    • Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris

      Gamera 3: Revenge of Iris

      Saturday, April 8, 7 PM

      Starting in 1995 with Gamera, the Guardian of the Universe, Shusuke Kaneko rebooted the Gamera tokusatsu series with a new trilogy starring the title flying giant turtle. The third film, Gamera 3: Revene of Iris, which mixes ancient folktales about monsters asleep in mountains with modern fears about scientific horrors, is the best of the lot—one big reason being the monster-versus-monster battles created by effects supervisor Shinji Higuchi (Shin Godzilla) intended to frighten and awe, not amuse with campy antics.
