Bad, bad, bad 70s Japanese regular-guy-turns-into-giant-robot-esq show. The highlight (other than the great cheesy monsters) is the main villains. These are two guys in ape masks keeping traditional Japanese theatre alive through the over-use of hand gestures. Wonderfully campy, Spectreman makes the special effects in Power Rangers look like Episode III (but at least the acting is better).

      I found a torrent of this show on the internet, do a search and you can find it easy. I'm watching it this week.

      I've not seen this in over 23 years.

      Use to come home and watch it after school on tv.

      Too bad this show is only available on bootleg dvd. Cost start at $60 bucks and goes up. Probably will never see a region 1 dvd release.

                I love this show. The show came out in the 70's so of course it dosen't have good effect by today's standards. This used to rock back then. To be honest I think it still has good effects considering when it came out. I enjoy it even today.

                  Man, I've been trying to remember the name of this show for years! I had finally come to the conclusion that the show I rememberd was Ultraman.
                  But as soon as I saw the pointy head and the two monkey guys I knew this was it. I love this site.
