Description by OLDIES.com:
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? The eight classic Gamera films are presented in Japanese with English subtitles!
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.
Gamera vs. Guiron (1969): Gamera, the giant flying turtle, spins into action when two young boys board a spaceship and are hijacked to a strange planet on the other side of the sun. While the boys evade the clutches of two brain-hungry alien beauties, Gamera must deal with a knife-nosed monster named Guiron.
Gamera vs. Jiger (1970): The fire-breathing action continues as Gamera battles one of his greatest foes, Jiger, a horned monster reminiscent of the Triceratops. Drawn to the World Expo in Osaka by an ancient statue, the evil reptile injects Gamera with its parasitic offspring to eliminate the super turtle.
Gamera vs. Zigra (1971): The shark-like alien Zigra attacks Earth to enslave the human race as food. Aided by spacewoman X-1, Zigra s wicked plan goes swimmingly until the invaders are challenged by Gamera and confounded by two troublemaking kids.
Gamera: Super Monster (1980): The final entry of the Showa Gamera series plays as a highlight reel reviving all of the previous evil monsters. When the alien Zanon tries to conquer Earth with an army of monsters, three superwomen enlist the help of Gamera to foil the invader s plans.
Gamera: Guardian of the Universe (1995): Gamera is back with a vengeance as he takes on both a misguided military and a trio of hideous, man-eating flying monsters.
Gamera 2: Attack of Legion (1996): A freak meteor shower brings with it electrical problems, overgrown plant life and a whole slew of rather irritable critters that drop in to threaten the human race. It s up to Gamera to destroy the bugged-out invaders.
Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris (1999): The Gyaos have returned along with a new, tentacled super-monster named Iris. Dr. Nagamine and Asagi Kusanagi are reunited to help Gamera in his relentless quest to stop his enemies from overrunning the Earth.
