RADIOACTIVE TURTLE – FULLY COOKS YOUR THANKSGIVING TURKEYS IN 3 SECONDS!
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a turtle!!! Join UNCLE PETE on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN for the 1965 big screen debut of our favorite giant turtle in Gamera The Invincible (a.k.a. – Daikaiju Gamera). And it’s another DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN remastered broadcast – biggerer, brighterer, betterer, and turtley-er then before.
When a bomb blast wakens our sleeping hero, he gets up a little cranky and takes a walk through some of Tokyo’s hot spots (at least they are after he gets through with them). Gamera The Invincible was the only film in the original crop of Gamera movies that was released in American theaters. Re-edited and longer than the original Japanese release, the U.S. version added several scenes and American actors (including Brian Donlevy and Albert Dekker) to the original line-up starring Eiji Funakoshi and Harumi Kintachi. Directed by Noriaki Yuasa. From 1965, it’s Gamera The Invincible.
Back in The Dark Vault Laboratory, UNCLE PETE is working under a secret contract with an unnamed party to develop a size enhancement formula. The enlarging fluid does more than expected as it turns a robot into a rampaging, stomping, flying giant pain in the neck and UNCLE PETE sends El Vato out to clean things up. You know, the usual. But UNCLE PETE still finds time between disasters to bring you some music, including a video by the Plastics, and a cartoon about a meanie up north called The Snowman to help prepare you for the coming chill. It all happens this Saturday, November 8, 2014 from 10PM to midnight on channel 4 (Binghamton), channel 17 (Sayre, PA), and channel 99 (Elmira/Corning/Hornell). So dig out your atomic turtleneck sweaters and join UNCLE PETE and EL Vato for Gamera The Invincible on the next DARK VAULT OF PUBLIC DOMAIN!!!
