Product Description:

Japan's Toho film studio was renowned for its roster of post-war monster movies, especially those of director Ishiro Honda, who created the Godzilla film series with the help of special-effects director Eiji Tsuburaya. This collection includes a trio of Honda's classic creature-features, presented in both their U.S. and Japanese versions as well as their original Tohoscope aspect ratios. In THE H-MAN (1958), a radioactive liquid turns people into slimy blobs that begin to reproduce and clutter up Tokyo's sewer system. In BATTLE IN OUTER SPACE (1959), humanity unites to fend off invading aliens in flying saucers. And in MOTHRA (1961), Tokyo once again faces destruction when a giant caterpillar crawls into town to save tiny twin sisters from the clutches of entrepreneurs out to exploit them.

Product Description:

Toho, the most famous of all Japanese movie studios, first made its name in the West for the
extraordinary masterworks of Akira Kurosawa. But they really struck box office gold with the wildly colorful kaiju eiga (monster movies) that began in 1954 with the original GODZILLA (Gojira), the creation of director Ishiro Honda and special effects wizard Eiji Tsuburaya. Now for the first time on DVD -- and in their original Tohoscope aspect ratios -- Sony Pictures presents three Honda classics that display the enormous breadth of the Toho magic during its glory years. The H-Man, Battle in Outer Space and Mothra are presented in both their Japanese and U.S. versions. So travel back to the days before CGI, when special effects were real and the results were spectacular!
