Gamera vs. Viras [Gamera Collection review]

The original hero in a half-shell returns! For the first time ever worldwide, all twelve tales of the adventures of everyone s favourite titanic terrapin are collected together in one deluxe Blu-ray boxset. This limited edition collectors set traces the decades-long evolution of Gamera, from the friend of all children in his more light-hearted earlier films, to the Guardian of the Universe in the groundbreaking 1990s reboot series, often hailed as three of the best kaiju films ever made.

Gamera vs. Viras might be my favorite Gamera film. Why? Well, because it dispenses with trying to be a monster movie and turns into a kid friendly romp. A group of aliens tells the Earth to surrender Gamera or face the consequences. So, Earth sends a boy scout troop to meet with the aliens. This goes as well as expected.

Viras is a hive collective of squid aliens pretending to be human. Once they are exposed, they merge into the giant alien threat and begin attacked Gamera. What follows is some young kids working together to save the day. The alien design is cool, but that’s all I really have.

The Gamera Collection continues to roll on, as casual Kaiju fans might be getting tired. You get the alternate American version, featurettes, trailers and a ton more. At this point, just assume you’re getting the same special features for all of the classic Gamera movies. I’d recommend a purchase if you’re into these older films.

Gamera vs. Viras is available August 18th
