Gamera: The Heisei Era

Gamera: The Heisei Era

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 SFX 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 is still regarded today as among the best – and by some, the very best – kaiju films ever made.

This unmissable trio is complimented by Gamera the Brave, a heartwarming mix of family-friendly adventure and cutting-edge kaiju action that is the most recent Gamera film to date.
