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 ›

"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.

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.

Gorgeous-looking copies of both movies include not only the beloved AIP English dubs we grew up with as kids, but the notoriously silly Sandy Frank dubs as well, which were created for the films when they made their first go-round on home video in the glory days of VHS. Film Purists can also watch 'em both in their native Japanese language with English subtitles if they so choose. Both features are finally available here in their proper aspect ration and neither has been tampered with. These flicks are a real treat to watch in these wonderful new releases, and it is long overdue. For decades, Gamera fans have had to suffer with heavily-edited, faded, grainy-looking, garbly-sounding Public Domain copies of these terrific old giant monster movies. Well, no more! Bless you Shout!Factory for a wonderful job restoring these neat films to their original format, and in beautiful, brightly colored & clean sounding, razor sharp editions! These DVDs have been available for some time now, so picking them up used means you can afford to collect the entire Showa-era Gamera film collection for cheap! If you've been waiting, then wait no longer! If you've never had the surreal pleasure of watching an old school Gamera movie then you're in for a trippy treat, times two!!

Gamera vs. Guiron is a goofy space adventure wherein 2 kids (one American & one Japanese) discover a spaceship en route to Earth while searching the stars with their telescope. It lands nearby (of course) and the kids climb on board to investigate. Before you can say "Holy Hijacking!" they're whisked away through galactic space, to a barren, icy planetoid called 'Terra' which we are told sits directly on the opposite side of the sun from Earth. On all of Terra, only two female inhabitants remain.
