"You can thank St. Clair Entertainment for releasing this extremely low priced 3 DVD set containing 9 classic monster movies (8 of them Japanese) from the 60s & 70s. The set, rightfully entitled "Giant Monsters", includes no less than 5 films starring Gamera the flying turtle. The other 4 flicks include one with the gasoline eating Yongary, a giant starfish from another planet, the prehistoric Gappas, and a Giant Gila Monster! One of the first questions to come up will be "How's it look?". Well, for 9 low budget monster flicks (the most recent being 35 years old) that were never known for their amazing picture quality, these look surprisingly decent. Fans of these films shouldn't be expecting much in that department anyway. The pops, cracks, color problems, and specs are part of the experience. Honestly these look like good VHS copies put onto a DVD. According to the package the sound is Dolby Digital 5.1 and I must admit the sound being very audible is one of the first things I noticed. Yes, the Japanese language is overdubbed. There are even extra features! Definitely worth the low price and a jackpot for fans of giant flying turtles!

Not that clear of a picture

"As much as I wanted to just love this collection, the transfers appear to be off 2nd generation EP speed masters. It is not a pretty picture. On top of that, it appears they went to a medium resolution in order to fit 3 titles on each DVD.
If you're just looking for a cheap monster DVD, this is your title. It's not like you're looking for HD action with a flying turtle."
Best Monster Collection!

"As a fan of the Giant Monster Movie genre you are forever searching for the perfect collection of movies. I for one have come across many collections of monster movies, and I chose the Giant Monsters DVD collection from St. Clair Entertainment because it was the collection I always wanted (not only that but it was priced very low). This collection is best for those who love B-Monster Movies of yesteryear (and those who are fans of Gamera who has five films on this collection). These movies are all in english (dubbed of not) and look as if they were transfered from video which is fine but the Giant Gila Monster is messed up in two places during the film (for a second or two). Nonetheless this is the best collection I've come across with more than two or three Gamera movies and with a total of 9 monster movies this makes for a great Friday Night Monster Flick Night, so when you buy this DVD break-out the pop-corn curl up with someone as you shout out GAMERA's name for help from Barugon, Gaos, the Outer Space Monster Viras,and Monster X!"
There are better set out there
