Storyline

A Group of space men from the planet Krankor who resemble chickens are led by their leader, Phantom to invade Earth. But a strange superhero named Prince of Space (actually a bootblack in disguise) arrives to defeat the spacemen. Although the weapons of the aliens cannot harm the Prince of Space, the Phantom continues to fight, and many plot twists (including capturing a group of elderly scientists) ensue. Watch out for the Giant! Written by Tim Fox <foxagency@accs.net>

Trivia

Like Shintoho's "Super Giant/Starman" series, this Toei production was released to theaters as a sort of mini-serial with two approximately hour-long episodes. In the US this was edited into a single feature film running less than 90 minutes. See more »

Goofs

Krankor is allowed to escape after he threatens to kill a boy. As he starts running up the stairs, the boy (who is standing next to him) starts following him up the stairs, realizes he's supposed to stay where he is, and stops. See more »

Quotes

Phantom of Krankor: I am the Phantom of Krankor. Ha ha ha ha.

A cool movie for fun
8 January 2000 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Hah hah hah hah hah Yes this movie is bad but good. I especially like the Brooklyn accent on that Japanese kid ("Whats wrong with boot-blacking? We like it very much") M&TB down at MST3K gave this movie a good punishment but its so unintentionaly funny at times you will roll on the floor with laughter. See this movie or else you will feel empty inside for all eternity.
