Attack of the 50 Foot Woman

Director:  Nathan Juran
Year Released:  1958
Rating:  1.0

A giant bubble containing a tall bald man comes to Earth and infects wealthy drunkard Nancy Archer (Allison Hayes) with radiation, so she grows to massive proportions and squeezes cheating hubby Harry (William Hudson) to death. Sure, the "effects" are tacky (the giants are transparent in long shots, the huge plaster hands made me laugh) and you can't say anything positive about the acting, but what's so wrong about a ticked-off giantess getting revenge against a drunken bum who treated her like garbage and even tried to poison her? If you must watch this, make sure you have multiple drinks in your system, it's well past midnight and you're borderline delirious from fatigue.
