Mystery Science Theater 3000: GAMERA VS. GUIRON
July 9, 2015 2:03 AM - Season 3, Episode 12 - Subscribe

(1969, Color, Kaiju, Monster, Japanese, Gamera, Sandy Frank, Cornjob) aka "Attack Of The Monsters" "Will Gamera be a super turtle or turtle soup?" A pair of boys is taken away by two scantly-clad alien ladies to their home planet -- but they plan to eat their brains! To rescue the kids, Gamera will have to fight the inexplicable Guiron, a monster with a big knife blade for a forehead. If Gamera vs. Gaos is the best Gamera movie taken on its own terms, this one is, by far, the most entertaining one in an episode of MST3K. With a goofy enemy monster, Gamera doing many blatantly absurd things like gymnastics, and a character who's name sounds all the world like Cornjob, it's an awesome episode overall and excellent fun even for newbies. And it's the episode that gives us the Gamera Fight Song! It is fourth of the Gamera movies suffered by the crew of the SOL, and the sixth Sandy Frank movie. One Gamera film, and two other Sandy Frank films, remain. YouTube (1h37m) KTMA Original! (YouTube, 1h33m)

If you see only one Gamera movie mocked by puppets, make Gamera vs Guiron your choice!

I'm going to see Rifftrax riff Sharknado 2 tonight; if I get back early enough, I'll join you for the end of the movie.

Hello. Thank you.

I hope everyone sees this quickly....

The room silently crashed, it seems, I had to reload and apparently everyone's been dumped, apparently without telling anyone. Try coming back into the room.

You know, it just dawned on me how weird this film is.

It's a calamity!

It went pretty well despite getting started a little late 'cause I had drifted off a minute or two before start time, heh.

Pre-roll material was the amazing and ridiculous STARCRASH, which I wonder to this day how it escaped the MST3K treatment, and a new playlist over over a hundred bad movie trailers, which I look forward to inflicting on viewers for weeks to come.
