This Japanese production (distributed state-wise by the immortal Medallion T.V.) is about some cone-headed aliens who land in Japan and attack nasal Japanese children. Why I say this is a rip-off of "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" is for one thing, the aliens speak in slow-motion, and they even borrow stock footage from the rocket attack scene in that same film! And the dubbing! Those children will drive any sane person to suicide with all their shrieks and grunts. Some of the lines that come out of their mouths ("Nespa!" or "Hey! Those little chicks! Look!") are unintentionally hilarious. Oh, did I mention the superhero Space Chief (who never flies above 400 feet and is played by Street fighter Sonny Chiba)? Pitiful.
But the MST3K version of this is very funny indeed. Pop that version in one night when your tired and pour yourself a soda. Their comments ("The sewage plant is such a fun place to play!" or "It's a nauseating shorts detector!") Will have you rolling in the aisles. Enjoy.
