Nothing much to go on yet, just this little back side of the front cover card from the latest Anolis release (Terror), which always teasers the coming releases. This one teasers two titles for their "fantastic classics" series. This one is for the subseries "the 60s": "Gorath" (in German "Ufos zerstören die Erde" which translates to "UFOs are destroying the earth"). The original title is Yōsei Gorasu, as it is a Japanese science fiction film. This title translates to "Omnious Star Gorath". With this title joining the collection we now have:

 

  • "Die 60er": 1) The Satan Bug (1965), 2) The Sorcerers (1967), 3) Kaitei daisensô [The Terror Beneath the Sea] (1966), 4) Tales of Terror (1962), 5) Yōsei Gorasu [Gorath] (1962)
  • "Die 70er": 1) Willard (1971), 2) Ben (1972), 3) Terror (1978)
  • "Die 80er": 1) Forbidden World (1982), 2) Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984), 3) Happy Birthday to Me (1981)

 

As usual with Anolis this will probably come with two cover artworks, we only get the classic movie poster as teaser, so there might probably still be another more interesting probably artistically drawn artwork as well. Other than that there is nothing more to tell.

 

As for the movie, 妖星ゴラス was directed by Ishirō Honda (multiple Kaiju and Tokusatsu films including a number of Godzilla movies) and tells about the human efforts to moving the Earth out of its orbit as a runaway white dwarf is on a collision course with earth.

For the US release this movie was heavily edited, so hopefully this release will come with both versions of the film (as did the very first release "Forbidden World". But we don't have any information on any extras yet, unfortunately. Interestingly, neither bluray-disc.de nor blu-ray.com know of any releases, and amazon.com lists just three DVD releases: "Vintage Sci-Fi Movies - 6 Movie Collection", "Science Fiction Classics Collection - 6-Film Collection) and "Gorath - Ufos Zerstören die Erde" (German release). So this might be the world premiere of this movie on HD blu-ray. On the negative side, however, this being a relase from Anolis, it might not be English friendly. Anolis usually only adds German subtitles, and if the original soundtrack isn't English you'd probably have to be good in your Japanese or German to watch it. This is of course just speculation on my part, based on the past experience with Anolis. But please be warned, and wait for a confirmation of this - which I will provide without hesitation once I know more. In the mean time, just enjoy the trailers for Gorath (first the US trailer, the second the original japanese one):

Hey guys!

 

Maybe a moderator/administrator can update these info in the first post:

 

Release: March 19th, 2021

Link: Cover A, Cover B

Wicked Shop is just one example where you'll be able to get it, but since now even international buyers have made good experiences with Wicked, so as usually I'll link them. Interestingly, this time Anolis chose to go with both titles. Next to the German "Ufos zerstören die Erde", we get the English Title Gorath as well (which is near to the Japanese original: Yōsei Gorasu; translated to "Omnious Star Gorath").

Will you pick this up? If so, which cover will you choose? International buyers be aware though:

This only comes with Japanese original soundtrack, or German dubbing, and only includes German subtitles. Not English friendly, unfortunately :(

I myself picked out Cover B. Both are not nice, in my eyes, and while I really like the colors of the first one, I like the more original title on the second one, and also that it is a drawn artwork not a cheap photoshop montage.

Hi,

the "UFOS..."-Artwork is the original german poster from the release in the 70s. Maybe it is not known, but  usual, Anolis goes for original movie poster artwork, which I like, allthough some posters were not so great. But it adds to the nostalgic flair.

 

Best wishes,

Ingojira

Hi Ingojira!

 

Yes, this is know, and in the past I used to also research all the cover artworks I did not know, just to add that information in the texts as well. The reason I am not doing that anymore is simply that I don't find the time, and that I feel that if I do, the time is rather "wasted" because not many are interested in these releases here anyway. From the few that I know that are interested, some wont buy it, because of the all German booklet, others already invested in Box sets like the releases of PowerHouse Indicator from UK, or many of the US releases, and so they are only interested in selected titles.

That's why my rather lengthy presentations of the releases and movies did grow smaller and smaller in the last months. But you are always welcome to add additional information like this. This is really appreciated (at least from my part :) ).

Thanks! :)

PS:  Which of the covers did you get? I opted for Cover B, as I liked that it was a drawn cover (I am a sucker for drawn covers, they always win my heart over). I like the A one for its much better use of color, but I actually hate those collages where you have different scenes of the movie all smashed together. Even though they are the original covers (which I highly appreciate!) I'd rather see them in the booklet and a cool really rare exclusively and newly commissioned artistic artwork on the outside. But yeah, that's just me :D I know a lot of people love the retro-style packaging, and I do get why they do :D I think I would be drawn to them as well, if it was the cover I grew up with, but most of these movies where long before my time, to be honest.
