This review is for the Shout Factory Double Feature of Gamera vs. Gyaos and Gamera vs. Viras
Shout Factory has decided to pair up the Gamera series for the rest of the Showa series. There could be a few reasons. The later Gamera movies to me & many others aren't as good as Gamera,Barugon & Gyaos & feel they might not sell as well if sold separately. Gamera vs. Viras is considered inferior to Gamera vs. Gyaos as the series dwindled with that very film. Would Viras have the same sales as the others ? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe Shout Factory said maybe not. This thinking might be understandable however I think most die hard Gamera fans would buy them up anyway with causal fans passing on the ones they did not like. I will say that a lot of us bought the Celebrity Video VHS of them as well as the Neptune Media versions. Another reason could be to save time and money. The idea being lets not let the fans wait that long for all of the Gamera movies as single discs which saves time as well as saving a few dollars.2 movies on a disc with one packaging. I expect the quality to be the same as the rest of the Shout Factory Gamera series.
Whatever the reasoning is the idea of 2 Gamera movies ala MGM Midnight Movie double features isn't that bad to me. I dont care as long as the quality is up to the standards.
For those who haven't seen these movies - Gamera vs. Gyaos & Gamera vs. Viras - I will first mention Gyaos is a far better movie than Viras
GAMERA VS. GYAOS (AKA GAOS )Has Gamera fighting a giant bat like monster that spits out laser beams that slice things (& people) This is a very wild Gamera movie with lots of fighting & some pretty bloody (for a Gamera movie) with pink blood spurting around. Gyaos is /was Daiei's answer to Toho's Rodan I would guess.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for Gamera fans, but lacking in extras. March 5, 2011
By dddfan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Shout Factory continues their excellent release of the Gamera series with the next installments: Gamera vs Gyaos and Gamera vs Viras. Gamera vs Gyaos is arguably the best of the Gamera films and Gyaso would go on to become Gamera's main nemesis in the 90's Gamera trilogy (highly recommended for Gamera fans). Gamera vs Viras is where the series began to slide downhill a bit. Gamera battles a monster that looks like a cross between a squid and a silver banana (seriously!). About 15 min of the film is stock footage of the aliens scanning Gamera's memory and watching footage from the first two films.

Anyway, as usual the dvd looks absolutely stunning in its widscreen HD presentation and way better than the crappy Alpha Video transfers from the early 2000's. One thing I found a bit disappointing was the lack of extras on this and the Gamera vs Guiron/Jiger disc. The first two Gamera dvds had great extras (audio commentary by film historians, a couple of featurettes on the first disc and color booklets in the package. On these the only extras you get are publicity galleries(which is pretty cool) and the english dubs(which I don't really think is a special feature), but whatever. Another thing I was disappointed about was the booklet that came with Gamera vs Barugon had a bio and anatomy profile of Barugon. I loved it and bought these discs thinking they would have the same.

Wrong! The monster anatomies are in the still galleries on the discs, but with no biographies, just a look at their internal organs and labeling of the their body parts. Unfortunately the on screen print is so small that you usually can't read them, even when zooming in whith your TV. Gyaos' anatomy was the only one I could read clearly.

Despite the lack of extras, I'm still glad to own these films the way they were meant to be seen. A great buy for diehard Gamera fans. Thanks Shout!

Gamera vs Gyaos i would say is my 3rd favorite movie thus far. It really focused on the monsters and Gamera and Gyaos really fought it out. Gamera vs Viras though i thought wasn't that great. Now don't get me wrong Gamera is awesome but Viras was kinda of a trash monster. I didn't like it to much. But its still a good buy two Gamera movies for the price of one! You got my vote

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Monster Action September 21, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Thanks to Amazon's amazing service I got this along with the other double feature of Guiron/Jiger in yesterday a day a before release date. The films themselves are going to be hit and miss with some people I happen to like Gamera vs Gyaos but I found Gamera vs Viras a little dull. What really shines on these discs is the picture quality. Shout Factory has once again outdone themselves for this release. This is the first time I've watched both films in quite awhile. In fact the last time I watched Gyaos was on the VHS tape from the late 80s and the last time I've watched Viras was on a bootleg tape I had gotten when they're looked like there was no hope of getting it in the states. I can't believe how clean and sharp the picture looked.

Another bonus is that these two feature the dubbed versions of the films with Gyaos having both it's AIP dubbing as well as it's "Sandy Frank" dubbing. Viras features it's "Destroy All Planets" dubb and for parts where there wasn't a dubbed line they switched over to the Japanese version. When they do this though they didn't have the subs going thankfully this was only a problem once and it was only for about five seconds max. Another issue with the dubb track was that the audio kept getting louder in some spots I assume this was from them switching over to the Japanese language and back again. Again it's only a minor problem.

So this release gets a 4 star rating for me actually I'd rate it about 4.5, the only reason it doesn't get a perfect five is because of the minor audio problem on Viras. So if you want so great Japanese monster action then look no further than the Gamera Double feature; featuring Gamera vs Gyaos and Gamera vs Viras.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical
If you are into the old 50's Scify and Monster movies you will like it. If you judge it by todays standards you could rate it as a comedy. I doubt kids of today would like it.

Double Feature on 1-disc
I hate those Double Feature on 1-disc, with no label on the single double-face disc too. This DVD has both features on the same side with a nice picture label.
