GAMMERA THE INVINCIBLE (1966)

The first film in Daiei’s “let’s ripoff Toho’s Godzilla series” to feature the giant super turtle is your typical Kaiju cheesefest. Toy like special effects and noisy city smashing are in abundance as Gammera thrashes the shit out of Tokyo after being rudely awakened by an atomic blast.  Additional U.S. footage featuring Albert Dekker is hilariously bad. Gammera would go on to battle some of the goofiest monsters in Kaiju history in future efforts.
