After reports of UFO sightings, the spaceship AAB Gamma is sent promptly from Japan to travel to Mars to investigate and determine who or what these sighting are. As the AAB Gamma approaches Mars, an Alien vessel is encountered. Unknown to the group of scientists aboard the Gamma, this alien vessel proceeds to infect the Gamma with unknown cosmic spores Upon their return to Earth the scientists find the space spores that have contaminated their ship. This discovery is but the beginning of a horrific earth invasion When one of the spores is removed to be analyzed, it escapes, and eventually grows into a huge, rampaging lizardesque monster that is to be called “Guilala” Guilala begins a path of death and destruction all through Tokyo, reigning fireballs and feeding on nuclear fuel. The creature travels from power supply to power supply, gradually becoming stronger. It is nearly impossible to stop as it completely annihilates all military planes and tanks within it’s path. The Monster is defeated eventually by coating it with a new element that was created by scientists. This element, a substance called “ Guilalaium,” is loaded into bombs which are transported by jet and dropped onto the monster. Eventually enough Guilalaium is dropped onto the creature to cause a reaction which causes it to shrink back to it’s original spore size and neutralize the danger allowing the government to retrieve it . The spore is then returned safely back into space were it is placed into a safe and endless orbit around the sun. The 1967 kaiju film, The X From Outer Space, was released by the Japanese film studio Shochiku and was the first such film by Shochiku. It was directed by Kazui Nihonmatzu. It starred Eiji Okada and Toyshiya Wanaki. It was release the following year, 1968 in the United States.
