Warning from space., 31 July 2004
Author: Michael O'Keefe from Muskogee OK

Originally released in Japan as UNKNOWN SATELLITE OVER TOKYO. Astronomers in Japan discovers an extraterrestrial satellite orbiting in space. Aliens visit Earth to warn of impending doom. The visitors arrive by flying saucers first believed to be meteorites. The aliens that look like giant one-eyed starfish have the ability to assume human form. The visitors bring a desperate message concerning a runaway planet on a collision course with Earth that would by all means destroy our world. The aliens do have a plan. Tidal waves engulf cities like Tokyo and London causing chaos in the streets. Human scientists combine their technology with the exceptional alien brainpower to save this planet Earth. The special effects are somewhat comical...especially the baggy starfish costumes. Starring in this Japanese Sci-Fi are: Keizo Kawasaki, Toyomi Karita, Isao Yamagata and Bontaro Miyake.
