Media Blasters is offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win their new Blu-ray edition of the Nikkatsu kaiju cult classic, GAPPA: THE TRIPHIBIAN MONSTER (大巨獣ガッパ, Daikyojū Gappa, 1967)!
Originally released directly to U.S. television in 1968 as MONSTER FROM A PREHISTORIC PLANET (in a badly panned and scanned format), GAPPA unfolds on a serene tropical island paradise untouched by modern civilization and technology where a dark secret lies dormant for centuries. When a greedy business tycoon has grandiose plans to turn the island into the world’s largest resort and amusement park, a team of scientists stumble upon a mysterious dinosaur egg. When the egg hatches, Gappa is born — a mythical giant reptilian bird that the indigenous island people worship as a god. Seeing dollar signs, the tycoon hurriedly ships the baby monster to Tokyo for commercial exploitation. Little does he know that the much larger, irate parents of the infant Gappa follow close behind to rescue their precious baby and wreak havoc upon monster-plagued Tokyo!
The GAPPA: THE TRIPHIBIAN MONSTER Blu-ray (SRP $19.98) and remastered DVD (SRP $19.98) will be available from retailers this week. Both feature a fresh high-definition transfer with the original Japanese audio, the English dub, and English subtitles. The movie has a running time of 84 minutes.
