Goke, Body Snatcher From Hell

Goke, Body Snatcher From Hell

After an airplane is forced to crash-land in a remote area, its passengers find themselves face-to-face with an alien force that wants to possess them body and soul—and perhaps take over the entire human race. Filled with creatively repulsive effects—including a very invasive bloblike life-form—Hajime Sato’s Goke, Body Snatcher from Hell is a pulpy, apocalyptic gross-out.

Eclipse Series 37: When Horror Came to Shochiku

For a brief, shining moment, the genteel Japanese studio mutated into a fun house of grim ghouls and slimy aliens.
