Illustration for article titled Must See: Attack of the 50 Foot Woman

Must-see movies are futuristic classics that shouldn't be missed. Of course, not every must-see is perfect. That's why we've rated them 1-5 on the patented "crunchy goodness" scale.

Title: Attack of the 50 Foot Woman
Date: 1958

Vitals: A boozy, tranquillizer-popping babe named Nancy turns deadly when an alien encounter doses her with height-altering radiation. She goes on a rampage looking for her philandering husband Harry, whom she scoops up King Kong style in her well-manicured mitt. Campy in the extreme, this flick features a skirt-wearing dude alien and a lot of weird messages about female power.

Famous names: Nathan Juran, Allison Hayes

Crunchy goodness: 3

Sight you'll never unsee: Super-sized Nancy tromping through town in slo-mo, wearing bedsheets across her private parts, yelling "Haaarrrry!" in her husky giantess voice.


Copycat: Daryl Hannah starred in a 1993 remake that received almost no notice in the theaters, but has been immortalized all over the internet by giantess fetishists.

Most deadly spoiler: All giant monsters can be felled with handy electricity towers - why should a giant lady be any different?
