You’re a citizen of the world, right? You know about Japanese cinema. You remember Ringu - that horror film you accidentally rented because you thought it was a kids' show about a penguin. You enjoy the majestic historical spectacles of Akira Kurosawa, even though he clearly ripped all his best bits off westerns. You’ve devoured the melancholy, dream-like animations of Studio Ghibli, waiting for a rude bit with tentacles. You’ve watched all the Godzillas - even the good one and Samuel Beckett’s disappointing Waiting for Godzilla. So why haven’t you seen Warning From Space? Eh? Hmm?

What‘s not to love in a film bringing together a group of giant one-eyed alien starfish, the nail-biting drama of scientific research1, a rogue planet set on a collision course with our Earth, a lavish song and dance number, and a game of tennis with an alien duplicate?

It’s dubbed into English. You won’t need to read or anything.

If that wasn’t enough, you can now experience the movie with the added benefit of two Brits talking in the gaps between the weirdly dubbed Japanese people. Amazingly, many of their bits make more sense than the actual story2, and occasionally manage to be funnier than the alien starfish costumes3.


1 There is less drama in scientific research than you may have been led to believe.

2 Not a huge claim.

3 Massive claim. Your money back if you’re prepared to take us to court in an attempt to dispute it and manage to convince the jury.

This movie sums up everything wrong with human nature in one scene. To sum up that scene:

"Yeah, sure, the Earth will have been destroyed, but the important thing is that I WAS RIGHT!"

Just wanted to let you guys know that Ian and I have finished the writing on the next RiffTrax Presents project and have set the date for recording it. Anyone have any suggestions of movies we should tackle in future?

Would it have to be a VOD? That seems to be the preferred thing at Rifftrax now.

If Rifftrax isn't going to do it, I'd say riff The Giant Claw.

Considering there's been a lack of Kaiju riffs, how about Yongary? https://archive.org/details/Yongary-MonsterFromTheDeep

That movie's just asking for a piñata joke.
