Default Matango: Attack Of The Mushroom People (1963)

A group of friends are sailing on the yacht when a storm blows them off course and damages the boat. They soon land on a deserted island where they find a deserted, fungus covered wreck. They then find out that it was a research vessel examining the effects of radiation on plant and animal life. However, they also discover a strange fungus dubbed Matango. They also find out that the crew ate some of the fungus and were somehow driven mad. The group then goes about trying to find food and water without succumbing to the lure of the mushrooms. However, one by one they soon are driven by their hunger and desires to eat the mushrooms with disastrous effects.
this trailer is a shit dubbed one but for **** sake dont watch this film dubbed! make sure you get the subbed version!

This film is a must see for fans of b-movies or Japanese films in general, i love it! pure cheese fest! if you dont enjoy this film take your ass to see a doctor because there is something seriously wrong with you.

This would be the ultimate horror for my 9-year-old son, he hates mushrooms with a vengeance!

A rather loony but dreamlike film, if I remember. Remake this bugger ... if you dare
