Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 1931 ratings.
The cover art on this Alpha DVD looked interesting so I bought a copy. The film is really very good for a Japanese Sci Fi/Thriller from the late 1950's. The effects are good, the dubbing not bad and the monsters are very strange indeed! The sound on this has a fair amount of pops and crackles, but this adds to the "feel" of the film and won't detract form the enjoyment!
This is a very interesting Japanese take on the 'invasion' story since the aliens are benign and the main alien protagonist is female, transmogrified from her cheap but effective one-eyed starfish shape to a super-powered female in order to save the Earth.
It's a highly enjoyable romp with some good action sequences.
Yes. This one I remember as a kid as being very scary(early 70's). Something with the eye of these star-shaped aliens. Very campy and very nostalgic. Love the part of alien, who becomes a girl and acts like she has amnesia and plays tennis, leaping 10 feet! Into the air, to return a volley. Ha!! I love these types of movies and I recommend this one.
