Hard to get DVD, in the real box for $12.99 so I understand the fact that's it's a copy not the real thing. But everything worked (scene select, previews etc) Really happy to finally see the original Japanese Version with the Giant Octopus at the end. I've only seen shots of it Various Godzilla Comporiums. Great Job. Well worth the price. Mailman here in Irving, Tx put my package in the Wrong Mailbox but I was lucky the person who got it returned it to the Apt Office Unopened! There are still some honest people here in USA.
keep up the good work.
After searching high and low online for years and years, l had almost thrown in the towel trying to find any reasonably priced DVD copy of this cinematic nostalgia blast from way back in the day. No frickin' way I was going to shell out $30 or $35 to Crooks-R-Us concerns-even with free shipping. Then just a few weeks ago-out of nowhere-I see this listing for some site called Sumogorilla that shows they have this geeky monster masterpiece. So I figure what the heck and check it out anyway, while still not getting my hopes up too high. My #1 DVD entry at the top of my cult-classic movie wish- list had finally been realized-only $12.99 for a 2-disc DVD special edition with both dubbed English and subtitled Jap- anese versions of "Frankenstein Conquers the World" plus free S&H. Add to that the "special feature cherries" which include numerous featurettes and Japan-a-monster trailers. Oh, by the way, ignore any nit-picky criticisms about the playback quality of the US disc looking like a shoddy VHS transfer. I've been a video-recording enthusiast-or videophile in technical lingo-for more about 35 years, and I can assure you that the original VHS master used for the DVD transfer of the English version is quite close in visual sharpness and color clarity to the DVD to DVD Japanese copies. The one exception to this is the sporadic appearance of short, thin travelling video hash lines at the very bottom of the overall picture image, especially on televisions with larger screens. This particular distortion is barely noticeable and should not detract from your viewing enjoyment. So do yourself a huge favor and get this one quick before we all get clobbered by some mega meteor. You will most definitely be glad that you took my advice.
The movie is great and so was my whole experience shopping here I look forward to shopping here again :)
I had been curious about this movie for years. Yet everywhere I looked the price for this movie had been insane. But someone recommended this website. Best decision ever. Now the dvd is DVD-R and all but I recommend it for any one curious about this film who doesn't mind it being recorded. Besides It came with alot of bonuses to make up for it plus a second disk for the japanese version. Plus it shipped to my place pretty fast. Overall everything I recieved for the price is worth it. Also the Film was interesting too.
Absolutely enjoyed watching this again! Didn't realize the connection between this movie and War of the Gargantuas till recently. The video was great and clear as was the sound. Plan to buy again from sumogorilla.
A good and enjoyable kaiji movie. It takes the old Frankenstein tale and combines it with a Japanese kaiji (giant monster) movie, having a giant Frankenstein monster battle the subterranean monster Baragon while staying faithful to Frankenstein lore by having people look upon Frankenstein as an evil monster when he is really good and by having Frankenstein die at the end. The movie is eerie, dramatic, and suspenseful with some good characters, actors, and special effects. This DVD set includes the American edit "Frankenstein Conquers the World" as well as the original Japanese and international edits "Frankenstein vs. Baragon". The international edit includes an alternate ending in which Frankenstein battles a giant octopus. But buying beware, this is a DVD-R version. But considering how expensive it is elsewhere, it's really not a bad deal. Highly Recommended!
I have always been curious about this flick and now curiosity aside I really enjoyed it. Thank you Sumogorilla for another fine Toho production added to my collection.
Finally, I get to own a copy of this hard to find movie thanks to Sumogorilla. Though the movie is full of cheese and campiness (which I love) the story, dialogue, FX and production are actually must better than I expected. There's a whole anti-atomic bomb subplot and even an Nazi angle early on in the movie which is kind of a interesting, IMO. The transfer is probably as good as it will get without a remaster from the originals. The Japanese cut is of much better quality than the AIP version which looks as if it was taken from a VHS. Again, this may be unavoidable. A bonus, at least to me, is the leading actress in the movie is the stunningly beautiful Kumi Mizuno.
