This early "idol" movie by genre master Nobuhiko Obayashi (House) features Hiroko Yakushimaru, then the heart-throb of millions of Japanese fans, as a spunky teen defending her high school from infiltration and domination by fascistic aliens. The action is more mind-bendingly fantastic than soberly scientific, featuring delightfully bizarre effects designed by Obayashi himself.

1981, 90 min., DCP, color, in Japanese with live English subtitles. Directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi. With Hiroko Yakushimaru, Ryoichi Takayanagi, Toru Minegishi, Makoto Tezuka.
