Product Description

Product Description

Delinquent teen-agers ingest a substance and grow thirty feet tall, then proceed to take over a small town.


The moment Village of the Giants opens, with sensual shots of slow-motion frugging, we know we've happened upon some Bad Teens. In search of kicks, the Bad Teens head into the village of Hainesville, populated by Good Teens, most of whom seem to be in their early 30s. The fun begins when a lovable tyke named Genius (an 11-year-old Ron Howard, by far the most assured actor in the cast) whips up some "goo," which makes anything that eats it grow really big and develop a rakish disregard for scale. Soon these wild Bad Teens, led by a deeply embarrassed Beau Bridges and wearing their rebellious cardigans and Sansabelt pants, get their hands on the stuff. They take over the town and celebrate with some giant slow-motion dancing, complete with lots and lots of footage of giant slow-motion cleavage to make sure we've taken in the full horror of the situation. There is not one disappointing moment in this entire movie: Just when you think it can't possibly get any more ludicrous, it comes through and surprises you with a giant spider in the basement or a plan to distract the teens with yet more sexy dancing. Absolutely not to be missed. --Ali Davis --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Don't let the reviews scare you away: this isn't just a movie about jiggling girls. There's a lot of beefcake for the guys to look at, too.
Good teenager Tommy Kirk, recently outed and evidently taking any role, no matter how feeble, is the putative star, trying to stop a group of evil teenagers from running rampant in his small fifties town. His job is made harder when they ingest something called "goo" that makes them grow to giant size.
Now comes the part of the movie that everyone fast-forwards to: the evil teens are naked at first and then they wear makeshift togas, the boys displaying beautiful, athletic bodies, as they dance in slow motion in the town square. The female teenagers are all but ignored as director Bert I. Gordon (who had a keen eye for beefcake) lingers on the gorgeous Beau Bridges and Tim Rooney (Mickey's son), who is not quite as gorgeous but makes you wish he had appeared in more movies (or at least a centerfold or two).
The boy on the giant breast that everyone keeps mentioning is teen idol Johnny Crawford, recently graduated from "The Rifleman" and soon to display a magnificent physique of his own in "The Naked Ape"; but he's not dancing or being hugged, he's attempting to destroy the giants by catapulting at them with the antidote to the "goo."
The writers should have created a more logical, suspenseful plotline, or else they should have eliminated all pretense at a story and just had Beau Bridges, Tim Rooney, Johnny Crawford, and Tommy Kirk pose in swimsuits for 90 minutes. But it's worthwhile reminding ourselves that directors were making movies for guys long before "Risky Business."

Okay, okay, I know some people might be in disbelief that I actually gave this flick 5 stars, but -- despite its godawfulness -- there's just something mesmerizing about it! The story involves a group of teens (yeah right, more like mid-twenties)who find a potion that turns them into giants. It's campy and the "special effects" are laughingly awful, yet the flick is highly entertaining for a number of reasons: First of all, the bass-driven wierd 60's musical score is great; as is the accompanying sensual dancing of the giants (they really don't know what else to do after becoming giants, so they just dance); the cast -- which includes a young Ron Howard -- is great; and last but certainly not least, the cast includes a young redheaded Toni Basil (who went on to become a one-hit wonder with "Hey Mickey"); Basil is so incredibly sexy and gorgeous, it's worth seeing the movie just for her! Watch out for Basil in a bikini in the pool party scene! So, yeah, overall it's a real turkey, but a golden turkey!

Very loose adaption of "Food of the Gods", as if HG Wells had adapted his work for one of those AIP Beach movies. In this one, a group of cardigan wearing bad-teens led by the evil Beau Bridges descend on a California town, not knowing that the town's resident genius (known as "Genius" and played by Ron Howard) has developed something called goo which causes super-growth. A couple of geese try the stuff and grow to a size slightly smaller than a BMW, amusing and amazing the town before ending up as the guests of honor at a BBQ for a town full of kids who can't spell FDA. In a classic scene, the evil Bridges gang steals the goo and, too delinquent to just sell the stuff to the highest bidder, they eat it. Growing to monstrous size (which is anything bigger than their clothes can stand before tearing off - a logical detail actually working for the plot for once), they take over the town and force its citizens to watch them engage in slow motion dancing (how hard did they have to fight for this town). Led by Tommy Kirk, the good teens try to keep the bad teens at bay until Genius can create a "cure" for the goo. At its worst, the flick is bald exploitation, and good clean fun at best. Most critics slam this as an exploitative version of the Wells book - why the connection was ever made is a mystery to me. The problem is that the producers take this stuff much to seriously - if they had Russ Meyer do it (a guy whose pretty honest of his intentions) it would have been a big cult hit.

This movie is about a two groups of young adults.First we have the bad young adults lead by the a very (I'd say 20-30ish Beau Bridges,judging by the amount of chest hair on him when he grows up to be a giant!) and the good young people lead by Tommy Kirk(Babes in Toyland). One of the good teen siblings(Ron Howard) accidently discovers a food stuff that makes whatever eats into a giant.The good teens accidently let some ducks and a dog eat it. meanwhile the bad teens wreck their car outside of the town where the good teens live. The bad teens decide to go have a good time dancing and causing trouble at a local teen hang out.
There the bad teens learn of Genuis's goo(growth stuff). They plot to find a way to get their hands on it for money etc. Eventually the bad teens sends in a bad teen to steal the goo.They steal it but are discovered by the good teens and a brawl erupts. One of the bad teens escapes during the melee with the giant growth growing food.
Later at a abandoned play theater the bad teens decides to "dare" themselfs to take the goo.Finally Beau Bridges decides that all the bad young adults takes the substance. They all grow to be at least 2 stories high.Here is a example of bad special effects!In this part it looks like they are growing but we cannot tell becuase the film makers covered everyones chest and did a lousy job of making them giants.After they are done growing they get some new clothes(when they grew , they become naked! ) and go out on the town. Also why only one giant with chest hair?They could of got a few more hot hairy peoples besides Beau?Also why not make the good teens giants too and let the town become a battlefield?
