A series of massive volcano eruptions shakes Japan, & that of course brings lava-hungry giant sabretooth turtle Gamera to the fore ... but seemingly nothing can stop those construction workers, led by Suzumi (Kojiro Hongo),  to try & build their expressway, even if some landowners from the nearby village refuse to sell them their country ...

Then though a little boy, Eiji (Naoyuki Abe), grandson of the village's leader: a pointy headed giant moster that looks like the cross of a bat & a dinosaur, that lives in a nearby cave, that shoots supersonic rays that cut everything right in half, & that occasionally eats humans ... & it does sem today Eiji himself is on the menu, but he is saved in the nick of time by Gamera, who's badly wounded in the fight though & soon retreats to the bottom of the ocean to cure himself ...

Meanwhile scientists & the military try to bomb the evil creature, dubbed Gaos, to kingdom come ... rather unsuccessful since Gaos cuts the military bomberjets in half ... Then he goes on his obligatory rampage through the next japanese city ...

When Gamera resurfaces though, he battles Gaos once again & drags the fight out into the day, which is obviously not to Gaos advantage, since his head soon seems to start turning red. Gaos can escape in the end, but only just. It is then that little Eiji tells the scientists & the military that he has come to the conclusion that Gaos is a nighttime creature, so the best thing would be to lure him out into the daylight long enough to just evaporate ... but how to do it ?

... & here comes a typical piece of b-movie logic: why not lure Gaos onto a pedestal (by using fake human blood), then start spinning the pedestal really fast so Gaos will get dizzy & won't be able to make it back to his cave before daylight. And it almost works, too, but only almost ...

So little Eiji comes up with yet one more idea to fight the monster: To set the forest his cave is in on fuire ... not only does Gaos despise fire, but the fire, if big enough, might also lure Gamera there & good Gamera will fight & defeat Gaos. & really, after a long fight that is dragged out into the daylight (again), Gamera defeats Gaos & throws him into a nearby volcano.

& the expressway, you might ask (on second thought, you probably might not) - it gets built after all, since inspired by Gamera's goodness the villagers did have a change of heart & sold their land after all.

 

A very stupid looking mosnter & of course another silly story to go with it, but if men in rubbersuits destroying miniature sets posing as  monsters thrashing major cities is your thing (as it is mine), you might like this movie. Only Eiji, the little boy continuously outsmarting the scientists, is raher annoying.
