Editorial Reviews

Gamera returns to take on not one, but two, of his greatest foes in this exclusive double feature from Shout! Factory. Twice the terror! Twice the destruction! Twice the fire-breathing action! Both features include the original Japanese language tracks as two English dubs: including the infamous Sandy Frank version of Gamera Vs. Guiron.

Okay folks, Neither one of these movies are worthy of any awards or critical praise. Not even by monster standards. But I do like what they did with this dvd. This is a one sided disc not a flipper. That's the first good thing. Another good thing is IT HAS ENGLISH DUBS! YES, THAT IS A GOOD THING! NOT A BAD THING! But you purists don't have to worry. Both movies are presented with Japanese language tracks in vibrant color in the 2:35.1 widescreen aspect ratio. Back to the English dubs. Unless you go to set-up and specifically select the English dub the movie automatically plays the Japanese version. So I don't see the validity of giving this dvd a bad review because of the available options to hear the movies in english. Gamera vs Jiger aka Gamera vs Monster X the second of the two has only one English dub. Take it or leave it. Gamera vs Guiron has two. I forget which number choice is which, but if you select a dub and the voice acting is absolutely dreadful you'll know you got the Sandy Frank version. Here's probably the biggest reason I like this dvd so much. Before this dvd came out you had the choice of either getting the AIP version (the superior dub) of this on dvd with the Space Gyaos getting sliced up edited out, under the alternate title ATTACK OF THE MONSTERS, not to be confused with WAR OF THE MONSTERS, the alternate title for GAMERA vs BARUGON (pronounced barooo-gon) not to be confused with Toho's Baragon (pronounced..well, baragon) ORRRRR, the unedited yet so horrible to listen to Sandy Frank version. This is what the makers of this dvd did to correct that problem. You can select the AIP voice track. When that Gyaos slice scene comes up you'll just briefly hear the Sandy Frank dub. Then it reverts back to the AIP. In closing, a quick assessment of both movies. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the double features! August 13, 2010
This set will be a terrific double feature. "Vs Guiron" is a classic and "vs Jiger" is a great film and Jiger is one EVIL effin' monster, much more so than Gyaos or Guiron, don't let his dull brutish appearance fool you. It features one of the most horrific scenes in the Gamera films - where Gamera lays dying, bled white on the shore.

That used to utterly freak me out as a kid. If he was flame blasted or had his arms lasered off that was one thing, but to see him comatose and helpless really unnerved me as a little guy. Still does, too.

The trouble in paradise regarding these excellent Gamera releases is that SHOUT! Factory have combined two great films in one package and left the rather weak "vs Zigra" and "Supermonster" for the third double feature. SHOUT! Factory can count on my $17.49 for the last release, whenever that will be, I hope the fans won't penalize them for their poor choice and leave it unbought.

"Messages from outer space?"
That's the premise behind Gamera VS. Guiron, an unabashed children's movie about a space ship landing on Earth. Two boys hijack this space ship and take off with Gamera in hot pursuit (apparently, besides being a friend to children, Gamera is also psychic and knows when they're in trouble). They land on a planet just in time to witness a knife-headed monster hack another monster into pieces, literally. The planet is called Terra and is a twin to Earth, occupying the exact opposite orbital position as Earth, which explains why it's never been seen (an idea that's been used before). The last remaining inhabitants are two women, desperate to get to Earth; will the two boys help them?
Wonderfully absurd, inconsequential fluff, the two greatest revelations in this film is that Gamera knows gymnastics and the villains of this piece aren't the monsters but the two women (with gruesome appetites)!
Not bad, as Gamera films go, but I could have done without the "stop wars" message tacked onto the end.

The second feature has Gamera battling a different monster: Jiger. Jiger is particularly vicious, able to shoot quills, an energy beam; she also has a special suction feature and a secret weapon: the ability of injecting her victim with an egg. This plot device allows 2 boys to enter Gamera and kill the baby Jiger inside....while Gamera lies comatose on a beach, quietly turning a whiter shade of pale. It's a tossup as to which scene is the creepiest; this one or the sight of Gamera shoving telephone poles into his ears!
I can do without the weird theme song, but that aside, two enjoyable entries in this series. A keeper.

Shout Factory continues the Gamera series with 2 more in this double feature DVD
At this point in the Gamera series, the movies began to decline and rely heavily on the use of children as the main focus. With lots of kids, children singing the Gamera song, goofy music Gamera doing some weird tricks against his foes,the movies got odder and odder...
This set is of no exception - 2 more 'way out there' Gamera movies coming up !
Gamera vs. Guiron aka Guillon aka Attack of the Monsters has Gamera fighting off a giant knife monster on the Planet Terra. 2 kids accidentally fly out into space & land on this planet where 2 alien ladies want to eat their brains. On this planet is also a species of Space Gyaos (one of which gets hacked by Guiron which is cut in several prints)
There are many transfers to this title such as the AIP version was used by Alpha and was a cut crummy transfer while on VHS The Celebrity Video version (Sandy Frank version) was uncut and used by Mystery Science Theater 3000. The dubbing is atrocious in my opinion. So was the hammy music. Listen for the kid (Akio) going on throughout the film about traffic accidents. And he gets his head shaved in this too. And of course there is the character "KornChan" (office Kondo) which on the MST version he's Cornjob by Joel & the Bots. He's in Gamera vs. Jiger too.
Recently, various websites are reporting that the DVD for Gamera vs Guiron will contain 2 English language versions (Sandy Frank & The AIP version) + A Japanese version will be included.
After watching it - the Sandy Frank dub can be heard during the AIP cut of the film where Guiron is chopping Space Gyaos into pieces. This was originally cut from the AIP due to its content.
