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

You have to love the scene with the Beau Brummels. While someone can rightfully call this dreck, it is beyond entertaining, at least it was to me. Part of my massive enjoyment of this movie comes with the ridiculousness of it.

A film that has more dancing and skimpy out-fits than sense. The effects are cheesy, the characters are even worse, and the plot is slow and dumb. The ending is utterly shameless and resolves nothing serious.

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.
