American Evil Brain from Outer Space DVD cover

The American companies Walter Manley Enterprises and Medallion Films purchased the rights to the 9 Super Giant films and edited them together into 4 English films for television. Super Giant: The Space Mutant Appears, Super Giant Continues: The Devil's Incarnation, and Super Giant Continues: The Poison Moth Kingdom were edited in to Evil Brain from Outer Space. Since all three of the original films are meant to be standalone stories, three radically different plots had to be combined in to one cohesive story. Within the film, this is often helped along by the narration, which often further explains plot points which would otherwise be left as plot holes. Another large issue in combining the films arose from the fact that Super Giant: The Space Mutant Appears was filmed in black and white and fullscreen, while the remaining two films were filmed in color and widescreen. The final product, as described by kaiju historian August Ragone, is "an alternately mind-blowing and mind-numbing adventure... a non-ending cavalcade of characters, chases, captures, rescues and fight scenes."

Even Japanese Wikipedia doesn't have individual pages for these films. It just has a Super Giant page and briefly lists all the films.
