Chief Inspector Wakabayashi of the Tokyo Police is confronted with a seemingly impossible murder which took place aboard an airliner. It may be linked to a recent wave of unsolved killings. Meanwhile, his old friend Dr. Tsukioka, who's working with famous physicist Prof. Hayakawa and engaged to Hayakawa's daughter, Akiko, has accidentally discovered the secret of invisibility in the course of his cosmic ray research. A clue left at a bank robbery in which the thief somehow got past locked doors and barred windows without a sign of a break-in, stabbed a guard and made off with several million yen in cash leads Wakabayashi and his men to the Club Asia. Its owner, Kuroki, denies any involvement with criminals. Two more stabbings follow: First, a secretary who works for successful businessman Kusunoki, and then the bartender at the Club Asia. In both cases, no assailant was seen, but the buzzing of a fly was heard. The attacks are being committed by a man named Yamada, who works for ...
Scientists with human flies battle scientists with an invisible ray
There are a series of mysterious stabbing deaths in post war Tokyo. Yet no attacker was seen or could have gained entry. Police investigate. They find that the deaths are preceded by buzzing sounds. A group of Japanese scientists were working on cosmic ray research during war and one (Kuroki) feels he was sold out by the others. He spend 6 years in prison and wants to get even. He has a gas that shrinks humans to fly size so they can do his dirty work. Another Scientist has developed a ray that makes objects invisible. A cop uses it on himself and while invisible discovers what Kuroki is up to. But Kuroki finds out about the invisible ray and wants it. This is a film with good acting, audio and video quality. Even the fake cosmic ray lab is realistic. But it is all lost when we see the tiny shrunken man flying around in his business suit, without wings making buzzing sounds. It is so completely unbelievable that it's hilarious. In Japanese with English subtitles. Black and White.
