Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Attack Of The Monsters is one of the lesser Gamera entries. It's obvious the filmmakers had a smaller budget with this entry because it recycles scenes from other films in this series and features some atypically shoddy rear-projection effects. The kid-friendly focus of the film is taken a bit too far, making the film sickly-sweet at times, and it doesn't help that young star Christopher Murphy is a terrible actor. That said, completists may still want to check Attack Of The Monsters (known in Japan as Gamera Vs. Guiron) for a few reasons. The first is villain Guiron, who has a unique design - his head and nose are shaped like a giant knife blade. Guiron is probably also the most violent of Gamera foes: a startling scene has him using his razor-sharp noggin to chop up a rival monster he has just killed! The film's plot also has some surprising fairytale-like elements, with the two humanoid aliens that drive the plot kind of acting like the witch from "Hansel And Gretel" towards our kid heroes (right down to wanting to use them as a food source). Ultimately, the mix of saccharine kid-movie elements and often surrealistic monster movie shocks will not be to everyone's taste but monster movies might find Attack Of The Monsters to be an amusingly campy entry in the Gamera series.
