Childhood Chiller!
4 May 2007 | by mikemc1See all my reviews

How can any horror fan growing up with horror flicks of the late 50's through mid 60's ever deny films like The Cape Canaveral Monsters, Attack of the 50ft Woman, Amazing Colossal Man, etc.? Excellent drive-in horror! We start with a seemingly innocent couple who are driving to a rocket lauch. BUT... A spaceship lands while they're enroute. And this radioactive alien (who's just a hairy white man made to look big) contaminates them and turns them into The Cape Canaveral Monsters. Then, they go on this mission with a laser shooting missiles and satellites when they are launched from Cape Canaveral. It's really quite fun.
