Three children, two boys and a girl, stumble upon a flying saucer. The boys both step in without hesitating, and are whisked away to a planet in Earth's orbit but on the exact opposite side of the Sun. Inhabiting this planet are two women with Midwestern accents, who hypnotize the children to find they fantasize about milk, donuts, and Gamera, our favorite hero turtle. The women simply want to eat their brains. Back home, no one will believe the little girl's story of alien abduction, not even Officer Concha (pronounced "Cornjob"). Finally, Gamera rescues the children while fighting Guiron, a monster with a giant knife for a nose. Gamera kills Guiron while doing gymnastics on a parallel bar and takes the kids home, where the kids hope for peace, understanding, and the end of traffic accidents. Written by

I saw this flick decades ago as a kid, and it's one that stuck in my memory, though as an adult I couldn't figure out what the title was, remembering it as the monster movie with the xacto-blade bad guy. Every time I see powdered donuts, I think of this flick. The dubbing, of course, is simply atrocious, but the alien babes are foxes of the highest order.
I just bought the SciFi Classics box set of 50 movies for $19.99, and was pleased to find Attack of the Monsters among the selection, along with Destroy All Planets, clips of which are included here as flashbacks. How Queen of the Amazons qualifies for inclusion as well isn't clear, but hey, for 40 cents a pop you can't go wrong.
