GAMERA vs ZIGRA / Daiei Studios - 1971

It's Monster Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon, our offering stars our home boy, Gamera! After a mysterious spaceship destroys a Moon base, almighty Zigra, a giant shark, then arrives on Earth and intends to take over the planet...

We have a nice soundclip for this giant monster classic, so, push the big red 'GO' button there by the atomic bomb, now, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here are some sounds from... GAMERA vs ZIGRA!

Two scientists and their brats... err, kids, are captured by almighty Zigra and taken aboard his aquatic spaceship. There, they're shown the destruction the alien is perpretrating on the people of Earth.

What can you say?.. The dude's a fruity Skittles freak!

For payback for his dead friends here, Zigra plans on replacing the fish with people!!

Although Zigra's spaceship resembles a harmless Rococo candy dish, it sure packs a wallop against the Japanese Air Force!

Zigra sends his Earth girl helper out (taken from the Moon) to bring back the two kids that escaped earlier. And, she needs some different clothes that don't look so conspicuous!

Great choice!!

All the guys keep staring at her, so, she changes into a red mini dress. Then, there's a 10 minute Benny Hill style chase scene where she never catches the kids, because, they're just too tricky for her!

After Zigra sinks Gamera, the scientists go down in a diving bell to assess the damage.

The kids stowaway on the diving bell, the little girl always seems to be wanting a Coca-Cola for some reason!

When Zigra is in full shark mode, he resembles a Goblin shark, a rare species of deep sea shark found most commonly near Japan!

Gamera wants to come out and play! Bottom still shows him playing the vibes on Zigra's spine plates!

The final solution is for Gamera to use his built-in flame thrower and toast the mean old fish fillet!

Good-bye, Gamera!!.. Until next time!
