Hell hath no fury like when the mysterians roll into town. “The Mysterians” marked Toho studios first foray into the alien invasion plot, a device that would eventually spill over into their “Godzilla” franchise. Speaking of “Godzilla”, what’s a Toho film without a giant monster and Kaiju fans graced with a dorky looking giant robot that would eventually re-appear in the film “Godzilla v.s SpaceGodzilla” making a very loose conection between “The Mysterians” and the “Godzilla” franchise. Even a loose connection is enough to make this enjoyably campy sci fi invasion film part of my forever long “Godzilla Tokyo Stompathon”, an almost never ending process of viewing and reviewing every “Godzilla” entry and related films.
