|On a serene paradise island untouched by modern technology, a dark secret has been hidden for centuries. A group of scientists sent by a greedy land developer who plans to turn the island into an amusement park, stumble across what appears to be a baby dinosaur.|
Editor's NoteThe natives of an untouched island paradise have kept the secret of their island to themselves for hundreds of years. However, a group of scientists and a greedy entrepreneur are making plans to turn this Eden into an amusement park (shades of JURASSIC PARK), and in the course of their research, they discover Gappa, a baby dinosaur, which they abduct from the island, thus provoking the wrath of Gappa's protective parents. A true classic from the country that specialized in giant monster features, GAPPA has easily earned a position alongside the better known classics of the genre like GODZILLA and MOTHRA.

Customer Reviews of Gappa
Technically it's the same movie, but it is not the same dvd. I have (Monster From A Prehistoric Planet) on two different box sets. A 9 movie set simply called GIANT MONSTERS and a 50 movie pack called HORROR CLASSICS. The picture quality is much better in the 50 movie pack set. It maintains a better color level and is not nearly as dark and murky as in the Giant Monsters' set. But if you're really interested in expanding your daikaiju collection get the dvd entitled GAPPA THE TRIPHIBIAN MONSTER
