Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Toho Triple Feature: Mysterians Varan & Matango [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I bought this one for Matango (subtitle: Attack of the Mushroom People in this edition, Fungus of Terror when it played Sunderland back in the Sixties) because it wasn't much more expensive to buy the triple pack than the single dvd. It's a strange dream-like piece of work, slow paced but never dull, following a group of people shipwrecked on a strange island and gradually succumbing to hunger, in-fighting, and the effects of Matango the fungus. The climax is quite surreal. Well worth a watch.

Varan (the Unbelievable) is for die-hard kaiju fans only being a 1958 b/w Godzilla-clone. It's not without some entertainment value on a wet weekend afternoon but that's about it.

The Mysterians is widescreen primary colour big budget (relatively speaking for a Japanese 1957 movie) alien invasion fare featuring humanoid aliens in costumes that strangely resemble the much later Power Rangers. It's dated but quite good fun.

No doubt about it, for strangeness and originality, Matango rules.
