Jack the Giant Killer

Time Out says

Amiable children's fantasy, looking uncannily like one of the Schneer-Harryhausen series. Hardly surprising, perhaps, since Edward Small turned down the chance to produce The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, then set out to duplicate it when it turned out to be a huge success. Unable to persuade Harryhausen to cooperate along with Juran, Mathews and Thatcher, Small had 'Harryhausen' special effects created by Project Unlimited. Far more persuasive than the jerky demonic creatures (including a griffin and an octopedic sea monster) is Torin Thatcher's sinister, Lugosi-like performance as the wicked Master of Demons.
