The X from Outer Space is the English release of a 1967 Japanese kaiju film called Big Space Monster Guilala

The spaceship AAB Gamma is dispatched from Japan to travel to Mars to investigate reports of UFOs in the area.

Samples are taken back to earth where one of them begins to develop…into a giant, lizard-like creature dubbed “Guilala.” The monster begins a reign of destruction through Tokyo
