Taiwan Noir 24: Mars Men & Superriders Against The Devils


The Asian film industry of the mid 70s was infused with the spirit of sharing–or, at least, borrowing. And often without permission. One of the results of this was a series of incredibly strange hybrid superhero films that were just as likely to include figures from Thai folklore as they were mad scientists and damsels in distress. In this episode therefore we’ll be discussing two of these pan-Asian franken-films, Mars Men and Superriders Against The Devils.
