"Aliens from Planet X borrow our monsters for a little extermination project, but they've got something else up their sleeves: world domination. Using mind-control technology, these vinyl-and-sunglasses wearing spacemen turn Godzilla, Rodan and Kiing Ghidorah loose in Japan, demanding Earth's surrender! It's up to American astronaut F. Glenn, his galaxy-trotting buddy Fuji, and nerdy inventor Tetsuo to break the aliens' hold on the monsters and save our planet from certain doom. Invasion of Astro-Monster (1965) represents the pinnacle of Toho's monster cinema, with an all-star cast featuring Nick Adams (The Rebel), Akira Takarada (the original Godzilla) and Kumi Mizuno as alien temptress Namikawa, plus a cavalcade of amazing retro-terrific special effects. Presented in its original, uncut Japanese-language edition, plus the English-dubbed version originally titled Monster Zero in the U.S."--Container

[The H-man]: Police experts investigating sordid drug dealings are stumped when crooks vanish leaving only their clothes behind. No-nonsense Inspector Tominaga (Akihiko Hirata) refuses to give credence to the radical theory of scientist Dr. Masada (Kenji Sahara): radioactivity has transformed six sailors into H-Men, liquid beings that dissolve other humans for food. Alluring nightclub singer Chikako Arai (top-billed Yumi Shirakawa, star of The Mysterians) gets involved because her boyfriend is one of the gangsters thought to have disappeared -- or been liquefied. Two sailors' tale of encountering "living liquid" monsters on a derelict ship is presented in a spooky flashback. The authorities remain unconvinced -- until the H-Men invade Chikako's nightclub, melting gangsters and detectives alike!
