Matango

First off this should not ever be referred to as 'Attack of the Mushroom People' anymore, it creates expectations of a straightforward "monsters attack" (let alone kaiju) movie, which this is not. This I'd argue is far more interesting if you go in willing to be surprised. Body horror, cabin fever, social commentary (though that isn't new for Honda), it's got a bit of everything and there's an eerie, brooding vibe throughout the entire thing that would've been wasted on a less patient movie. Matango shows you the mold of human nature, knowing there's no way to fight conformity.
