The Food of the Gods (1976) - (Marjoe Gortner) US one-sheet

This is a 27" x 41" US one-sheet poster designed by Drew Struzan for the 1976 Bert I. Gordon film The Food of the Gods based on part of the H.G. Wells novel The Food of the Gods and How it Came to Earth with screenplay by Bert I. Gordon and starring Marjoe Gortner as Morgan. Plot summary: On a hunting trip on a remote Canadian island a professional football player named Morgan and his friends are attacked by a swarm of giant wasps. They find hostile giant chickens in a barn and then gradually come to the realization that the entire island is crawling with giant animals of various types. Among these are giant rats gathering to attack the intruding humans. The growth of these oversized creatures has been stimulated by an edible substance mysteriously bubbling up from the ground, which a pair of local farmers named Mr. and Mrs. Skinner [John McLiam and Ida Lupino] have begun using as livestock feed and are planning to market as dog food through a company owned by Jack Bensington [Ralph Meeker]. However the growling monster rats get Bensington before the plan can be implemented.
