The War of the Colossal Beast ★½ The Terror Strikes 1958

This sequel to “The Amazing Colossal Man” finds the 70-foot Colonel Manning even angrier at the attempts to kill him than he was in the first film. So he wreaks more havoc until scolded by his sister into committing suicide for being such a troublemaker. Cheesy special effects but good for a laugh. 68m/B VHS, DVD . Dean Parkin, Sally Fraser, Russ Bender, Roger Pace, Charles Stewart; D: Bert I. Gordon.
