how in the world did a clip of this end up in Red Dwarf?!? but i always thought it was funny when clips from Reptilicus kept popping up in Monkees episodes!ReplyDelete
It was the episode where they went to the waxworks planet (where Rimmer led waxdroids of Elvis, Ghandi, Marilyn Monroe and others against a waxdroid army of evil figures from history in a battle). Shortly after they arrived, they spot a pair of Gappas in the distance -- insert clip -- although they aren't mentioned by name (and it's noted by the characters, probably Kryten, how unrealistic they look).ReplyDelete
I was never exposed to this movie until scenes from the monsters rampaging through Tokyo were used in a Cadillac (or was it Pontiac?) commercial 15 years ago. Then I had to ask JD LEes at G-Fan what the heck the movie was. Also known as "Monster From a Prehistoric Planet," it's available several places on the Internet. My copy is a double-bill DVD from Retromedia along with "Gamera VS Monster X."ReplyDelete
Tim -- Now that you mention it, I vaguely recall that commercial too!ReplyDelete
I may well have it on one of my Dollar Store DVDs with a Gamera movie... I'll have to check one of these days!
If it's on a Dollar Store DVD as a second feature with Gamera, it's likely the Retromedia double-bill I mentioned. They released several Gamera films with other 60s Japanese monster movies. The other one to hunt down is Gamera's "Return of the Giant Monsters" and "The Magic Serpent," another Retromedia double-bill. "The Magic Serpent" is a film I didn't discover until about 10 years ago, and it blew my mind. It definitely has to be seen to be believed!ReplyDelete
