GAMERA vs. GUIRON: 2 kids (one American & one Japanese) discover a spaceship en route to Earth while searching the stars with their telescope. It conveniently lands nearby and the tykes 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. The planet has been overrun by deep-space cousins of the batty Gyaos monsters, so the Terrans created 'Guiron,' a giant fish/dog guardian creature, with a huge knife-shaped head and built in ninja throwing stars. Whoa! Watch out, Gamera!! Guiron may seem to have Gamera beaten by a nose, but we all know that nothing can keep our gymnastic turtle hero down for the count! And as for those gorgeous gals... be careful boys! Sure, those Terran tarts seem warm & friendly - AT FIRST! - but watch out, because those supposedly groovy space babes are actually brain-hungry cannibals! Yikes!
GAMERA vs. JIGER: My personal all-time favorite entry in the entire series. Scientists intent on delivering a mysterious statue discovered on exotic Wester Island to the specially-constructed display at the newly-opened World Expo in Japan.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
