Gamera vs. Viras (1968) is not Gamera’s finest hour, but it’s still pretty damned entertaining. More impressive than its titular monster, Viras, is the fantastic design of his ship and his creepy humanoid lackeys who move around the ship in strange ways. My favourite moment is when the heroic child-stars of the film attempt to lasso an alien, which leads to an Nobuhiko Obayashi-esque airborne arm detachment.
