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.

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.
Neptune Video had a great English language widescreen VHS version which this reviewer hopes was hoping that it be used for this DVD release. It isnt, so keep your tapes :)
Gamera vs. Jiger aka Monster X has a monster coming to life to destroy Expo 70 when a statue is taken off sacred ground releasing this monster. This monster is a quadruped that can fly, float , spit spears..its like something from a Johnny Sokko movie. Retromedia released the AIP version on DVD and it was just OK - some of us were thankful that someone finally released it to home video. I expect (& we do get) a MUCH better transfer from Shout on this title. This DVD will have the AIP English language version along with the Japanese version.
Thanks again Shout for getting the rights to genre titles that many Gamera and Kaiju fans have waited a long time for
Not only do we get Japanese and English language versions but we also get some very sharp clean transfers for all the titles..the widescreen transfers are excellent. You wont find a cleaner transfer on any DVD anywhere, anytime except of course the Japanese DVDs.
Also the titles for both English dubs are the Japanese title of the movie..
