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 ›

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.

Shout Factory continues the Gamera series with 2 more in this double feature DVD
At this point in the Gamera series, the movies began to decline and rely heavily on the use of children as the main focus. With lots of kids, children singing the Gamera song, goofy music Gamera doing some weird tricks against his foes,the movies got odder and odder...
This set is of no exception - 2 more 'way out there' Gamera movies coming up !
Gamera vs. Guiron aka Guillon aka Attack of the Monsters has Gamera fighting off a giant knife monster on the Planet Terra. 2 kids accidentally fly out into space & land on this planet where 2 alien ladies want to eat their brains. On this planet is also a species of Space Gyaos (one of which gets hacked by Guiron which is cut in several prints)
There are many transfers to this title such as the AIP version was used by Alpha and was a cut crummy transfer while on VHS The Celebrity Video version (Sandy Frank version) was uncut and used by Mystery Science Theater 3000. The dubbing is atrocious in my opinion. So was the hammy music. Listen for the kid (Akio) going on throughout the film about traffic accidents. And he gets his head shaved in this too. And of course there is the character "KornChan" (office Kondo) which on the MST version he's Cornjob by Joel & the Bots. He's in Gamera vs. Jiger too.
Recently, various websites are reporting that the DVD for Gamera vs Guiron will contain 2 English language versions (Sandy Frank & The AIP version) + A Japanese version will be included.
After watching it - the Sandy Frank dub can be heard during the AIP cut of the film where Guiron is chopping Space Gyaos into pieces. This was originally cut from the AIP due to its content.
