My Review:
I think that this is a good collection of monster movies, with a majority of them being the early Gamera movies.
The video and audio quality on the discs are... passible. All videos are in fullscreen format, which usually means a lot of cropping. There is a lot of pixelation and compression on the movies, possibly due to cramming over four hours of movie content onto each disc, and all discs are single sided, so the quality is not much better than the other DVD releases from other companies. But, for around $8, the quality is what you get for your money.
The DVDs menus are okay. They are a little plain, but fine. Each movie contains eight chapters, and all of the chapters are named, instead of other releases where there would be only six chapters, and they would be lazily labled with numbers one through six.

I overall think the set is good. The set includes Gamera vs. Monster X, Gamera vs. Gaos, Yongary Monster from the Deep, Warning from Space, Destroy all Planets, War of the Monsters, Gammera the Invincible, The Giant Gila Monster, and Gappa. It's a cool set!!

If you like campy old monster flicks, look no further. At an astoundingly good price, classic monsters w/ classic bad everything; special effects, acting, writing, plot lines; whatever it takes to make a good movie, this collection doesn't have it- EXCEPT!!! Entertainment Value! YOU HAVE TO SEE::: The Rainbow of Doom- The Origin of Gamera- and America's contender in the Silly Monster Derby, Giant Gila Monster. ***Kid Friendly- Children wake up; not screaming, but laughing; after falling asleep to this Monsterama!

Might be nice...
They do mention a couple of titles on the cover if you look at the enlarged image. I would hazard a guess that this is the OLD Gamera films all lumped together. At $9.98, you can bet that there will be no remastering either...
