"Phantom From 10,000 Leagues
Another cult classic of 50's science fiction warning of the perils of unchecked scientific progress. The titular creature stands guard over a submerged uranium deposit and messily does away with anyone who gets too close to it.
1956 - Black & White - Not Rated - Approx. 72 mins.
Giant Gila Monster
Teenage mechanic Chase Winstead and his friends are only interested in having a groovy time, but there's a giant lizard cramping their style - and eating them. The rear-projection gila monster is decidedly low-tech, and Chase's musical numbers will leave your mouth agape, but it all comes together in a wonderfully schlocky package.
1959 - Black & White - Not Rated - Approx. 74 mins.
Eegah (yes, that's his name) meets and falls in love with pretty young Roxy Miller played by Marilyn (I'm-too-old-to be-playing-a-teenager) Manning. The fact that Arch Hall Jr. plays Roxy's boyfriend and Arch Hall Sr. plays her father adds to both the confusion and the fun. Utterly hilarious.
1963 - Color - Not Rated - Approx. 93 mins.
The Monster Maker
Horror mainstay J. Carrol Naish plays mad scientist Dr. Igor Markoff. The good doctor has eyes for Patricia Lawrence, but she has the good taste not to reciprocate his feelings. Markoff then injects Patricia's concert pianist father Anthony with a serum that hideously deforms his hands and face. Since only Markoff can cure Anthony, Patricia will have to love him now, won't she? Classic mad scientist logic in this gem from Hollywood's golden age of horror.
1944 - Black & White - Not Rated - Approx. 65 mins.
Attack Of The Giant Leeches
B-Movie mogul Roger Corman served as executive producer on this slimy little opus. That old chestnut nuclear radiation is to blame for some men in cheap monster suits-- I mean giant leeches -whtch start feeding on the residents of a small southern town. Especially noteworthy is the performance from July 1959 Playmate Yvette Vickers as a white trash goddess who, along with her illicit lover, is forced into the leech-infested swamp by her cuckolded husband.
1959 - Black & White - Not Rated - Approx. 62 mins.
The Killer Shrews
Captain Thorne Sherman (James Best who later played Rosco P. Coltrane on The Dukes of Hazzard) and his first mate Rook Griswold arrive at a small island on a routine supply run. A hurricane is approaching the tiny island, but tragedy doesn't stop there! Captain Sherman and company quickly find out the entire island is infested with giant flesh-eating shrews that have exhausted the food supply on the island, placing the research team in mortal peril.
1959 - Black & White - Not Rated - Approx. 70 mins.
Creature From Haunted Sea

He arranges to ship some Cuban VIP's - along with a large chunk of the national treasury to the states. During the voyage, Capeto plans to bump off his passengers and blame it on an imaginary sea monster. Complicating the plan are the presence of an American agent on board, and the sudden appearance of a very real sea monster.

The Ape Man
Screen legend Bela Lugosi stars as Dr. James Brewster, a mad scientist experimenting with the effects of gorilla spinal fluid on humans in his basement laboratory.

Only an infusion of fresh human spinal fluid can cure him, so he sends his pet gorilla out to harvest victims.

The Snow Creature
Botanist Frank Parrish and reporter Peter Wells lead an American expedition to the Himalayas. The group encounters and captures an abominable snowman, or to be politically correct, a yeti.

1954 - Black & White - Not Rated - Approx. 72 mins.
Lon Chaney Jr. plays a violent brute of a murderer known as Charles "The Butcher" Benton, Following a Botched robbery, Benton is sentenced to the gas chamber, and he vows revenge on the cohorts who betrayed him.

GAMERA - SUPER turtle (!)
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Gamera is the most charming of all the suitmation monsters. The bozo's who can't appreciate the effects in this movies are really missing the point. A+++"
Gamera, Guiron, and Gaos! Oh my!
Robert S. Clay Jr. | St. Louis, MO., USA | 04/19/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)
"To paraphrase Shakespeare, the gods look down on this uncertain event and laugh. For anyone who thought that the lesser Godzilla movies were the bottom of the Japanese sci-fi barrel, this movie is a reality check. Gamera wars against Guiron, a knife-headed giant lizard that crawls around on hands and knees. Guiron also slices through Gaos earlier in the film. (Who comes up with these names, anyway)? Two reckless pre-teens, Akio and Tom, journey to a counter-Earth planet inhabited by warring monsters and two space babes in svelte togs. For some viewers, the girls are the best part of the movie. Especially when the Japanese Thelma and Louise get the idea they need to eat the kids' brains. Akio's preparatory haircut adds a definite style statement. It does nothing to diminish his concern that road accidents are one of the great banes of life. He asserts this theory at least three times in the film. Great dialogue is evident when Space Babe #1 says, "Let's fix the ship first and then eat their brains." The dubbing and technical qualities of the DVD transfer meet low rent expectations. The FX are clumsy and rubberized, as usual. This juvenile sci-fi flck is strictly for indiscriminate kiddies, and steadfast fans of cheesy movies. It's fun in a reverse sort of way. ;-)"
A charming space drama
Patrik Kullman | Skåne Sweden | 11/06/2001
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Gamera vs Guillon, is the fifth film of the original Gamera series. This film is mainly aimed for children. This is a monster film from the worst period of the Kaju films; Shoe string budget, silly story, silly monsters - But a lot of charm!Story; Did you know that there's a kind of "anti Earth", a planet orbiting the sun on the same distance as Earth? Now you know! This planet called Terra, mirrors Earth's orbit and is invincible to us, because it's on the opposite side of the sun. But Terra is a haunted and a dying planet; Space Gyaos roams its surface!
2 boys, investigate a strange landed spacecraft - Suddenly, the spacecraft takes off!
But the trip seem to be cut short; A huge interstellar rock is on collision course to their space ship...
Suddenly Gamera appears, and saves them! But something doesn't seem to be right; Gamera don't like the way, where they are heading...
At Terra they discover a horrible world of monsters, and Guillon seems to be the worst brute of them all...
They also meet two beautiful women; Barbella and Flobella - They seem to be nice, but there's more than meet the eye... I've given this film 3 stars - Mainly because of its charm. The film has also very few reused monster scenes from earlier films. (Which was a very common in the end of the 1960s)
Technically this film is bad; Small budget, bad miniatures, bad monstersuits and some silly monsters designs.This edition is a quality one; Hard video box, trailers and theatrical stills after the film, and a lot of info on the two sided cover sleeve. It's also is subtitled, not dubbed - Which me, from a non-English speaking country, without tradition of dubbing - Appreciates a lot!
Thanks, Neptune media!"
