X from Outer Space (1967)

X from Outer Space is a 1967 kaiju film released by the Japanese film studio Shochiku. It was the first of its kind released by Shochiku, and was one of the many giant monster films made during the late '60s "monster boom" in Japan.
...and it had spacemen in it too.

  2. This film recently aired on Turner Classic Movies. I can't believe I never noticed this before. These are the same helmets that appear in The Green Slime. I believe the visors are darker on the helmets that are worn in The Green Slime. This is interesting, because we're talking about two different studios. Obviously there was some friendly sharing between Toei and Shochiku.
