Morgan and his friends are on a hunting trip on a remote Canadian island when they are attacked by a swarm of giant wasps. Looking for help, Morgan stumbles across a barn inhabited by an enormous killer chicken. After doing some exploring, they discover the entire island is crawling with animals that have somehow grown to giant size. The most dangerous of all of these, however, are the rats, who are mobilizing to do battle with the human intruders. Written by

Oversized reproductions of worms, chickens, wasps and rats were used to create the gigantic creature effect. Six different mechanized rat heads and four human-motivated rat costumes were also employed. See more »
When Morgan first meets Mrs. Skinner's Rooster, the legs (from the knees down) are visible of the crewmember wielding the giant chicken head. See more »
You know about the food the Skinners have up here?
Yeah, a little.
Well, I can tell you right now if you're entertaining any intention of becoming involved, you're too late. My company controls all rights.
Well then maybe it's not Mr. Skinner I want to see after all, is it?

For some unknown reason, this movie is one of my guilty pleasures. It is a bad movie I can't get enough of. Watching Ida Lupino screech as a giant plastic worm chews on her arm was a camp moment unlike any other. A giant chicken takes out some townsfolk, as do giant rats and giant wasps. All of this happens because the animals eat what appears to be hot marshmallow creme gurgling out of the earth. The special effects are from what appears to be the caveman era, but it is still fun to watch. Another movie that could almost work if remade with today's special effects (and a major script overhaul).
