In Tokyo, a mysterious radioactive liquid is dissolving people into slimy, sentient, seemingly indestructible, blobs of destruction! Part-Japanese gangster noir, part-gooey body melting horror, The H-Man (Bijo to Ekitai-ningen Beauty and the Liquid People ) is one of the most unique sci-fi films of the 1950s. A series of mysterious catastrophes sweep the globe, causing the world s scientists to conclude that beings from another planet are attacking Earth, and the world must unite to defend itself in a gigantic battle in outer space! With wonderful special effects sequences by Eiji Tsuburaya (Godzilla, Ultraman), and a rousing score by Akira Ifukube (Godzilla), Battle in Outer Space is a glorious sci-fi extravaganza. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present two classics of Japanese sci-fi cinema, both directed by the great Ishir Honda, for the first time ever on home video in the UK.
