Attack of the Puppet People / Village of the Giants (1958)

 Attack of the Puppet People (1958, 69 min.)

An "amazing triumph" of special effects (Hollywood Citizen-News), this twisted tale about a deranged maniac who creates a device that shrinks people to foot-high figurines is big on terror! Tired of being toyed with, the puppets launch an attack, and suddenly their captor finds he'd better stop playing - and start praying - because these miniature moppets are hellbent on revenge!

Village of the Giants (1965, 81 min.)

A small town runs into big problems when teenagers hit a growth spurt, turn into gallivanting Goliaths, lead an anti-elder rebellion and terrify anyone under seven feet tall! Featuring Hollywood teen stars Tommy Kirk, Johnny Crawford, Ronny Howard and Beau Bridges, this "fantastic and amusing tale" (Boxoffice) with "stand-out special effects" (Variety) delivers gargantuan, sexy entertainment loaded with rock 'n' roll.
