  • The towering terror from hell!
Movie Quote(s):
  • Sgt. Luis Murillo: Giants can run fast. They have long legs.
  • Joyce Manning: Do you know what it's like, just sitting around waiting for news? Maj. Mark Baird: You mind if I suggest a remedy? It's an old one , but it usually works. Find something else to occupy your mind. Do you have a job? Joyce Manning: I write copy for an advertising agency . Maj. Mark Baird: Now that should help you forget your troubles. Joyce Manning: I can imagine myself going back to write all those tired old adjectives: "Tremendous," "Gigantic," "Colossal!" You know what they'd mean to me now, don't you? Glenn! A colossal freak, Major, and he's my brother!
  • Maj. Mark Baird: Can't you find us some warehouse to keep him in temporarily?
  • Maj. Mark Baird: How do you reason with a 60 foot giant?
  • Dr. Carmichael: There's nothing in our directives about a 60 foot giant!
Movie Trivia:
  • The final scene of the film, lasting less than one minute, is in color.
  • Throughout the movie Col. Manning says only one word: the name of his sister, "Joyce".
  • American-International changed to title to a more dramatic-sounding "War of the Colossal Beast" and avoided mentioning in the ad campaign that it was a sequel to an earlier film.
  • This was originally released as part of a pre-packaged double feature with Attack of the Puppet People (1958), another film by Bert I. Gordon.
