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!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! Kudos to SHOUT! factory ... December 20, 2010
...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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good price..not the best Gamera films..still overall fun December 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
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

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining if you have a open mind March 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! November 28, 2012
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Creatures of the Earth, surrender at once!" August 5, 2011
By Einsatz
Verified Purchase
Nostalgia is the main driving force with the Gamera series; they reach people on an emotional level. They were never meant to be anything more than entertainment for children (and adults who remember the series fondly). Allowances will always be made for things with sentimental value. I do not fault these movies for serving their purpose. I know there are plenty of things to pick apart, from production values to acting and more, but quality has different meanings in different circumstances.

I was greatly amused by both films and even though Gamera: the Super Monster was basically just Gamera's greatest hits, the interlocking story accommodated them quite well. I liked the 3 space women with their ear tugs and snazzy uniforms and magical calisthenics. Why they were living here wasn't exactly clear but they were a great source of aid to the little boy with a turtle fascination. And yes, they kept playing the Gamera theme song throughout (admittedly, it isn't the greatest song ever....that would be Mothra's theme). This is good harmless fun (name one thing better than gigantic rubbery monsters beating the crap out of each other).
As for Gamera Vs. Zigra, it costarred a uniquely designed monster that conveniently grew due to our water pressure. Zigra went from one of Carmen Miranda's daintier hats to a huge shark-thing. He/It also had a woman to do its evil bidding. While most of the adults were incapacitated, this evil woman was out to kill 2 witnesses/kids. Yes, death threats were leveled repeatedly at the 2 kids who had no trouble evading the assassin's grasp (slapstick solutions to soften the idea of a homicidal maniac terrorizing 2 kids). They even managed to throw in a lecture on pollution!
