Mushroom men and Body Snatchers

I'm on a bit of a Japanese monster movie kick.



Found this movie on DVD at the big Half Price books on NWHWY in Dallas; this film is actually part of a series of films that focus on Yokai, monsters from Japanese folklore.


MATANGO! ATTACK OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE! available at the SVA Library.


Saw this on IFC this past Friday; after seeing the opening scenes of bloody birds throwing themselves at airplane windows i knew i had to watch this. This movie is an adaptation of the original 1956 Invasion of the Body Snatchers featuring great 1960s over saturated color and really cool visuals.
