Gamera



Attack Of The Monsters (U.S. Version)

(1969)
$19.99 - Free Shipping In The USA
aka's: Gamera Tai Daikaijū Giron/Gamera vs. Guiron, Giant Evil Monster
Three children, two boys and a girl, stumble upon a flying saucer. The boys both step into the ship without hesitating and are whisked away to a planet in Earth's orbit, but on the exact opposite side of the Sun. Inhabiting this planet are two women (named Barbella and Flobella) who hypnotize the children to discover they fantasize mainly about Gamera, their favorite super turtle. It is later revealed that the spacewomen simply want to eat the brains of the two kids. Back home, no one will believe the little girl's story of alien abduction, not even Officer Kondo. Finally, Gamera rescues the children while fighting Guiron, a monster with a giant knife-like head which can also fire deadly cutting projectiles. After a fierce battle, Gamera eventually kills Guiron while doing gymnastics on a parallel bar and then finally is able to take the children back home. Stars Nobuhiro Kajima, Miyuki Akiyama, Christopher Murphy and Edith Hanson. This is the English language version of Gamera vs. Guiron (also available here at SSV).

This version includes the very rare knife cutting battle between the monsters Guiron and Gayos, which was cut from the original A.I.P. print due to the violent nature of the sequence.

aka's: Gamera Tai Uchu Kaijū Bairasu/Gamera vs. Viras/Gamera vs. Outer Space Monster Viras
Gamera the Flying Turtle falls under the control of evil aliens, but two children are able to free him so he can destroy the alien ship and to fight the aliens' giant monster squid, Viras. This is the English language version of Gamera vs. Viras (also available here at SSV). Stars Kojiro Hongo, Tōru Takatsuka and Kurl Crane.

The character of boy scout Jim Morgan in this film was then 11-year old Carl Craig's (aka Kurl Crane) only acting job. But even though he had no ambition to become an actor, he nevertheless became a celebrity to friends and fellow children in Japan. He later became a U.S. Air Force pilot (which he had always dreamed of becoming) and later a U.S. Customs Service pilot. He was also an advisor on the staff of then U.S. President George Bush. But Carl still fondly remembers his one acting role to this day and is kind enough to share his memories of the film with his many fans at Japanese monster (kaiju eiga) conventions.

In the future of 1985, a moonbase is destroyed by an undersea spaceship called Zigra, which has a cluster of colored balls on its head. Later, at Sea World, dolphins are dying mysteriously. The Zigra ship then kidnaps two men and two children and starts causing earthquakes. The two captured six-year-olds somehow manage to outwit the Zigra X Woman (Eiko Yanami) and help their incapacitated fathers escape. Later, the Zigra X Woman, who can use her eyes to put people into comas, chases them all over Sea World but can't seem to catch them. Finally, Gamera shows up and battles Zigra, who has now revealed its true form, a giant deadly space shark. Stars Koji Fujiyama, Daigo Inoue, Reiko Kasahara and Arlene and Gloria Zoellner.

Gamera vs. Zigra was the only classic Gamera film not released in the U.S. until the advent of home video. All the previous Gamera films had been picked up for theatrical distribution or for television. Gamera vs. Zigra first appeared in the U.S. back in 1987, via video tape, long after its Japanese release.

NOTE: This was to be the last Gamera film made just Before the Daiei Motion Picture Film Company officially went bankrupt in 1971 despite a minor co-op formed with the Nikkatsu Motion Picture Company called Dai-Nichi Eiga. The studio had plans to produce more Gamera films and the next in line for production (slated for a 1972 release) was a film called Gamera vs. Garasharp. Unfortunately, the film never made it out of its pre-production stage. A monster costume for Garasharp was in fact constructed, but never used. All that remains concerning this film are these rare production photos below.
