Trivia

The story was originally going to take place in Guam. However, this was changed to Hachigo Island because the budget wasn't substantial enough to afford shooting on location in Guam. See more »

Goofs

The lighted eyes on the monster Gezora went dead halfway through filming of the fx. There was no money left in the FX budget to repair them, and they remain unlighted in certain scenes. See more »

One funky kaiju eiga!
19 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

First,I watched "Matango", that was silly, but I just sat there.......

Then I stumbled upon "Supeesu Amibaa"(Kessen!no Dakaiju), this one blows away the other Island monster movies that Toho made. For example, check out the scenes of animals turning into giant latex Kaijus and to top it off, one of the stranded islanders from Japan (takes place in GUAM y'know!) gets infected by the "Supeesu Amiba".

Still worth watching,and possibly for laughing too!
