki grows larger, more indestructible! What can stop this giant monster? Also included is -Attack of the Monsters-(aka. Gamera vs. Guiron). Giant turtle monster Gamera must save 2 boys who have been abducted to a strange planet inhabited by Guiron, a giant knife headed monster!

It has a great story line and a lot of substance.

I saw this movie as a young child many, many years ago, but never could find a copy as an adult.

Pretty decent print of CALTIKI, especially since my vhs copy is so dark as to render viewing almost impossible. Now the voice sync is off a fraction of a second during the last third of the movie, but loving this kind of schlock it's no big deal, at least not to me.
Fans of Euro-Trash cinema may identify Caltiki-crazed explorer Gerard Herter ( he's the guy who loses both his hand and his mind to Caltiki ) as a vetern of Spaghetti Westerns playing arrogant Prussian/German types in THE BIG GUNDOWN and ADIOS SABATA. He was also ( cast the same ) in the Steve Reeves adventure THE WHITE WARRIOR.
This is great Blob-style stuff in b&w from an era that produced so many enjoyable cheap thrills. The ending with Caltiki consuming the house, threatening the wife and child of the hero only to be destroyed by the Mexican army's flame-throwers is a very satisfactory example of classic B-movie Monster mayhem...it excited me when I saw it on tv in the early 60's and it brought back fond memories.
You can buy this...it is very watchable, other than the slight sync problem. The disc does not skip or freeze. The image is a vast improvement over the vhs dupe I bought some 15 years ago.
Also, as a bonus is a version of ATTACK OF THE MONSTERS, the Gamera fan favorite also known as GAMERA VS. GUIRON (1969) in which two boys are taken captive by alien space babes. It's a kid's film and is in color, and though the color isn't sharp and pristine, it's very acceptable and the little tykes in your household will love it...All in all, a very good double-bill buy!
Both films are in full screen.
I'm happy with this purchase.

p.s.....just a reminder that the soundtrack to CALTIKI is available on cd through a company called SCREEN ARCHIVES. Check out their website if interested.

I saw this on TV in the 1960s, when I was about 5 years old. It gave me horrendous nightmares. I rented a copy of it not long ago, expecting to laugh at the cheesiness of the special fx and my childhood gullibility. Instead, I found myself understanding why it stayed with me all these years -- the special effects are eerie and still frightening, and the premise was at least as plausible as any monster movie premise gets. It was a fun trip down memory lane.

Caltiki is an old campy horror flick that my younger brother told me about about 45 years ago and actually scared me so much that I was afraid to see it - until now. I had a big laugh when I saw it. The movie's a lot of fun and the quality of the DVD is great considering the age of the movie and the fact that it is so hard to find. It brought back great memories of a simpler time and my dear brother.

I remember seeing this movie when I was a child around 11 years old and I tell you this movie scared me to death.
It has been in the back of my mind for years and I have always wondered about seeing it again because of course it won't be played anywhere now.
I am so thankful for the internet, Amazon, etc... to allow people like me to be able to obtain obscure movies like this- to relive it. Even if now I see it, I would cringe! But I have to get it now!

This is not a studio released copy it is a DVD-R with a sticker type label.
I have no clue how this got on Amazon since I have always known them to be a reputable company that do not sell questionable material.
The quality is bad and the dialog sound to actual mouth movements sync is way off.
I am going to return it.

I first saw CALTIKI THE IMMORTAL MONSTER as a wide-eyed toddler. I watched in horror as the globular monster went on it's rampage! Today, about a million years later, I re-watched CALTIKI as an adult. I must say, that despite the hokey dialogue and hilarious dubbing, the monster itself is still quite impressive. Of course, it is cheeez-tastic, but that only adds to the overall fun. If you love monster movies, especially single-celled blob movies, then you can't go wrong w/ CAL'! Watch for the de-faced scuba diver, de-fleshed arm, and house-demolishing finale sequences! Great 50s stuff!...

This is a review of the Italian version from a distributor named DaaVeeDee, which more than once, has stepped up to the plate and knocked it out of the park. I don't know if I should be angry that this took so long to find, or elated at the picture quality which can bring tears to your eyes. I was surprized to find that the disc runs on at least one of my NTSC players. It will fill your screen except for a moderate thickness band on the right side and a sliver on the bottom; if it is not the exact ratio it should be, it is very close. Contrast and sharpness are very good indeed and I can't imagine this material looking much better. As good a "blob" movie as there is with a better storyline then most, if you didn't know who Mario Bava was before, you will now. Look for the European cover with the close-up on the left and the woman on the right. Bravo DaaVeeDee! CLARIFICATION: I have since discovered, and purchased another version of this film. Reddish cover, green lettering, hand at top with reclining woman at bottom. Distributor names are Prestivo and Seven. Both reviews will remain in these pages for reasons which I hope will become evident.
