Another good entry in the series, this one here takes a look at giants. Christopher Lee once again hosts the film and gives us a brief intro surrounding giants in fairy tales but then we're off to the movies as we get clips from countless films including DR. CYCLOPS, THE CYCLOPS, THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD, VILLAGE OF THE GIANTS, EMPIRE OF THE ANTS, THEM!, THE BLACK SCORPION, ATTACK OF THE 50FT. WOMAN, BEGINNING OF THE END and several others.
As with other films in the series, it's doubtful die-hard horror fans are going to learn anything new as this isn't so much a documentary but instead just a look through the genre. Those already familiar with the movies will at least be entertained by the clips and it's always nice getting to see some of the people behind these movies talking about them. William Schallert, Gordon Hessler, Hugh Hefner, Gloria Talbot, Richard Denning, John Agar and Michael Curtis are among the people interviewed. None of the interviews are extremely long but they're all pleasant enough and fans will enjoy seeing them. Those unfamiliar with this genre, which was at it's power during the 50s, will get a lot of great ideas for films to check out and this is highly recommended to them.
