Description

One of the best-remembered sci-fiers from the Fifties, this was shot to capitalize on the unexpected success of THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN. Col. Glen Manning leaves his protective trench during the delayed countdown to an awesome plutonium test explosion and is caught full force in the radiation. This causes him to grow from eight to ten feet per day . . . except his heart can't keep up and he eventually goes insane due to lack of bloodflow to the brain. Many atmospheric moments and basically a lot of fun, tho, as with most Bert I. Gordon flicks, the special effects often suck, leaving Glen seeming more like The Amazing Transparent Man. A rite of passage for every sci-fi/horror-lovin' kid.
