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

After the aliens make their presence known to the world, we find Wally and the kids on the street shining shoes. Wally is reading a newspaper. Jerry Tempura pulls up a few seconds later, the paper he is reading is gone and Jerry gives him one "hot off the press". See more »

Man. So horrible, it's worth the watch.
27 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this on Mystery Science Theatre 3000. I've never laughed so hard in my life, and that's no exaggeration. This is 110% cheese, at it's very best. The overdubbing of English voices is hilarious. Everything about this movie is ridiculous, from the cheesy makeup, to the cheesy laughs, to the same lines used over....and over....and over. And I thought my eardrums were going to bleed after hearing that horrible 'spaceship' sound effect used nearly 1000 times throughout the film. This movie is so bad, it's hilarious. I was able to catch this on MST3K, and they do a wonderful job of just ripping it a new one. The children in this movie are so...so robotic. Horribly amusing. Or maybe just amusingly horrible. You be the judge.

Give it a watch.
