Gamera The Super Monster: worst movie ever made?
on December 10, 2013
Gamera The Super Monster is just fantastically bad, with a trio of not very attractive female superheroes who transform into their costumed counterparts via a little dance move and some bad special effects. The special effects are dismal, really awful. Very bad cheap video effects. The combination of live action and puppets with bad 2D animation makes me want to barf. This is the bottom of the barrel. Only masochistic completists would want to own this DVD. It's excruciating. It's like a foreign language version of the worst 1970s kid's shows, put together on a way-too-low budget. By comparison, "Gamera vs. Zigra" is like "Gone With the Wind". That is how bad "The Super Monster" is. The GOOD news is, no matter how awful these movies are, SHOUT has done another outstanding job of presenting them: letterboxed and in the original Japanese. "Zigra" has some nice model-based SFX at the beginning, a space ship destroying a space base on the moon. It soon collapses into the Gamera-friend-of-children plot with weird aliens and absurd set designs. Ah well.
