See How It All Started!

Restored to their Original Japanese Cuts!

The first 4 films of Daiei Studios monster series Gamera are unleashed and available on Blu-ray for the first time! Your favorite giant turtle returns to Earth leaving no fire-spitting scene behind. Beautifully captured to their lavish original cuts, viewers can experience four-times the thrills of this legend sci-fi classic like they have never seen before!

Presented in Japanese with English subtitles!

Gamera: The Giant Monster (1965)

The first entry of this Sci-Fi epic takes place midst the peak of the Cold War, as conflict between the East and West transforms into a nuclear disaster! This atomic explosion releases more than massive radiation, it awakens an ancient and long-forgotten legend of Gamera!

Gamera vs. Barugon (1966)

Once the fear of Tokyo, Gamera returns to Earth to save it from the malevolent monster Barugon who is able to freeze anything its path. This unholy battle between fire and ice challenges the survival of mankind while bringing them an incredible slam-bang, knock-down monster slug-fest!

Gamera vs. Gyaos (1967)

The third entry of this classic monster series continues when a volcanic eruption awakens Gyaos, a gigantic vampire-like bat who has a ravenous hunger for blood. Gyaos is Gamera s most popular foe, returning in four more films (not counting the stock footage in SUPER MONSTER). Can the fire-spitting terrapin Garmera defeat this nocturnal beast?

Gamera vs. Viras (1968)

The reign of terror continues when aliens take two boy scouts hostage to blackmail Gamera into aiding their invasion of Earth. When that plan fails the giant alien leader Viras battles the flying turtle in a duel to the death.

Thanks to Mill Creek for releasing these films on Bluray, but seriously guys, who did the transfer and encoding?
As mentioned by John Field and others in their reviews, the first film "Gammera The Giant Monster", has a series of light, yet noticeable lines throughout the film and add to that a few sound dropouts in the first few minutes. I found you could deminish the "lines" on the screen by watching in "cinema" mode, but that's really not the point. They shouldn't be there. And to top it off at 0:04-22 when an unknown bomber explodes there's a frame that's completely pixelated. It's a very poor job. I checked it on two bluray players and the computer and got the same pixelated frame each time. So I went to slow-mo and there it was. Ok, it's only one frame, but it should not have happened. The other 3 films are in colour and "OK" for the most part although "Gamera vs. Barugon" has an odd "jump" at 0:09-07. I was so looking forward to this release, and honestly I've been left feeling a little disappointed by it. 3 stars, it's "JUST OK".

Now if your familiar with the kaiju genre you should know who Gamera is. A giant turtle who released upon mankind thanks to a nuke waking him up. What followed are a series of films where he fights completely crazy looking monsters that Earth (or some kids). This is no Godfather or Citizen Kane in terms of quality but it gets the job done and can give you some good laughs. For the price of 15 bucks I recommend this to any fellow kaiju film lover, these films looking amazing in this bluray. Now if your new to Gamera I suggest the Trilogy which a far more serious take on the monster. ALSO I must warn you this is a bargain pack, each fil come in Japanese with English SUBS and no English DUB. Also this bluray contains no extras.

This blu-ray edition is good, great to see all these Gamera movies in their Japanese release form except for one thing - NO ENGLISH DUBBING! English subtitles yes, dubbing no. Everything else is as expected. The problem I believe is that the film company never released these in America completely so the English dubbing is only for those edited releases. So you have to watch the screen from beginning to end to understand the dialogue (unless you speak Japanese). But the clarity and sound quality is refreshing after seeing these movies in less worthy condition.

These are the first four Gamera films in their original Japanese releases, subtitled, no dubs and uncut. I am a fan of the Heisei trilogy of the late 1990's. Now I watched those movies first so I was already a Gamera fan before buying this set. I was well aware of their campiness, well more than campy, these films are absolute bonkers. The idea of Gamera is absurd. Think about it, giant turtle with tusks, breathes fire, and in the old films, he can fly through space. Not just fly, but fly IN SPACE! Not everyone can wrap their heads around that and it is one of the reasons why Gamera has enjoyed nothing more than cult status in the West compared to his more familiar rival from Toho. Supposedly Gamera is right up there in popularity in Japan second only to Godzilla. I will write a brief review for each of the four films

Gamera: Comparisons to the Godzilla films are inevitable in the first two Gamera films. The first film itself is not the best quality. The acting seemed phoned in. The black and white made Gamera look scarier, but he will look goofy soon enough and honestly, there isn't anything wrong with that. He is so much more lovable that way. The sets are amazing. Amazing. Like whatever money they did not spend on the suits and quality actors, they spent on the sets. Besides the FX scenes, the film would have been forgettable if not for it being the first Gamera film.

Gamera vs. Barugon: The main monster of this film is not to be confused with Baragon who first appeared in Toho's Frankenstien vs. Baragon, then Destroy All Monsters and finally Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant All-Out Monsters Attack. Basically they took the concept of Baragon, gave him a longer horn, shorter ears and changed the "o" to a "u" and they have another monster.

I just viewed the first film which is in black and white. The image has a distinct problem that cannot be ignored. Spread throughout the image is a series of light, yet noticeable lines. These lines run horizontal and appear as what looks like some kind of video noise. These do not go away. The other three movies which are in color, are fine. Anyone else notice these? If this was caused in the mastering process, it needs to be corrected.

Some good transfers of the earlier films, the colors were bright and really clear.As for the movies themselves, the first one is in black and white and is your standard Monster emerges in modern day flick. The rest are in color but the second one Gamera vs Bargon has a slightly more serious tone than the rest of the series. It's also the only one without a child as the lead or part of the main cast. The other two goes into the more familiar "friend of all children" stick these early films are known for.
