Movie Info

This freaky Japanese spin on Invasion of the Body Snatchers stars Teru Yoshida as an airline pilot who loses control of his plane after it passes through a strange, ethereal cloud, forcing him to make an emergency desert landing. Though the passengers seem to have emerged unscathed, one of them (Hideo Ko) is revealed as a carrier for a gelatinous alien being -- a kind of energy vampire which enters its host through a grotesque cleft in the forehead -- and begins preying on the life-force of the

An astonishment from start to finish, from its vivid opening shot of a passenger plane in an obviously artificial sky that resembles a 'sea of blood' to the complementary final image of an invading armada of flying saucers.

Iron-clad-nutso proof that a film can be simultaneously ridiculous and smart, and should not be confused for disposable camp.

Audience Reviews for Kyuketsuki Gokemidoro (Body Snatcher from Hell)(Goke the Vampire)

This is far from a perfect film, nevertheless, it's so effective at throwing disturbing visions and assaulting the viewer with grotesque imagery that it ends up being very memorable.

It's one of those films that will remind you why some of the earlier horror films where so innovative and riveting; it's because the cast and crew truly cared about the film they were making. It totally encompasses everything that made the 60's a great decade for horror films, not only at home, but abroad as well.

Wonderful, pulpy and highly effective anti-war horror. A cool monster and some creepy and wacky effects. Like what Darabont did with characters in The Mist, only 40 years earlier. Fun stuff with an excellent serious side.
