The Mysterians 1957 PG

85 mins Japan Director. Ishiro Honda

The appearance of a giant destructive robot near Mount Fuji heralds the arrival of the Mysterians, an extra-terrestrial race from a planet destroyed by nuclear war. A group of scientists accept a request to meet the visitors at their dome-like base, but soon discover that the aliens’ intentions are far from benign.

The creative team behind Godzilla (1954) was reunited for Toho’s first colour widescreen sci-fi, an arresting and vibrant vision of futuristic warfare and a cautionary tale for the atomic age.
