All three monsters, the squid Gezora, the crab Ganimes and the turtle Kamoebas have remained relatively obscure and never had a major role in later monster movies made by Toho. However, Gezora gained some notoriety for its appearance as the first boss in Nintendo's Godzilla: Monster of Monsters video game and its brief cameo in Gojira: Fainaru uôzu (2004), and Kamoebas also had a cameo as a carcass washed ashore in Gojira tai Mosura tai Mekagojira: Tôkyô S.O.S. (2003). See more »
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 »
The Japanese have always had incredible ambitions in their fantasy movies. They have always been ready to destroy cities by huge plastic monsters coming from outer space and elsewhere. The problem is they have never had the money to succeed in making convincing special effects. This film, released in France under the title Les envahisseurs de l'espace, is no exception. Its ambition is to show three creatures from the giant octopus to the giant lobster trying to have the upper hand on the humans. It's extremely awkward and laughable, but well quite enjoyable too. After all, we do like these creatures and these films after all, don't we?
