Legendary director Bert I. Gordon - the godfather of the gigantic monster movies delivers this spine tingling tale of ecology gone mad. Based on H.G. Wellsʼ classic horror novel, The Food of the Gods predicts a future where animals are suddenly at the top of the food chain... eager to get their fill! When a strange edible substance appears on a remote island, local farmer Mr. Skinner (John McLiam) and his wife (Ida Lupino) deem it a ʻFood of the Godsʼ and feed it to their farm animals. Soon other wildlife such as rodents and insects have eaten the food, which makes anything that consumes it grow in size. These gigantic beasts start terrorizing the island, with an athlete named Morgan (Marjoe Gortner) among those who are fighting for their lives against the gargantuan creatures.
