Attack of the 50 Foot Woman 12/03/22

The Warner Archive Collection

Only once in a generation do we behold a classic such as this!  The ’embiggened’ adventures of Nancy Archer lack technical sophistication, but good direction and a very direct story — female revenge writ large — grab us every time. Let the absurdities pile up, because Allison Hayes cuts a mean fifty-foot figure in that white two-piece, and saucy Yvette Vickers can really warm up the clientele down at Tony’s place. It’s a terrific piece of late ’50s exploitation anti-art, and its fantastic Reynold Brown poster is a key expression of an entire monsterrific worldview. On Blu-ray from The Warner Archive Collection.
