Young boys Akio (Nobuhiro Kajima) and Tom (Christopher Murphy) accidently hijack a spaceship that nobody but them as seen landing on earth. The spaceship takes them to earth's twin planet Terra, a planet hidden from our sight because it circles the sun on the directly opposite side from our planet, thus remains hidden throughout. Terra sees itself under permanent attack from space monster Gaos (see Gamera vs Gaos), but is protected by resident giant monster Guiron, a monster with a blade-shaped face that shoots ninja stars. Terra's human population in the meantime is down to two, Barbella (Hiroko Kai) and Florbella (Reiko Kasahara), who give the boys a very cordial welcome ... but actually they want to eat their brains to learn as much about earth as possible, then conquer earth - to eat more brains, I presume. The women put the boys through death trap after death trap, but the boys are skillful enough to escape all traps, and once they are not, giant sabretoothed space turtle Gamera comes to their rescue. But Gamera is defeated by Guiron and left for dead, which gives the Terrean women the upper hand ... until the boys release Guiron onto them. Now Guiron goes on a rampage, destroys the whole city they are living in and kills the women n the process. This is good news, but then the monster comes after the boys as well, and if it wasn't for Gamera, who just got ready for round two, the two rascals would have had it. With much skill and with the help of the local arsenal, Gamera destroys Guiron, then grabs the spaceship from the beginning with the boys in it in his mouth and takes our heroes back to earth.


One thing up front, Attack of the Monsters is not a good film by any definition, it's childish, badly written, cheaply made, and special effects and monster suits leave a lot to be desired ... and that exactly is part of the charm of the movie - it's a total piece of trash, but because of being just that, there's much to be loved about this one: The sets of the alien world are wonderful in their simplicity, as are the costumes of the alien ladies, the miniatures are cute, and Guiron the monster is bizarre in a hilarious way. As for the story, it is silly, but as much was to be expected, and somehow it's fun in its silliness.

So, don't expect greatness, but expect to enjoy this film in a childish sort of way ...
