Based on a novel by H. G. Wells, a group of bloodthirsty, oversized creatures (including rats, chickens, wasps, and worms) have taken over a remote island after ingesting a mysterious growth known as "Food of the Gods." It is up to an unusual group of people to put an end to this animal threat. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

Back in her glory days at Warner Bros., Ida Lupino never could have imagined that a movie role would require her to wring her hands, bug her eyes and make this fervent prayer: 'I won't never sin again, never. Only don't let no rat eat us, please, God!'
Schlocky, schlocky sci-fi/horror, circa 1976. And it stars Marjoe Gortner. Say more?
without even a hint of irony, fun, thrills, imagination, or anything else approaching entertainment
When it comes to making bad giant-animals-attack movies, nobody touches Bert.
Not content with having made a mess of this earlier, Gordon tries again.
Mosquitos that can puncture a man's entire head. How can you go wrong with that, I ask you.
Giant animal silliness.
