Steelbook Gamera – The Heisei Trilogy (Arrow US) (Blu-Ray) Preorder

$46.99 $43.99

Trading the campy kid-friendly surrealism of the earlier films for a darker, more realistic tone and jaw-dropping innovative special effects, the “Heisei trilogy” are still regarded today as three of the best – if not the very best – kaiju films ever made.

Coming Soon

Description

After laying dormant for fifteen years, Gamera was rebooted for the big screen in a smash hit trilogy masterminded by director Shusuke Kaneko (Necronomicon), writer Kazunori Ito (Ghost in the Shell) and visual effects director Shinji Higuchi (who went on to co-direct Shin Godzilla). Trading the campy, kid-friendly surrealism of the earlier films for a darker, more realistic tone and jaw-droppingly innovative special effects, the Heisei Trilogy are still regarded today as among the best – and by some, the very best – kaiju films ever made.
