Review: Giant from the Unknown (1958)

Brand new on Blu-ray, Giant from the Unknown hails from that golden age of backyard B-movies both wonderful and bizarre, the fabulous '50s! As film historian Tom Weaver notes in his excellent (and quite funny) audio commentary, there were so many low-budget monster movies made during the 1950s that the market was not merely saturated, it was actually destroyed by being over-served. Lucky for us, these films still exist and often retain every bit of the charm and imagination that can still cause curious cinema searchers to seek them out and enjoy their many wonderful qualities. This is exactly the sort of fun and fanciful mid-century genre picture that Cereal At Midnight was born to appreciate.
