The Amazing Colossal Man (1957)

How bad is it? It's worse than Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman.

Should you see it? Yes. It has its moments.

Bert I. Gordon directed a lot of bad movies that dealt with scale. In this one, a man survives a plutonium blast in the desert and finds his burns have healed overnight. Then he discovers he's growing. Pretty soon, he's getting too big for his house - and there's some interesting moments when, in 1950's fashion, he gets too big for his wife and romance. Soon he's rampaging around town in a giant diaper, while the authorities decide how to deal with him. It had a sequel! I'll cover "War of the Colossal Beast" eventually.
