Gappa Is Angry . . .
Sure . . . U.S. movies brought King Kong to the world, but those Japanese sci-fi movies from the 1950's and 1960's brought terrifying monsters to the world every week, with throngs of people frantically running in the streets as giant monsters crush tall buildings on terrifying treks through Tokyo. This terrifying sci-fi thriller begins on a ship headed for a remote South Seas island in search of exotic animals to bring back to a new Japanese family theme park being built by the Playmate Magazine publisher. Once on the island Kurosaki and his beautiful young assistant Koyanagi discover a hidden cave . . . with a giant egg inside that begins to hatch when an earthquake shakes the island. A small pre-historic animal has hatched from the egg and is quickly captured and put on board the ship for the return trip to Japan. The animal grows quickly in its hidden cage in a secret laboratory, and the beast demonstrates that it can spew a mighty heat-ray from its mouth killing anything in its path. But this baby monster isn't the biggest danger to Japan . . . Back on the South Seas Island the baby monster's mama and papa monster are very upset that their little baby monster has been kidnapped and they fly in the air towards Japan, knocking huge passenger jets out of the way on their journey to save their baby monster. Of course, as in any good 1960's Japanese Sci-Fi adventure the beasts will walk through town knocking down tall buildings as terrified citizens flee in horror. Military Jets will fire rockets . . . tanks will blast away at the giant monsters . . . All of the firepower of the great Japanese military will try to kill the mama and papa Grappa monsters, but they continue their search for their little baby Gappa. What can be done if the strongest military weapons fail to kill the giant Gappa monsters? Is there any power on earth that can save Tokyo from complete destruction? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter on it and enjoy the show.
