Masters of Cinema takes in a ISHIRŌ HONDA DOUBLE FEATURE: THE H-MAN + BATTLE IN OUTER SPACE (review)

The director of GODZILLA and MOTHRA took a break from big monsters for this pair of science fiction films.  In THE H-MAN, H-bomb tests create a flesh-melting radioactive creature that makes its way from the sea towars Tokyo.  In BATTLE IN OUTER SPACE, aliens attack the Earth and the World Council sends two teams to the moon to destroy the enemy's base before they destroy the world.
