This review is for the Shout Factory Double Feature of Gamera vs. Gyaos and Gamera vs. Viras
Shout Factory has decided to pair up the Gamera series for the rest of the Showa series. There could be a few reasons. The later Gamera movies to me & many others aren't as good as Gamera,Barugon & Gyaos & feel they might not sell as well if sold separately. Gamera vs. Viras is considered inferior to Gamera vs. Gyaos as the series dwindled with that very film. Would Viras have the same sales as the others ? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe Shout Factory said maybe not. This thinking might be understandable however I think most die hard Gamera fans would buy them up anyway with causal fans passing on the ones they did not like. I will say that a lot of us bought the Celebrity Video VHS of them as well as the Neptune Media versions. Another reason could be to save time and money. The idea being lets not let the fans wait that long for all of the Gamera movies as single discs which saves time as well as saving a few dollars.2 movies on a disc with one packaging. I expect the quality to be the same as the rest of the Shout Factory Gamera series.
Whatever the reasoning is the idea of 2 Gamera movies ala MGM Midnight Movie double features isn't that bad to me. I dont care as long as the quality is up to the standards.
For those who haven't seen these movies - Gamera vs. Gyaos & Gamera vs. Viras - I will first mention Gyaos is a far better movie than Viras
GAMERA VS. GYAOS (AKA GAOS )Has Gamera fighting a giant bat like monster that spits out laser beams that slice things (& people) This is a very wild Gamera movie with lots of fighting & some pretty bloody (for a Gamera movie) with pink blood spurting around. Gyaos is /was Daiei's answer to Toho's Rodan I would guess.

Nice-looking copies of both films with the bonus of not only the original AIP English dubs, but also the wacked out Sandy Frank dub, too! Plus purists can watch 'em in their native Japanese with good quality subtitles. Films are in their proper aspect ration and have not been cut or otherwise tampered with. A real treat and long overdue. For decades fans had to suffer thru horrible public domain copies of these fun and unique monster movies. Well, no more! Thank you, Shout! Factory for wonderful job. These DVDs have been available for some time now, so picking them up lightly 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 for some bizarre & sad reason you've never seen these silly fun films then what are you waiting for?!? Gamera vs. Gyaos features his most famous foe, a supersonic ray spitting pteranodon/bat whatchamacallit. There's a Japanese Abbott & Costello wanna-be duo for comedy relief, Gamera visits an amusement park... and let's not forget Operation Whirlybird! Woot! This film is tons of crazy fun. The second feature, Gamera vs. Viras, has our tortugan tough guy squaring off against a bizarre intergalactic squid thingy. This film is the first to team up an American kid with the Japanese kid, in order to be more appealing to international audiences. Lots of trippy late-60's fun to be found here. And, truth be told, those aliens with the glowing eyes were pretty creepy, especially in the scene where the one guy has his arm torn off by a kid, then laughs and it flies back to him and he re-attaches it! Boy, talk about your nightmare fuel! LOL. 5 STARS for this swell double dip of Gamera.

Gamera in widescreen, dubbed, and japanese audio. Gamera vs Gyaos is one of the better showa Gamera films. It's about Gamera fighting a bat like monster called Gyaos, fx were good for its time. Remember seeing all the Gamera films as a kid, Gyaos was always my favorite. Gyaos has quite afew cool fight scenes, and was pretty violent for a monster film, to see it remaster and widescreen is a dream come true. Gamera vs Viras is when the series start to decline, two boys are kidnapped by aliens, then the aliens emerged into a giant squid Viras. Gamera vs Viras is not the best, but it has its moment, better then some of the later Gamera films. Gamera vs Gyaos is the ONLY reason I'm buying this! Will not buy the others!

Shout Factory continues their excellent release of the Gamera series with the next installments: Gamera vs Gyaos and Gamera vs Viras. Gamera vs Gyaos is arguably the best of the Gamera films and Gyaso would go on to become Gamera's main nemesis in the 90's Gamera trilogy (highly recommended for Gamera fans). Gamera vs Viras is where the series began to slide downhill a bit. Gamera battles a monster that looks like a cross between a squid and a silver banana (seriously!). About 15 min of the film is stock footage of the aliens scanning Gamera's memory and watching footage from the first two films.

Anyway, as usual the dvd looks absolutely stunning in its widscreen HD presentation and way better than the crappy Alpha Video transfers from the early 2000's. One thing I found a bit disappointing was the lack of extras on this and the Gamera vs Guiron/Jiger disc. The first two Gamera dvds had great extras (audio commentary by film historians, a couple of featurettes on the first disc and color booklets in the package. On these the only extras you get are publicity galleries(which is pretty cool) and the english dubs(which I don't really think is a special feature), but whatever. Another thing I was disappointed about was the booklet that came with Gamera vs Barugon had a bio and anatomy profile of Barugon. I loved it and bought these discs thinking they would have the same.

Wrong! The monster anatomies are in the still galleries on the discs, but with no biographies, just a look at their internal organs and labeling of the their body parts. Unfortunately the on screen print is so small that you usually can't read them, even when zooming in whith your TV. Gyaos' anatomy was the only one I could read clearly.

Despite the lack of extras, I'm still glad to own these films the way they were meant to be seen. A great buy for diehard Gamera fans. Thanks Shout!
