31 Days of Horror: Film #30 MATANGO (AKA ATTACK OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE)
As you may or may not know, I’m a big Godzilla fan and a fan of Japanese cinema in general. Matango is a cult-classic horror film from Japan, directed by Ishiro Honda, the man behind the original (and best) Godzilla film.
The film is a bit like Gilligan’s Island meets The Thing. It’s always been a personal favorite of mine. I wrote a full review for Matango over at City on Fire, a website specializing in Asian cinema. Read that review here.
