Flicks: War Of The Collosal Beast (1958)


I'm a BIG monster and I gotta BIG appetite - for destruction!

Another American International Pictures Atomic Era picture featured the giant man-monster from 1957 movie The Amazing Colossal Man. The 60 foot tall zombie, the former Lt. Col. Glenn Manning, sacks the Old Mexico countryside for truckloads of tortillas until he is captured by the U.S. Army before breaking loose and attacking Hollywood and L.A.

Does the Collosal Beast have a thang against the 50's era film production industry or what? The movie is 99% black-and-white before inexplicably going to color in the final minute as the lumbering retard electrocutes himself in some power lines. A classic!
