Gappa the Triphibian Monster (大巨獣ガッパ, Daikyojū Gappa) is a 1967 Japanese kaiju film directed by Haruyasu Noguchi. The film is about a group of Japanese reporters who discover an infant monster called a Gappa on Obelisk Island. The reporters cage the creature and take it to Japan where it becomes a media attraction. This angers the natives of the island and Gappa’s full-grown parents, who head toward Japan to find their child. Its plot virtually duplicates that of the 1961 British film Gorgo.
The film was released theatrically in Japan in 1967, but only received release on television in the United States as Monster from a Prehistoric Planet.
here is another computer generated 3D affair, as the fabulous GAPPA was not shot in 3D originally. VHS quality, pretty good 3D here n there. includes glasses! DVD-R comes packaged as shown in color DVD case, wrapped in plastic!
