Gammera the Invincible

Please choose a format above.

Do you take your Gammera with one M or two? It’s two for Gammera the Invincible, the (sort of) first movie featuring everyone’s favorite big spinny turtle!

Gam(m)era’s first appearance was in Gamera, the Giant Monster, released in Japan in 1965. A year later, American filmmakers added a few unnecessary scenes with Americans, an M to the name, and Gammera the Invincible was born!

With a large audience of “people who probably thought they were going to a Godzilla movie” the series went on for years, as anyone reading this probably knows. And all the hallmarks of the series are right here in the original: A weird child with a powerful affection for an irradiated turtle. A turtle who was born to spin and fart fire. And of course, everybody’s favorite, long scenes of rational argument among government officials concerning how to deal with the crisis!

Will Tokyo survive? Will a boy be forced to part with his pet turtle? Will Mothra ever get around to helping out? Take a flame-farting spin with Mike, Kevin, and Bill aboard Gammera the Invincible!
