Product Overview

Get ready for a taste of hell! Legendary director Bert I. Gordon (The Amazing Colossal Man) - the father of the "gigantic creature" genre - delivers the biggest Midnite Movie of all with this spine-tingling tale of ecology gone berserk. Based on H.G. Wells' classic horror novel, The Food of the Gods predicts a future where animals are suddenly at the top of the food chain...and eager to get their fill!

On a remote island, a mysterious substance is oozing from the ground. A farmer sees that it acts as a growth hormone and thinks his fortune is made. But when rats, chickens, worms and wasps begin sampling the potent substance, they morph into bloodthirsty giants! Now, it's up to the island's few residents and visitors to destroy "the food of the gods"... before the animals take over for good!

Review Looking at the cover, you might think that the food of the gods is people, but you'd be wrong. Unfortunately, it's a pina colada-like substance that bubbles up out of the ground and makes animals gigantic...From Bert I. Gordon, who's basically a giant-animal-movie cottage industry unto himself, this concerns a football player who, after thinking to himself at length in voiceover about how his dad always kept going on about how nature is gonna get her revenge one day, is attacked by mosquitoes the size of, uh, footballs. His friend is killed (a big proboscis right into the chest, you know that's gotta hurt), so he goes to a nearby farmhouse for help, where he's promptly attacked by a turkey the size of an allosaur...I don't know how, but Food Of The Gods somehow managed to rack up enough public interest to justify a sequel 13 years later, which I haven't seen. At least the British Columbian scenery is pretty, and there are a few chuckles for those who like to see rats get "blown away" by little squirts of red paint. Rated the 18th greatest B-movie of all time by Maxim magazine, right between The Warriors and Walking Tall.
