Editorial Reviews

From Shout! Factory come the final two films in the illustrious Gamera franchise: Gamera Vs. Zigra and Gamera: Super Monster! Witness twice the excitement as Gamera takes on the malevolent underwater alien creature Zigra and then revisits each of his deadliest foes one by one while trying to save the world! Both films feature newly remastered transfers in their original Japanese language as well as English dubs!

We get the same good extras that we did with the other releases, so I was pleased with that.

...for this "value" release of the weakest of the Gamera franchise.

No Gamera completist can do without these two films. I spent the summer beore last seeking through page after page of Japanese Amazon listings trying to find an affordable edition of the original Gamera films to no avail.

SHOUT! Factory has earned a place in my heart for restoring a lost peice of my childhood in grand fashion and a great value.

The last of the Shout Factory Gamera films are now available - and the price is inexpensive - as was the budget for the 2 Gamera films
Gamera vs Zigra - has Gamera fighting a giant ship that turns into a large sea fish monster which talks. Really hammy stuff with children starring again..The Sandy Frank version wound up as an MST3K experiement .That being said..the English dubbing is the same found from the MST3K version, minus the water credit sequence but with the original Sea World intro..
So hold on to your Neptune Video VHS tapes still :)
Gamera SuperMonster - on an even lower budget - is about 95% stock footage of Gamera fighting all his foes from Barugon to Gyaos to Zigra..the new footage has him flying around ready to attack an evil spaceship. There are some superheroes in this. The dubbing in this is awful too mispronouncing Gamera (Guh-Meera) all the way through..
This was released from Shout as an Elvira DVD.This time both Super Monster and Zigra are widescreen with very good - fantastic transfers...
Not a great pair in terms of film quality , but its the last Gamera movies and it's not expensive..Id like to think there will be some good bonus materials on this..Die-hard Gamera lovers like me will get it anyway for collections' sake; fence sitters may find this a little more difficult to decide to get it.
Supplements for both films are basically sill photos and some behind the scenes photos of Zigra
Shout has released some great stuff over the past year and being a monster movie fan I hope to see more from them in the future

I'll begin by saying that Gamera: The Super Monster was my first ever Gamera movie, so it holds a special place in my heart. This is the first time I have seen Zigra, and I don't think it's that bad. I thought Zigra was pretty cool, actually. And, by the way, Shout! did another great job on this release. Thank you once again. We get the same good extras that we did with the other releases, so I was pleased with that. So far, we have been lucky enough that this page hasn't been poisoned with a bunch of reviews by attention-starved internet nerds saying how bad these movies stunk. They are much better than most people give them credit for. Most tend to forget; these movies were aimed at children. Children are always the winners, and the adults are always dumb. That's the way it works. Get over it. For Super Monster, the spacewomen story is cool, and the title song, let's face it; if you didn't tap your feet at least once during that song, slap yourself and wake up. The acting isn't as bad as they say it is. There are several eye-roll moments(anything to do with a keyboard or the van), but it is a monster movie for kids. The ending is really sad. This movie has something special about it, though I don't know what. Anyway, I am very happy to own them. I've had this pack for eight days, and have watched each movie twice. These are great movies, if you can just tap in to your younger side, so to speak, and ignore all the trash that the critics say, because they all say the same thing: I have NO imagination!

My 9 year old son and I rented this DVD and loved it! The second movie, "Gamera: The Super Monster", was so cheesy and over the top with plot/story and we laughed so hard that he wanted to own it. If your expecting an award winner, than you shouldn't buy this (or any Japanese monster movie for that matter). It is much more innocent and worthy of my sons viewing time than most of the truly violent and demonic garbage Hollywood is producing today.

Even tho I enjoy watching Zigra you can feel that the series was in a fast decline by the time you watch Super Monster you will understand exactly what i mean. Video quality in Zigra is very good where as Super Monster seems like a copy of a VHS tape. Still your set won't be complete without it and should be watched at least once by Kaiju fans!

Gamera The Super Monster is just fantastically bad, with a trio of not very attractive female superheroes who transform into their costumed counterparts via a little dance move and some bad special effects. The special effects are dismal, really awful. Very bad cheap video effects. The combination of live action and puppets with bad 2D animation makes me want to barf. This is the bottom of the barrel. Only masochistic completists would want to own this DVD. It's excruciating. It's like a foreign language version of the worst 1970s kid's shows, put together on a way-too-low budget. By comparison, "Gamera vs. Zigra" is like "Gone With the Wind". That is how bad "The Super Monster" is. The GOOD news is, no matter how awful these movies are, SHOUT has done another outstanding job of presenting them: letterboxed and in the original Japanese. "Zigra" has some nice model-based SFX at the beginning, a space ship destroying a space base on the moon. It soon collapses into the Gamera-friend-of-children plot with weird aliens and absurd set designs. Ah well.
