Movie Info

Based on the same H.G. Wells story as his later Food of the Gods, this silly but good-looking fantasy from Bert I. Gordon is among his more entertaining films. The young Ron Howard plays Genius, who develops a substance which causes animals to grow to monstrous size. After eight kids (led by Beau Bridges and Tisha Sterling) crash their car in the mud, they dance and get drunk, then steal some food containing the growth-gunk, causing them to attain huge physical size as well. It's up to the good

I'm certainly not going to try to claim that Gordon's 1965 film is any good, but it's such a mash-up of genres.. that you'd have to be a real grouch to not find some fun in it.

Audience Reviews for Village of the Giants

This has got to be the craziest teen movie of the sixties, in terms of plot I mean. A kid is working on a growth formula, teens accidentally take some and become giants who try to take over the world? Wow. This would be a good movie if these teens didn't spend half the movie dancing around and saying stupid lines. The ending is even more disappointing. I wouldn't recommend this movie.
