TURTLES, ALIENS, AND UNCLE PETE – IT MUST BE SPRING!
Spring is here – a time for the flowers to start bloomin’, the birds to return northward, and the giant atomic turtles to start fighting. So join UNCLE PETE and a slightly disappointed El Vato on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN this week for the 1969 action-packed, alien filled, monster-stompin’ classic – Attack Of The Monsters, starring that kid-lovin’ giant turtle – Gamera, Nobuhiro Kajima as Akio, Miyuki Akiyama as his little sister Tomoko, and Chrystopher Murphy as their friend Tom. The kids see a flying saucer land near their home and the boys, of course, go on board to investigate. They are whisked away to an alien world called Terra, located on the exact opposite side of the sun from earth. While on their way, their good buddy Gamera – who always senses when kids are in danger – saves them from a meteor storm. Gamera then decides to follow them along their journey to see what’s up.
The boys meet the last 2 members of an alien race looking for a new planet to take over and some brains to eat. They also meet the giant beastie Guiron, the aliens’ protector, who battles with bird-like Gaos. Meanwhile, back on earth, Tomoko is having little success convincing anybody that the boys were taken into outer space. It’s up to Tom and Akio and Gamera to try to save Earth.
Also starring Eiji Funakoshi (who appeared in the original Gamera) as Dr. Shiga and directed by Noriaki Yuasa, from 1969, it’s Attack Of The Monsters!
UNCLE PETE, back at the VAULT, is deeply engrossed in trying out the brand newest internet sensation – Vito-net(tm) – an internet connection thousands of times faster than any other – accessed by the prototype laptop he’s trying out courtesy of VITO GOLD ENTERPRISES ™. He manages to find some unexpected footage of himself, some other interesting tidbits and some great Japanese music videos including ones from the Polysics and The Plastics performing songs heard on The Uncle Pete Show on WHRW-FM. He also discovers that sometimes prototypes don’t bounce very good.
So grab a can of Toddy and tune in to cable channel 4 (Binghamton area), channel, 17 (Sayre area) and channel 99 (Elmira/Corning area) from 10PM to midnight this Saturday, March 22, 2014 as UNCLE PETE kicks off Spring with some great tunes and some great monster battles. It’s Attack Of The Monsters, the next feature presentation on THE DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!
