Directed by Ishirō Honda. Written by Takeshi Kimura, partially based on William H. Hodgson's short story "The Voice in the Night".
Attack of the Mushroom People  (taglines)


  • Attack of the Mushroom People


  • I like ATTACK OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE very much. I think the drama, rather than the special effects or the makeup, is what makes it entertaining. Fans who are in their mid-thirties always tell me that when they were children, they became terrified of eating mushrooms after they saw the movie. I very much enjoyed working on ATTACK OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE. I remember that Mr. Honda spent a long period of time explaining what the film was really about. There were many American soldiers in Japan during the Vietnam War. Almost every one of them who ran into me said, "I know you!" I would always ask in which film they'd seen me, and they always would say that it was ATTACK OF THE MUSHROOM PEOPLE.
