Based on a novel by H. G. Wells, a group of bloodthirsty, oversized creatures (including rats, chickens, wasps, and worms) have taken over a remote island after ingesting a mysterious growth known as "Food of the Gods." It is up to an unusual group of people to put an end to this animal threat. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

Toxic stuff makes rodents, chickens, wasps & worms bigger!! Quite odd, but entertaining in a way!! There is a sequel to this that was made in the late 80's!! I guess in the 70's the movie was considered scary,nowadays, you can laugh at it!!! If you want a b movie with giant animals that eat people,then this is the movie for you!!
This movie was funny, but Im sure was scary for Era. Though it doesn't compare to night of the Lepus seeing giant rats getting shot-gunned has a certain fun factor it. The only flaw of the movie is that the Giant Wasps appear as black smudges in certain scenes, and the scene where the Wasp hide explodes was kind of like yeh ok. Otherwise for back in the day the effects and camera angles and the live puppetry were done well. Worth the rent if u are movie buff who appreciates pre CGI era flicks.
Any movie featuring giant animals attacking people can't get a serious review. This is an old B-movie that probably got some laughs when it came out. I liked Marjoe Gortner getting angry and scared at a giant chicken! Funny, campy, low-budget and fun.
