A mysterious series of food truck robberies makes government officials doubt that the 60-foot tall Colossal Man is dead. He is discovered in a desolate mountain range in Mexico, insane and horribly disfigured.

The producers decided to use the very heavy make up on Duncan 'Dean' Parkin as a way to disguise the fact that a different actor was playing Col. Manning, especially since in a dream sequence flashing back to the original film featured Glenn Langan, the star of that film. See more »
Maj. Baird says the Colorado River, where the Colossal Man fell into at the end of the first movie, is a mile deep in some points. The deepest the river gets is just over 100 feet. See more »
The foot that made that print is about ten times the size of a normal man's. That would make him about sixty feet tall.
Glenn was sixty feet tall!

"War of the Colossal Beast," the sequel to the cult-classic "The Amazing Colossal Man," isn't as bad as some critics would have you believe. It's loaded with unintentional laughs ("Get the picture?"), lots of cultural stereotypes, and a make-up design that is superior to most of its sci-fi contemporaries. The Colossal Beast's first appearance in the film can still shock the unsuspecting viewer, and the end sequence at Griffith Park -- along with the reinserted color pay-off -- make this film a must for any '50s B-movie enthusiast.
