Attack of the 50 Foot Woman

Attack of the 50 Foot Woman is a 1958 opposite to the 1957 Incredible Shrinking Man. A monster movie of sorts, the Woman in the title grows increasingly larger and seeks vengeance on her philandering husband and his girlfriend. Aliens are responsible. They need diamonds.

This film can be watched at LiveVideo, but I can't get it embedded here.

Moria calls it
a bad film with an incredible notoriety, something that has of course perversely gained it a cult of admirers. It is not really a very good film – in fact is an extremely bad one with little in the way of the redeemingly bad.
and says it
is fascinating to watch for the complete lack of conviction the special effects have.

    I am _so_ glad that you were able to ferret out this classic. It is, of course, the perfect compliment to _The Cyclops._

  2. You think so? But the 50 foot woman was perfectly formed and gets her man in the end. Alas, poor Cyclops was not so fortunate....
