This made-for-cable remake of the cult favorite 1957 film of the same name is updated with an even more feminist slant and has a more thoughtful (and clever) script. Nancy Archer (Darryl Hannah) is a rich but troubled young woman married to a cheating lowlife who only stays with her for her money. She is driving home by herself one night when an alien spaceship lands on the road. She is irradiated by the ship and over the next few days starts to grow taller and taller, until she reaches a height of 50 feet. She uses her newfound height (and power) to take revenge on those who have wronged her -- especially husband Harry (Daniel Baldwin) and the trashy, gold-digging bimbo (Christi Conaway) he has taken up with. ~ Brian Gusse, Rovi
This is a bad remake of a low budget movie. The original was okay for it's time because the special effects were as expected. This remake looked amateurish. Considering movie technology of the early 90s, this movie should have been made a lot better than it was even if it was made for television. I wasn't sure if the remake was also supposed to be set in the 50s or the 90s since the sheriff was driving a very outdate car and the stupidity of the female deputy was, well, stupid.
