Storyline

Several satellites have been destroyed without explanation. A few days later, a group of diamond thieves are thwarted when the gems they are after suddenly disappear. Strangely enough, the two incidents are connected when scientists discover that a giant jellyfish like creature, which was mutated due to a high amount of radiation hovering over Japan, is drawing up all carbon based matter, including coal and diamonds. Soon the creature is also attacking bridges and ships. Can anything be done to destroy the creature before he begins drawing up all mankind? Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Trivia

Even though Robert Dunham spoke nearly perfect Japanese throughout most of the film, he did get away with one phrase of English. In the scene where the mob breaks into his hotel room and Hamako (Moll) snatches the key to the safe, he says in perfect English, "Hey, you can't take that!" See more »

Goofs

In the scenes featuring the smaller Dogoras, the strings holding them up are clearly seen. See more »

Crazy Credits

The U.S. English dubbed version, released by American International under the title "Dagora, The Space Monster," has all of the cast and credits removed. The picture and sound contain an awkward jump from the main title to the first scene. It is believed that American International, for unknown reasons, physically cut the cast and credits from their initial release prints. See more »

Eiji, we salute you!
5 March 1999 | by (Planet Kir&acircku) – See all my reviews

Ah Eiji Tsubayara! A mastermind at the Kaiju Eiga special FX. He did this with success. I think those Dogora Jellyfish are some of the coolest monsters I've ever seen. Sure,they don't have special explosive beams or nuclear fire, but they can swallow whole traffic,lamp posts, bridges, buildings and even people!

Too bad the Dogoras didn't make an appearance in "All Monsters Fight Together"(Destroy All Monsters), but they do appear in "Ultra Man" and "Ultora Q".
