Movie Info

While overseeing the atomic tests in the Nevada desert, Army colonel Glenn Manning (Glenn Langan) is exposed to extensive amounts of radiation. As a result, Manning grows, and grows, and grows, at the rate of ten feet per day. This sudden height gain adversely affects the poor man's mind, and soon he's as mad as a hatter. Looking for all the world like Mr. Clean in a diaper, the Colossal Man goes on a murderous rampage, laying waste to numerous landmarks. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

While Langan's work as the mentally unraveling colossal man is impressive, there's little else here save for genre bric-a-brac.

Campy sci-fi romp with vintage Vegas cachet.

Goofy ol' giant-guy sci-fi tale.

What the film failed to do, was be anything but cynical.
