Friday Night Frights: The Food of the Gods (1976)

Purchase from Barnes & Noble
Welcome to tonight's episode of Friday Night Frights.

Tonight's feature is The Food of the Gods, written and directed by Bert I. Gordon and based on the novel by H.G. Wells (which is available to read in an online web edition).

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.
