THE INVISIBLE MAN VS. THE HUMAN FLY

Mitsuo Murayama, Japan, 1957, Arrow Films, Cult

“One of the earliest surviving science fiction films from Japan, and one of the earliest examples of that country’s tokusatsu (special effects) cinema.” -- Pieter-Jan Van Haecke, EASTERN KICKS

Finally released outside Japan for the first time, this unique riff on H.G. Wells’ classic character and Universal’s iconic series is a jewel of the early Daiei Studios output, and a subtle portrayal of the post-WWII American occupation following Hiroshima/Nagasaki. Eight years after THE INVISIBLE MAN APPEARS, this exciting second chapter tells of mysterious murders where the only clue is a strange buzzing noise at the scene of the crime. Could this be linked to secret wartime experiments in shrinking humans to insect size? And can a scientist who’s just invented an invisibility ray be the one to stop it?
