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.

|Trivia||Though it's said to be adapted from "H.G. Wells," the plot of a man (in this case, an elderly couple) with food that makes animals gigantic (including a rooster) in order to one day feed the world's hungry, comes from the Jules Verne adaptation, "Mysterious Island (1961)" (famous for the stop-motion effects by Ray Harryhausen).

[pointing at bubbling fluid from ground]
That's what your husband brought us out here for?
Mrs. Skinner: Just like Mr. Skinner found 'er. Just like that one day. At first he thought it was oil and it was going to make us rich.
Jack Bensington: Come on, Lorna.
Lorna Scott: No, wait a minute, Jack, wait a minute. Look at this. I've never seen anything like it. Mrs. Skinner, how did your husband happen to feed it to the chickens?
Mrs. Skinner: Well, when we found out it weren't no oil, there was nothing to do about it, so we fed it to the chicks.
Lorna Scott: Right out of the ground like that?
Mrs. Skinner: No, miss. Nothing'll eat it unless we mix it with chicken feed.
Lorna Scott: And did all the chickens grow?
Mrs. Skinner: Only the baby chicks. Nothing seemed to affect the grown ones. Nothing at all.
Lorna Scott: Nothing happens to the full-grown chickens, is that right?
Mrs. Skinner: Well, they didn't grow none, if that's what you mean. But I didn't say nothing happened to 'em.
Lorna Scott: Well, what did happen?
Mrs. Skinner: They got et... by the real big ones.
Jack Bensington: Come on, Lorna.
