An evil brain from outer space that controls all kinds of mutants, some of whom are able to take human form, and monsters, prepares to invade earth. But earth has its own superhero, Starman, and he has vowed to protect our planet. First, the Simerans, as the brain's mutants are collectively called, try to scare everyone into submission using one of their monsters, but Starman chases the monster away.

Then the Simerans attack an earth scientist and have him then delivered to a hospital that secretly serves as one of their headquarters - where they kill him. Thing is, two kids have witnessed the Simerans attacking the scientist, so they have one of them admitted to the hospital as well - where he finds out what the hospital really is, and is almost killed for doing so ... but Starman comes and saves the day. Unfortunately though, the hospital's head surgeon, who is also a Simeran leader, escapes, and Starman meets him again when he tries to kill a politician at the airport - which ends with the Doctor blowing up himself and the airport, but not before Starman has saved everyone.

Professor Okawa, apparently also a Simeran, has developed the ultimate germ weapon, and his lethal female mutant sees to it that he remains undetected, since the mutant kills everyone only nearing his lab. Then though, one of the assistants of the professor tests the germ on a local woodcutter, which leads Starman to the lab where he fights botht he professor and his mutant to the death before destroying the deadly germ.

In the finale, Starman follows the monster from the beginning of the movie to the Simeran headquaters, fights and defeats everyone in sight, unmasks one of the Simeran leaders only to find him to be a scientist he thought on his side, then finds and destroys the evil brain, which ultimately saves earth - once again.


As you might know, the nine circa one-hour movies of the Japanese Super Giant-series were distilled into 4 circa 75 minute movies for American consumption, with the lead hero being rechristened Starman. Now for the other movies of the series, this worked pretty smoothly, as the Super Giant-movies were mostly two-parters, so they merely had to be spliced together and some superfluous scenes removed - easy enough. However, Evil Brain from Outer Space consists of the three movies of the Super Giant-series that were standalone films and thus each had a self-contained plot with beginning, middle and end. And thus if you splice three self-contained one hour movies together to fit into one 75 minute movie, the results are ... well, let's say choppy.

So yeah, in a way, this film is a trainwreck, a narratively incoherent mess that very often just gets caught up in its story to tie the three seperate plots together without actually advancing the proceedings as such.

Having said that, it is doubtful that anyone would watch any of the Starman films for their narrative brilliance, these are good fun not despite of but because of their slight inconsistencies and silly sci-fi-premises, but also because of their cheap sets, cheesy costumes, crude special effects and basic fight scenes.

So ok, you might hate this one, but it's much more fun to enjoy it ...
