War of the Colossal Beast (1958)

February 16, 2011

This is another Burt Gordon screenplay, special effects, producing and directing picture which is a sequel to the Amazing Colossal Man except he has stopped growing and is suffering from the fall and bombing he received to end the first picture. His sister is there to try and protect him from any harm. It doesn’t seem to matter that other people around him are killed only that he not be hurt or harmed.  As a result he decides to take his own life at the end by electrocuting himself as there is no solution as to what to do with him.  The special effects are quite dated but can really be overlooked if some kind of plot was written into the movie.  I’ve included an audio clip (with sound effects) from the main title of the movie. If you can get a bargain( seen it for under $5) especially if it is coupled with Earth vs Spider it might be worth having in your collection. Otherwise pass.
