Attack of the 50-Foot Woman (1957) Reviewed

The touch of a giant man-shaped alien turns a scorned drunk into the title creature. With revenge on her mind and people under foot, the movie’s heroine spends the second half of this B classic going after her philandering hubbie and his hot-to-trot girlfriend (bad girl hottie, Yvette Vickers, in a role similar to the one she played in Attack of the Giant Leeches). The giant hand effects are great and the to-scale model city looks good beneath the 5-FW. The sci-fi elements come second to the silly melodrama but Attack is a must for giant monster fans. Avoid the 90s remake with Daryl Hannah. For more gargantuan fun see also the Amazing Colossal Man.
