Village of the Giants is the cult 1965 sci-fi comedy from prolific schlockmeister Bert I. Gordon (Food of the Gods, Empire of the Ants), loosely off shot from the novel, Food of the Gods by H. G. Wells. A groovy California partying crowd led by Fred (Beau Bridges) crashes their car in a rainstorm. They turn up the radio, drink beer, and dance in the downpour. Then, they walk to nearby Hainesville for kicks. In the small town (containing no parents), Mike (Tommy Kirk) is smooching with his girlfriend while her little brother Genius (Ronny Howard) works in the basement accidentally mixing a 'Goo' which makes you grow big. The family cat gets into the 'Goo' and grows. Then, they give it to a couple of ducks, who become giant ducks, and quack up the local dance club... Meanwhile, Fred's gang has arrived in time for a feast of giant duck meat. Then, they eat Goo and pop out of their clothes. Setting up shop in the local theater, Fred and the gang decide to take over the town and make Mike, his gum-chewing pal Horsey (Johnny Crawford) and their friends servants. Kirk must save the town from the giant youth. Up for the task, Kirk turns out to be a resourceful and determined leader.moreless
