Eureka Entertainment is to release an Ishirō Honda Double Feature: THE H-MAN & BATTLE IN OUTER SPACE, two classics of Japanese sci-fi cinema, on Blu-ray for the first time on home video in the UK. Released on 16 November as part of The Masters of Cinema Series, featuring a Limited Edition O-Card Slipcase (First Print Run of 2,000 copies only).
In Tokyo, a mysterious radioactive liquid is dissolving people into slimy, sentient, seemingly indestructible, blobs of destruction! Part-Japanese gangster noir, part-gooey body melting horror, The H-Man is one of the most unique sci-fi films of the 1950s.
A series of mysterious catastrophes sweep the globe, causing the world’s scientists to conclude that beings from another planet are attacking Earth, and the world must unite to defend itself in a gigantic battle in outer space! With wonderful special effects sequences by Eiji Tsuburaya, and a rousing score by Akira Ifukube, Battle in Outer Space is a glorious sci-fi extravaganza.
The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present two classics of Japanese sci-fi cinema, both directed by the great Ishirō Honda, for the first time ever on home video in the UK.
