Trivia

The catering van in the dinner scene reads "Arkoff and Corman, Industrial Caterers", a reference to American-International Pictures producer Samuel Z. Arkoff and director Roger Corman (neither of whom was involved in the original Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958), which was released by Allied Artists). See more »

Goofs

Real-world shots of crowds running scared in the streets do not match the shots of Nancy walking down the empty model streets. Some of the model buildings are noticeably different, too. See more »

B-movie?
27 December 2002 | by AppleAsylumSee all my reviews

Of course it is! This is the type of B-movie that you'll enjoy. I didn't expect to see HANNAH in this role. But it was fun in a corny kind of way. Although it is still the classic story just like the original, it is "made for tv." But thats okay because Hannah leads that "glamor blonde bombshell life" that her beauty stops the film from falling apart. (5)
