Working titles of this film were The Astounding Giant Woman and Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman. The film became a cult classic and is frequently shown in film study courses. Modern critics often compare the film with Universal-International's 1957 production, The Incredible Shrinking Man (see below). In September 1993, a remake of The Fifty Foot Woman was made for television, starring Daryl Hannah and broadcast on the HBO cable channel.
