Revealing mistake: When the girl on the motorcycle is trying to tie Mike's legs together by driving around them in circles, his legs are obviously props. Later that evening, Mike and Nancy return home to find that a giant spider has apparently nibbled a bit of Genius’ goo. We see early on that the only thing on Mike’s mind is to exploit and make money off of the goo. but there are nagging issues even within the movie’s own silly, natural laws-defying universe: *  The scale of the giants is all over the place. There’s even a bit of social satire attempted, as giant-Fred announces to the sheriff that the townspeople all have “freedom of speech… so long as we approve of what you say.”   Nice try, but I sincerely doubt that first amendment rights are the first thing on the rebel kids’ minds, and more like the screenwriter’s.

Star Trek Discovery S1.10, “Despite Yourself”…, Trekker Treat? “Village of the Giants” (VOTG) was one of Gordon’s more unusual films that was a bit outside of the director’s typical monster-movie stable. The dance sequences feel like interminable script-padding. Most of the kids in attendance seem strangely unfazed by the sight of car-sized ducks having their tails yanked by unseen wires (no movie animal protection in those days). The result was a truly odd duck of a movie (and yes, it does feature giant ducks) that is more camp and far less serious than Gordon’s typical, scarier giant people/creature/spider flicks. Director Bert I. Gordon (yes, his initials make him Mr. BIG…haha) was a low-budget filmmaker in the drive-in, Jack Arnold-style who secured a reputation for himself making really BIG movies; movies about giant, bald, irradiated men in diapers (“Cyclops,” “Amazing Colossal Man,” “War of the Colossal Beast”), giant arachnids/insects (“The Spider” “Beginning of the End”), giant rodents (“Food of the Gods”) and in the one I remember all too well from my warped childhood, “Village of the Giants” (1965).

The next day, the sheriff and Mike (was he newly deputized?) He’s stopped by Fred, who decides that they must ALL take a piece (“Nobody chickens out!”). At this point, Mike’s had enough of that; he smashes a chair across giant Fred’s  fiberglass-prop legs, and shouts, “Tell her to put him down, or I’ll beat the daylights out of ya!”  The next scene is arguably the best in the entire film as giant-Fred bitch slaps Tommy Kirk’s Mike into next week….

We have definitely decided around here that "Village Of The Giants" is one of the best 'worst movies' ever made; so extra BIG, it's overflowing!

And of course, we know that these so-called teens are bad apples because well, they drink Blatz beer, blast their car’s AM radio, and dance in the mud.

Delinquent teen-agers ingest a substance and grow thirty feet tall, then proceed to take over a small town. During the dancing, Merrie grabs a townie (Johnny Crawford of “The Rifleman” TV show) and leaves him hanging onto her giant bra for dear life (I’m not making this stuff up; look ^).

It stars Beau Bridges, Tony Basil, Mickey Rooney's son (Tim), and the kid from TVs "The Rifleman" (Who learns first … The songs aren’t entirely horrible, they only serve to stall the hell out of an already unevenly-paced movie. They wouldn't even fit through the door if they could open it. Is such a guy really the right person to assume ownership of his girlfriend’s brother’s clearly dangerous invention? Bert I. Gordon was a famous B-movie director who created a bunch of big monster movies such as Earth Vs.The Spider and The Amazing Colossal Man in the 1950’s, but by the early 1960’s that genre was dying a quick death.

It all begins when a familiar–looking boy genius cooks up a formula that causes BIG trouble in what becomes the “Village of the Giants”! Even today, that soundtrack works. His music for the teen’s ‘growth’ scene has a nice undercurrent of menace to it, beginning with low strumming electric guitars segueing into loud brass as they become giants. Johnny Crawford then oh-so bravely volunteers to jump spider-like onto giant-Merrie’s boobs again (some might think Bert I. Gordon was a fetishist), and in a disturbingly post-Bill Cosby scene, he renders her unconscious with a giant cotton wad soaked in anesthetic, as he climbs down off of her makeshift bikini bra…. Mike clocks a dazed Fred as soon as he’s man-sized again. Despite those moments throughout that are intentionally or unintentionally amusing, there are large stretches of the movie that are quite dull. There are scenes that try to make the audience feel some genuine dread of the giants, but they move so slooooowwwwly that they have all the menace of an approaching garbage truck from three miles away.

The dance sequences feel like interminable script-padding. Nancy, meanwhile, is with her boyfriend Mike, while her younger brother "Genius" plays wi… At this point, we’re supposed to bear in mind that this opportunist, exploitative, hyper-capitalistic little creep is one of ‘the good guys.’  These good guys now have a giant cat, a giant dog and two giant ducks that somehow wander off the premises (they disappear only moments after they grew…you’d think they’d be rather difficult to lose track of, but I guess not). He was a character…. He then shatters a dangling lightbulb to drop the open bulb socket onto the wet floor and electrocute the creature; which somehow completely disappears in the very next shot (don’t ask how; the movie is chock full of bizarre sh!t like that…).
