Village of the Giants (Special Edition)
Directed by Bert I. Gordon
A small town runs into big problems when teenagers hit a growth spurt, turn into gallivanting Goliaths, lead an anti-elder rebellion and terrify anyone under seven feet tall! Featuring Hollywood teen stars Tommy Kirk (The Shaggy Dog), Johnny Crawford (TV’s The Rifleman), Ron Howard (TV’s Happy Days) and Beau Bridges (The Landlord), this fantastic, effects-laden tale delivers gargantuan, sexy entertainment loaded with rock ‘n’ roll. Eleven-year-old Genius (Howard) mixes up some super-goo with his chemistry set, turning cats and ducks into giants. When a group of wild teenagers see the results, they gobble it up too and turn into towering tyrants, challenging adults and making mayhem while the world desperately searches for an anti-teen antidote. It’s the teen scene you’ve never seen—from cult legend Bert I. Gordon, the director of The Cyclops, The Amazing Colossal Man, Attack of the Puppet People, The Magic Sword and Picture Mommy Dead. The stellar cast includes Joe Turkel (The Shining), Joy Harmon (Cool Hand Luke), Tisha Sterling (Coogan’s Bluff) and Toni Basil (Easy Rider).
