Gamera the flying turtle encounters Gyaos, a winged reptile with laser beam breath awakened from its prehistoric slumber by a volcanic eruption. Although Gamera endures several beatings, he eventually overcomes the creature's deadly breath and deposits it back in the volcano.
This bizarre third appearance of Gamera is strangely entertaining. Toho's rival studio, Daiei tried to combat the Godzilla craze with a series of Gamera films.

A New York couple enter into complex and macabre games with another woman, (Signoret), which escalate to a psychopathic nature and lead to tragedy.
Some grotesquely developed characters appear in this imaginative film that owes a lot to Les Diaboliques and Alfred Hitchcock.

THE GAMMA PEOPLE (1955/Warwick/Columbia) 79mins. BW. UK.
Credits: Dir: John Gilling; Prod: Irving Allen, Albert Broccoli & John Gossage; Sc: John Gilling & John Gossage; Ph: Ted Moore; Sfx: Tom Howard.

As geniuses they will serve the state better, but unfortunately the ray tends to result in the latter. Two journalists, (Douglas & Phillips), uncover the plot.
As a thriller this provides little in the way of suspense.

In a future society a government created nerve gas kills everyone over 30 and people from history emerge from a crack in the earth. Several young survivors encounter a fascist football team that lay siege to an idyllic commune.
An awful hippie musical comedy. Corman complained that the studio cut most of the better footage.

GEBISSEN WIRD NUR NACHTS-HAPPENING DER VAMPIRE (1971/Acquila Films/Ingrid Van Bergen) 102mins. Germany Aka: THE VAMPIRE HAPPENING.

THE GHASTLY ONES
(1968/JER) 16mm
Credits: Dir., Prod. & Ph: Andy Milligan; Sc: Andy Milligan & Hal Sherwood.
Cast: Veronica Radbur, Maggie Rogers.
Three couples arrive at a mansion on an island off the coast of Maine where two old ladies live with a hunchback who eats live rabbits. The interlopers end up being decapitated, sawn in half or punctured by pitchforks.
This is just one of Milligan's approximately twenty three cinematic efforts. All are made on a shoestring budget with his friends helping out as actors and crew. Here, the effects are so bad that you can plainly see the rubber limbs of the dummys.
Remade by Milligan as LEGACY OF HORROR.

GHIDORAH, SANDAI KAIJU CHIKYU SAIDAI NO KESSAN (1964/Toho/Continental) 85mins. Japan.
Aka: THE GREATEST BATTLE ON EARTH; MONSTER OF MONSTERS: GHIDRAH; GHIDRAH, THE THREE HEADED MONSTER.

Their princess predicts disaster for the earth when a fireball from a meteorite lands in a Japanese mountain and transforms into the fire breathing Ghidorah. Two fairies from Infant Island convince Rodan, Godzilla and Mothra to stop fighting each other and combat the interloper.
If you happen to like men in rubber suits stamping on miniature sets, this will still bore you, however, the animated sequence depicting the birth of Ghidorah from the fireball remains impressive.
Godzilla's sixth appearance.
Sequel: Kaiju Daisenso.

GHIDRAH, THE THREE HEADED MONSTER (1964)
see Ghidorah, Sandai Kaiju Chikyu Saidai No Kessan

THE GHOST (1962) see Lo Spettro de Dr. Hichcock

Cast: Don Knotts, Skip Homeier, Joan Staley, Liam Redmond, Dick Sargent, Reta Shaw.
A timid and nervous small town reporter, (Knotts), becomes embroiled in a libel case and encounters ghosts at a local mansion.

"There's something blood curdling for everyone!...When a pretty ghoul trades in her bedsheet for a bikini!"

The deceased benefactor, Mr. Stokely, (Karloff), tries to make sure the money goes to his heirs before he has to leave for heaven, so he enlists the aid of a young beautiful ghost wearing an invisible bikini.
A zany musical comedy featuring some monsters, lots of girls and, of course, a gorilla. This is the seventh and final BEACH PARTY film and one of the last appearences by the embarrassed Karloff and Rathbone.

However, noone seems to realise that the new clubhouse really is haunted.
A terrible musical comedy in which Blaisdell's slightly modified She Creature appears.

THE GHOST OF YOTSUYA (1958) Japan.
A detailed exploration of the human mind.

GHOST PARTY (1967) see Hillbillys in a Haunted House

GHOST SHIP (1952/Anglo Amalgamated) 74mins. BW. UK.

A medium arrives and reveals that the original owner murdered his wife and her lover and hid their bodies on the yacht after he heard them plotting to kill him.

Despite efforts to cordon off the river the monster emerges on the streets of London causing chaos and death while the army are unable to fire their missiles for fear of poisoning the whole city. When the monster returns to the water a radium tipped missile is shot into it's mouth from a submarine.
An under-rated, low budget film filled with gripping atmosphere. No models of well known London buildings were made as they cost too much to create realisticly. Watch for the same car being crushed three times.

THE GIANT CLAW (1957/Clover Prod./Columbia) 76mins. BW. US.
Aka: THE MARK OF THE CLAW; THE FLYING CLAW; THE CLAW.
Credits: Dir: Fred F. Sears; Prod: Sam Katzman; Sc: Samuel Newman & Paul Gangelin; Ph: Benjamin Kline; Ed: Saul A. Goodkind & Tony Di Marco; Art: Paul Palmentola; Mus: Mischa Bakaleinikoff.

When a scientist destroys the egg the enraged mother goes on the rampage, while scientists, (Morrow & Corday), develop a "Mu-Meson Projector" which enables them to break through the creature's force field and destroy it.
Due to the extremely low budget the creature looks something like a large overstuffed turkey on wires.
Features scenes from Earth Versus the Flying Saucers.
Corday was a "Playboy" pin-up of 1958.

A cheaply made slice of '50's horror hokum.
